BRF Cake fruiting temp and time
« on: March 12, 2010, 04:41:09 PM »

Going to put 3 BRF pint size cakes into my FC tomorrow. The easiest temp for me to have them at is about 65-69F. I should be able to maintain 97-99% humidity and I'll have almost exactly 12 hours of indirect sunlight a day. What are some common fruiting times for BRF cakes? and is my temp going to be alright or should I up it? Thanks guy, I'll be shure to show some pics as soon as I have some action.

yea it's sometimes a little cooler in my house to... I try to keep around 70 but it fluctuates a lot.... common fruiting times you can't really say with BRF cakes they can take a month. . . but normally a week or 2. . .  remember name of the game is patience  -_-

Your temps should be OK. I keep mine at 70-72 degrees.  And have had cakes fruit within 4 to 5 days.  But cakes are tempermental and will fruit when they are ready!  =)  Patience is indeed the key sometimes!!

Wow this forum really helps... I'm like the most impatient person on planet earth so its a good practise :p

I'm waiting for about a week now after birth and nothing happens. Almost would've tossed it, thanks for the insight :)

Once I've got first growth I will try to write instructions on growth with an FAQ because lots of things are not answered most instructions.

Thanks bro!! You thing I will be able to fruit my cakes in the same FC as my casings? I figure they might take longer since the RH will be slighly lower, but what do you think? Looking at your results I'll trust your opinion.

I have several containers, I keep 2 big containers right around 90% all the time... I have a few more that I keep at 100% so whenever casings start to pin I move them to the 90 RH. . .  so yes you can do your cakes with the casing until the casing starts pinning then needs to be moved.... hope this helps...good luck bud...

Woke up this morning and one of my cakes has about 7 pins. Oh YEAH! Thanks moorhs. I think I'm gonna try a small casing in with my cakes and see what happens, just for shits. don't have the room yet for more FCs. How long are you incubating your casing? I've read like 3-4 days before FC. OH YEAH!! I needed at least one mushroom so I could get a print, looks like i'm gonna have one.
