PF - Tek / Cake not pinning.
« on: July 18, 2010, 09:20:21 PM »
Hi folks! Saddie again here. So I have followed the PF tek to the letter, things are going well, I have lost one cake to contam and buried outside. Two cakes are fruiting fine. Two cakes have not pinned at all.

- all cakes receive indirect sunlight through the top of their individual FCs
-all cakes get fanned and FAE at least twice a day
- all cakes have been dunked once for 24 hrs in the fridge - still no pinning with the cold shock on two of them. the strain is GT

Any idea how to encourage pinning on these two that are stubborn? Both show full colonization, no contams (yet) and one is growing heavy bright white fuzz myc - just no pins!

I am ready to break them up into some mix outside, or should I crumble them into a big casing box or something? Any ideas?


PF - Tek / Contams? help help this newbie!

Hello everyone! Could someone look at these pics and tell me if it is contaminated or not? It looks rough, but maybe it's just the 'blueing' that happens? Before you judge know this:

1 - It is about 30 degrees in my room. So these are warm, I know, but I can't do anything about that.
2- I *have* been indirectly spraying the cakes, but trying to just spray the walls of my FC and the perlite
3 - this contam was *not* there *at all* 24 hours ago. This is the main reason I think it might be blueing?
4- I just rubbed it with a q tip and blue came off onto the q tip - this means contam right?
5- in the photos it looks a lot greener than it does face to face - it looks more blueish in real life...

6 - the lid on my fc has been shut tight for about 18 out of the 24 hours a day b/c I am not around. I fan it about 4 times a day. Maybe that's what went wrong?

If it is contam, what should I do? There are four other cakes not affected. Any advice? Thanks!
