to the terrerium? or wait longer
    #920075 - 10/01/02 02:55 AM (20 years, 2 months ago)

my freind has 12 fully colonized cakes, he used 2 to make a casing and saw that they were definately 100% colonized throughout. PF Tek says to wait until primordia starts growing before putting them in the terrerium, but from what ive read i imagine a little air exchange would help them pin. should he keep them going in the jars with light 12 on / 12 off, or should he get them going in the terrerium now and have them pin in there? any suggestions? theyve been colonized and getting light for about a week now.
any help appreciated!!!

I've got a bike. You can ride it if you like.
It's got a basket, a bell that rings and
Things to make it look good.
I'd give it to you if I could, but I borrowed it.

I never wait for pins.

If they are already fully colonized, they are done incubating. Go ahead and induce pinning in the terrarium. The light cycle helps do this, but yes a drop in temp/humidity/Co2 concentration is also helpful (if not necessary) for proper pinning.
Sounds promising.

letting them pin wouldn't harm them. but they get bumped around when you take them out of the jar.
it really is up to you.
what we do is take them out and dunk them for 12 hours. gets them nice and moist... all happy for some growing.  :smile:

They're already out of the jars and cased, now he's wondering if he should take them from incubation chamber to fruiting chamber.

yeah put em' in there.
