Before he left for a week and a half, my cat put a cake that he had been getting ready for flush #2 in the fridge. When he came back from his trip his cake had pins and some small mushrooms on it. It was in a sealed jar so it had humidity but no light no air exchange and very cold refridgerator temps. How was this thing able to pin in such a hostile environment? My cat is pleased but confused.

What strain? B+ is known to tolerate cold temps. Cold shocking is known to produce pins. I am suprised that fridge temps allowed further growth also.

there is some air in there, your fridge does have air in it. there is air in the jar as well. over those ten days those mushrooms would have fruited and fully openned up and dropped spres, but since they were in the fridge they grew very slowly, unless you are absolute zero molocules still move and life does happen (unless the organisim cannot sustain itself given the environment, but 45 degrees F doesn't kill much) and im sure it got enough light before you popped it into the fridge to know it can fruit (especially since it had fruited before)

peace, ar393
