Patience. It can take from 7-14 days for pins to emerge. Just provide them a high humidity.

Jopo:
Do you need to sterilize the perlite, and how would you accomplish this?

anno:
Perlite is pretty clean out of the bag. If you want to sterilize it, simply boil it in water for 30 minutes.

Joshua:
I usually keep my perlite in a large baking dish while fruiting. When I want to resterilize it I then add water to saturation and place in the oven at 300 F until the water has evaporated.

Adding a bit of peroxide or iodine to the perlite helps in keeping it sterile while fruiting.
