First grow, poor fruiting, explanation?
    #9570691 - 01/08/09 02:39 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

My 10 BRF cakes were in jars for 2 months before birthing (low temps in beginning), then dunked for 24 hours but not rolled. After 8 days in the FC, I was getting a lot of fuzzy growth but no pins, so I posted. I was told to FAE more and keep my temps at 70 or above.

Well, its now been 16 days in the chamber and the fruiting pattern seems bizarre. Im getting two fruits on one cake, one fruit on a 2 cakes, and the rest are just tiny growths.

I am making this post because the 3 fruits I have plucked from the cakes (because their veils broke) have been smaller than my pinky finger. Any ideas to get bigger and more fruits out of these cakes or are they hopeless?

I really hope I'm just being impatient or something and soon tons of healthy fruits will litter my FC.


Here is my FC after 16 days. Humidity is at 99% and temp is 69-73F. Thats my biggest fruit right now. Depressing.

I may be talking out of the wrong end of my body, is this overlay????? can it even happen on a cake?  The micro climate that rolling provides may give a pinning loc.

Would dunking and rolling help, or just patients?

anyone? anyone?

No.

I would highly suggest redunking after your 1st flush and rolling the cakes in vermiculite for a better pinset. 2nd flushes on properly hydrated cakes usually produce larger fruits than the 1st.

well I had some success with the pf tek, nothing extraordinary but better flushes than what you're seeing.  You should have probably rolled them in verm. if i were you, id re drunk for 12 hours then roll in verm and follow up with the same thing you've been doing.  Also, how many holes do you have drilled into the FC?

I like this idea. I'm glad someone else agrees this might work. Can I dunk and roll whenever I want or do I have to wait until all fruits stop growing.

Well, actually I went with the original PF Tek which supported the dual chambered FC, not the shotgun FC. So I have no holes. I try and FAE every hour I am awake.

Yes, all of your fruits need to be removed before dunking.

Don't forget to rinse your cakes off before and after dunking.

You can dunk anytime, you may want to clear any larger ones
