I posted a while back as to my fluffy mycelium and the fact that the cakes had not started pinning as of yet. There is still no sign of pinning or of any primordia (that i am aware of).

I have attached pictures of my fruiting chamber:

Clear Perspex box
Perlite on base
Water Bath(with a capful of 12% Hydrogen Peroxide) with aquarium heater (set to 26C) and a small powerhead with a venturi to increase FAE

Lamp above on for 6 hours a day to give extra light

The other cake is in the humidity tent that came with the mycobag pack.

Any hints as to what I am doing wrong / why they arent working? the strain is Koh Samui

I cold dunked the cake in the humidity tent a few days ago.

What did you use for the SUB and what did you case with?

Dude is that rock in those pics? Cacti soil maybe?

im gonna assume this is a common cube strain

how long has it been 100% colonized ?, sometimes it can take a month or more after birthing or 100% colonization ot see pins. maybe the middle of the project wasn't done colonizing when you thought. relax, have a smoke,your almost there, it'll do its thing in time...

you could try to put down a layer of moist perlite in the tub. this would prolly increase the rh a bit.

It has been 2 / 3 weeks since I thought it was 100% colonised, its possible it might not be - but im pretty sure it was.

The strain is Koh Samui as stated in first post and there is perlite already down - plus the aquarium heater causes humidity also :)

Sub is Rye and cased with Vermiculite

the only other things in that pic are the perlite, the green thing is to raise it off the perlite :)

take it out of the bag and fold the bag nicely and then get rid of the green thing cause its covering up way to much of the perlite and then place bag on perlite and then cake on bag and take out the heater and put it in a TiT style but, being it summertime man it shouldn't readdy need one. Also add perltie all the way across the FC and then you should have no problem IMO

the humidity in that box is plenty, do you think I should put it directly onto the perlite?

Ill remove it from the bag :)

I've put cakes directly onto perlite before a few times, but some people prefer putting them onto wet vermiculite or foil I think, maybe a jar lid. Have patience, keep humidity high and give it light and air. Good luck mate.

think I have found the issue on one of the bags - the center wasnt colonised - I removed the uncolonised rue and put the cake on some foil on the perlite.

Im hoping it will start throwing pins soon :)

imho if the center wasn't colonized your mycelium was still in the vegetative state. Its going to take a lil while til it recognizes that there is no new food and starts to fruit. G'luck. By the way, Ive never known rye to fruit, ive heard of it bieng used as spawn, but not substrate. When used as spawn rye is known to colonize slower than wbs, popcorn, etc.

I'm pretty sure cubes can and will fruit from rye.

Quit screwing with it.

The cold shock set you back.

Unbagging and removing part of the substrate probably set you back.

Straight rye isn't going to fruit fantastically well, but it should give you something.

Fanning once or twice a day to get fresh air in there won't hurt at all.

The most important thing, though: QUIT SCREWING WITH IT.

finally fruiting! As soon as I removed the uncolonised stuff from the center of the other one within 2 days it was throwing pins.

Didnt realise that Rye wouldnt fruit aswell by itself but seems to be producing a few now :)

I thought all vermiculite looked like that?
