PF - Tek / Re: No Pinns
« on: November 27, 2008, 08:20:55 AM »
whats your temp, and humidity?   you need around 74 degrees Fahrenheit, and as close to 100% humidity as possible.  they also need a little light to stimulate pinning.  the light from a window during the day is sufficient.

Just leave them in your FC.  you can do an additional dunk and roll inbetween flushes if you choose to, this will rehydrate your cakes.

small video on a simple fruiting chamber, and how perlite works.  i dont use as many holes as they show.  i found it to lower the humidity to far.

perlite is a crystalline substance it does not soak up water.  it has many "nooks and crannies" with a large surface area.  is merely retains water in crevices on its surface.

if you have a light directly over head i dont see how it would hurt.   i use natural light threw a window so everything is transparent.

just fill a strainer with perlite. then turn the faucet on and soak the perlite.  rotating the strainer so as to hit all of the perlite.  do that for a few minuits, then let it strain completly.  kinda level it off with your hand or a spoon or something.  put your trays in and the lid on.

PF - Tek / Re: Dried out cakes?
« on: November 02, 2008, 07:01:11 PM »
If you followed the steam tek they should not be to dry.  ive had luck before with fliping stalled cakes upside down, then tap them until the cake moves down just a little in the jar creating a small gap in the bottom of the jar.  then let them colonize the rest of the way, leaving them upside down.  Air exchange with BRF is not nessicary but if you used the lids for the jars and put them on with the rubber down, it will slow the colonization imo.

Cultivation / Re: Fisrt straw spawn stalled?
« on: November 02, 2008, 06:49:39 PM »
should i add the verm now?  it dosent seem to be 100% colonized on the straw.  my goal was semi bulk project.  I was just experimenting.  I followed an artical i read on the shroomery

http://www.shroomery.org/8392/Straw-as-a-Substrate   

i think the screw up in it is that the straw is not kept close enough togeather, providing to large of gaps between pieces.  next time i think i will try a straw log or somthing along those lines.  to keep the straw substrate in close confinement with itself.

I too have experianced the slow colonization of the Hawaiian strain.   I once had pf cakes that took 6 weeks to colonize.  I have since moved to grains recently and am 2 weeks into colonizing on WBS still not fully colonized.  I have no advice on speeding the strain up.   Im just dealing with it for now.  But I am serioulsly thinking about trying other strains.

Cultivation / can i boil grain jars?
« on: September 28, 2008, 08:45:28 AM »
I am about to start my first grain spawn jars.  ive have read that i would absolutly need a pressure cooker when i do grain.  as apposed to just using a pot and boiling like i do with brf cakes.  Im very anxiouse to start this but will not be able to afford a pressure cooker for another 2 weeks.  Can i just boil the grain jars as i do the brf or must i wait for the pressure cooker?

PF - Tek / raising humidity
« on: August 11, 2008, 10:28:13 AM »
I am using a clear plastic tub, with hole son all six sides.  i have a 3 1/2 inch layer of perlite on the bottom with my cakes sitting on a small piece of tinfoil.  my relative humidity has only reached 57%.  why is my humidity so low?  when the the rr lets grow mushroom video says that it should maintain itself?  and how should i raise the humidity?
