why would you say in the fridge? i thought cold shocking proved to be a compleate myth and it dose nothing benificial
after a moment of thinking about it....start a dunk in the fridge now. Its been two 2.5 weeks. They have to be thirsty.
Then come back and we'll discuss the rest of the questions ask here. :)
Fanning before pinning bad?

#1 Get u some coir in a bowl
#2 boil you some water
#3 pour water into mixing bowl with coir let sit for 30 mins to cool
#4 get your cakes out of the fridge :headbang:
# sorry forgot to take pick of this but u add verm to the cooled wet coir and mix well i went for a 50/50 mix :rasta:
#5 make sure mix is not to wet make u a bed in the jar lid and case the top of the cake with a little layer.. Put them in your FC
# cakes have minor bruisings from the dunk but i have found these little buggers to be stronger than foaf expected!:amazed: They will grow back strong!

Just open the chamber and give it a good quick hard fan and shut it back up.
You will see those dunked cakes become really happy looking the next couple of days.
And see pins in about a week to ten days. ;)

I wouldnt change a thing.
I thought you had knots on some cakes? What happen to that? Was it a false alert?

1. 100% colonization
2. expose to light
3. increase fresh air exchange
4. drop temperatures to approx 70 - 72F
5. increase humidity to approx 100%
8. wait approx. 3-7 days
If you are doing all of the above and not getting pinning then maybe you have a rare non-fruiting strain. In which case it doesn't hurt to consider spawning to bulk.
I mean, after all they're not going anywhere anyways.

fanning is your #1 pinning trigger.
That is wrong. If that was the number one reason, invitro would be a myth and never done.
Purging of the co2 is a factor. Which in many cases..esp in Gladiatrix's case, simply birthing them from the jars and putting them in the fruiting chamber is plenty.
Fanning once a day is plenty. Excessive fanning will only dry casings/cakes.
Lowering temps also is a contributing factor along with light. Light being the least important.
Even with plenty of FAE, light, and lowered temps....dry casings./cakes will not fruit mature fruit bodies and in many cases will not fruit at all.
Ive seen cakes shrivel down and die because lack of moisture and never see one hyphal knot.
Fanning is over rated until pinning is noticed.
Lesson learned here....IF you plan to fruit cake bodies, dont birth until you see knots...
