Have you picked up the thread down under cakes?

never hurts to dunk them to make sure it's ok.
what's the temperature ?

ill bet its moisture to. Keep the temps up. Also I have read not to birth untill the first pins show this may be part of it. Did you case? How airtight is your container? Do you fan them or make sure the Carbon dioxide gets out of the chamber? are you giving them light? Light stimulates pinning. Maybe you just have a massive first flush comming up.

nan, what do you mean "picked up the thread down under the cakes"? i scraped off most of the dry verm when i birthed them but i did not want to dig too much if that is what you are referring to. temp is about 65-70 generally and they get plenty of light i make sure of that. i have them sitting by the window although i hear direct sunlight is bad so should i change their location and i have a growing light on them about 1 hour a day. i fan enough i think but my lid is simply saran wrap because i haven't had time to built a wood frame so im sure it lacks a good seal. also i just drug my cheap ass to the hardware store today and had plexiglass spray shields cut. cheaper than i thought, i should have done it sooner. before i was just spraying against the glass to break up the water droplets...works shitty i soon learned. i also have some in a chamber with perlite but it doesnt seem very humid in there...little condensation on the sides and lid. can you dunk them before a flush? wont that drown the mycelium if its not dry...same idea as not directly spraying the cakes.

yes, you can dunk before a flush, so long as you keep submersion time at 24 hours or less, the mycellia won't drown.
but those temps are likely the real culprit,
boost it up to at least 75, more like 80, if you want to see real growth.

as for the humidity not seeming up there, trust me, it is. All my meters are registering 95, min, yet, I don't see much condensation at all. perhaps perlite just really frickin' rocks?

Properly laid out, damp Perlite has the moist surface area of like a football field or something. The effect of hundreds of tiny pores in the material.

With a spray mister, the Humidity stays pretty high.

how often should you "air out" the terrarium. and what effects will not airing it produce.?

Try to fan and mist once a day at the VERY LEAST.
Not fanning leaves stagnant air in your rig. This is good for contaminates- bad for shroomsGive 'em the fresh O2 about every 8 to 10 hrs. This worked for my friend. Your cubes will love you for it! Not to dam often or temp/humidity might suffer....Find balance Sean.
