Here is a picture of the cakes ?double stacked? in the terrium, These cakes were placed there early last night, the terrium is misted twice daily and fanned twice daily.



The terrium is simply a 12? x 24? aquarium, with a fish pump ?running 24/7? ?double pumper? used for air exchange. An air hose from the pump also was coiled up at the bottom of the tank under the perlite, and wire mesh. The air hose was capped at one end, and many tiny pin punchures were put in the hose in order to uniform air output through out the entire bottom of the terrium. This also seems to raise humidity as the extremely wet perlite constatly bubbles. The wire mesh was used so that the cakes do not get over saturated from teh extremely wet perlite.

Here is another view...



This is the 6 cake casing covered...



What seems to be little dust particles all over the foil is actually the result of my stupidity. I pored out the perlite into the terrium while still in the closet. I forgot that perlite also tends a chalk like material in teh bag due to the perlite pieces being crushed.
?Note to self empty perlite in a very open area.?

Here is the casing showing colonization after only 2 days.

I have decided that the 4 remaining cakes will be used for an outdoor tek. It will be my first time and I've always wanted tp try.

Here is the casing 1 day later ?today?



Nice grown in less than 30 hrs I would think.

I have decided to patch the casing in an attempt to even out myc grown. Moist vermicultie was placed in a small container, and microwaved for 10 mins, after the vermiculite was cooled, it as placed on visible myc growth.



Hopefully this will give the center of the casing some time to catch up., we?re almost ready for friuting conditions I would think.

Here is how the cakes in the terrium look as to date...



It is easy to notice fluffy white growth on the cakes

Here is an update

My casing has been moved to a terrium for fruiting conditions...within 24hrs I have noticed what seems to be the formation of pins...



I checked again a few hours later and a few obvious pins have appeared. So far the casing is looking good so far.

The cakes on the other hand have been giving me problems. It is the first time I have used my current tank setup and it seems to hold humidity ?and heat? allot better that me previous setup. The cakes have been constantly producing what I call ?cotton wool? or fluffy myc, with little pinning.



It is very obvious that the temp in the terrium is way too high. Therefore I have placed a large metal cup ?filled with water and frozen? into the terrium which I replace when it has melted.



I definately prefer casings over cakes and day of the week.

You`re right Mr Puke.
Take a look at the bottom right corner, looks a bit green, then look at the rest and suddenly you notice the greenish tint.

Hey thanks for the observations, after looking at the casing , it fortunately was just the picture, not a single sign of contams, I'll upload some pictures later.

Here is a picture of the casing today...see no green contams :smile:  Note this a only a small subsection of the overall casing.



Another picture...



I am really dissapointed with the performance of the cakes, I am going to try cold shocking, if performance does not improve I will harvest what is there and use the cakes to spawn some poo.

Awesome job so far. Whats going on with the cakes exactly? Im on my first grow ever (right now in the jars 95% colonized) and Im curious so the same thing doesn't happen. Is it too much humidity and heat?

Keep up the awesome work man

I've been told before that this is an indication that the humidity is too high. I however usually cold shock my cakes by placing them in the freezer for a few hours and drop them back in the terrium. This way, even if you humidity is a little off, pinning will occur. I'm sure can be argued.

Don`t use the freezer mushroommaniac.
the temperature is too cold for cold-shocking.
You`re going to destroy your mycelium.

HMMMM Perculiar.
Learn something new everyday.
I think though that it`s still overkill.
You only cold shock to start the fruiting cycle.
So all that is needed is a few degrees dropped, that is why the fridge is ideal.
I think the freezer will probably set you back some time because you are stunting the mycelium.

In reply to:

Someone else is catching on....... they are a waste of time to fruit, only good for spawn.

That casing does look a bit green in the first couple pics, but your camera can play many tricks. I bet its slight blueing.

Here is how the casing looks today...it?s not the prettiest set
i?ve seen but what more can you ask from a plain verm casing. As you can see the myc is extremely aggresive with this strain, and if you ook at the bottom right of the picture w can also see a mutation of some sort that exists on 2 other ones.



As for the cakes, they show signs of improved pinning, but what is an improvement from total shit...just impressive shit. I?m thinking of casing em? or spawning some poo.
