I never fruited cakes (spawned to bulk) but a credible source (mycologist) said that you should allow your cakes to sit (about a week if I recall correctly) once fully colonized to allow the mycellium to digest the substrate. He said this process goes on when you birth a cake anyways, except its now exposed to open air instead of its sterile jar. He also noted that that cakes that have been allowed to sit and "consolidate" pin much faster. Since it seems you have the time you should consider looking into it.
And yes I do believe sunlight will be more beneficial to you than any other kind of light. If you really want a bunch of pins you could wrap the jars in foil to get them to pin everywhere from the reflection (Hippie has a pic of this somewhere in an invitro jar)

Cultivation is cultivation. I'm an under the belief that I would rather take a large risk for a short period of time as apposed to taking a large risk for a long period of time.
I'm completely for eye-popping grows, and I'm rooting for you, but don't forget that in most places--if not all of them-- sentencing gets much harsher the more one has in their satchel.
Be careful bud! :reb:

Yea it was a little work but I got everything done in a day. I had a little help. My new PC hold 32 pf jars at once though so it only took 4 PC sessions. I was thinking of doing mono tubs but I dont have a drill or polyfill. I will fan this time but its no biggie. I can't wait to show you guys the pics of the mountains of boomers this will produce!
Is your PC a 23 qt Presto? I have one and mine only holds 24 half pints, and I have a makeshift platform on the bottom that keeps the bottom row of jars 3" off the bottom of the PC so boiling water won't slosh in them because they're so short.

Thanks so much! I am actually pondering the thought of adding 120 invitro jars to the party! LMAO! Seriously though, they are great animals, they dont like to be held that much but Im sure you have gained patience through mycology. They do better living alone, imo. I will try and snap a couple of shots of her tomorrow when its light outside anyways. She has actually grown quite a bit since this pic was taken close to a year ago. :) Thanksfor stopping by the thread :)
If you fruited those jars invitro, it would be a lot less work--but not nearly as pretty. Good vibes, bro; you are getting close!
