Hey...I hope this is an apt place for this question.
I have a few dozen brf cakes in fruiting phase and the fruiting is not really happening.
I've never had this happen but what from I have read I may have it too wet/humid.
This is the first time I dunked the cakes right after birthing vs just placing them into the fruiting chamber.
I dunked them for 20 hours and they are all sitting on a 3 inch bed of strained perlite.
I initially was misting them when I fanned them....but I have stopped that.
The mycelial growth is vigorous and not contaminated. It's been about a week for the first batch and there is lots of knobby growth that looks like the beginning of pins...then they don't pin.
I've stopped misting and am focused on FAE ....fanning 5-6x a day. The gauge is pegged at 99%.
After about 36 hrs of that routine I am getting growth that looks like fruiting bodies but no caps. Like puff balls actually.
I'm worried about how to resolve this. Just keep fanning and wait? Pull them out and change something? There's 48 cakes...obviously I don't wanna lose them.
Any guidance here would be much appreciated.
