white fuzz on cake
    #4634186 - 09/08/05 04:47 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I currently have my first pint cake of hawaiin's in the FC. My digital humidity gage reads HI, which pisses me off because I thought it would give an actual number at a high humidity. The humidity has to be at least 85% though. I'm using perlite which has made the sides of the FC have condensation. The cake has been in the FC for two days and today I noticed a white fuzz growing on the cake. What is this? and what should I do about it? The temp is 71F. Thanks for any replies.

It's mycellium. Your setup sounds fine.

Do nothing all is well. Thats just myc. It bulks up when fruiting. You should see pins within 1 - 2 days.

I have some hawaiians going, they were slow to colonize though, how was it for you? my africans colonized really quick followed by south american and then B+. the hawaiians are the slackers of the group :frown:

my hawaiians actually colonized much faster and thicker than the pink buffalos I inoculated at the same.  The reason, I believe, is that I put a least three cc's of spores in each pint jar.  :mushroom2:

My Hydrometer says "high" after 90% Rh. all and all it kicks ass, i like that it keeps my record high & low temps & humidity
