Help a beginner?

What would be the possible reason that pf cakes wouldn't pin in the terrarium, or initiate second flushes?

The cake may have dried up. Or Some cakes only give 1 flush. Also theres temperature keep it in the 70's. Humidity needs to be high with PF cakes. Then sometimes it just takes a while for the next flush to come up. :smile:bluhoney

lots of possible reasons: maybe humidity, temperature, light, contaminates, lack of nutrients, type or method of casing, or maybe strain type...

maybe you should say why you think it won't pin. does it look dry, or does it smell funny (sweet or sour)?

I was able to grow some mushrooms by leaving the cakes in the jars until they pinned, and that worked.

When you harvest the mushrooms are you supposed to pick all the mushrooms on the cake or just the mature ones? I just picked the mature ones and all the other mushrooms on the cake stopped growing.

There is no weird smell, they smell like mushrooms.

I think the humidity is good, i don't have a hygrometer but there is always condensation on the sides and top of the terrarium.

The tempature is also in the mid to lower 70's.

Sounds like aborts. Go ahead and remove them before they start to rot.

after removing your abhorts you may also want to try dunking your cakes in order to rehydrate them if they appear to be dry.
peace!
