Are you guys sure he does not have some kind of contaminant? Look here at how downy these guys are. That does not look right. Vert parasitising the fruit body?

3rd pin on the right may be a cause for some concern. Looks like they need to be picked, I don't think those are going to get any bigger. Things are looking abit grey and wispy.

I thought just this looking at the pic of the pins above, I scroll down, and fahtster says it for me ;)

I've seen some cakes and strains that when they get over saturated, they don't push out fruits well. Sometimes they'll be tiny like that, and after a week, just never get going and I need to clean the cake off well, and replace it back without dunking. Some strains are tricky like that... I do not recall how the pfcs where when I worked with them, but someone mentioned a lil lower humidity for them, might be what is up... Something, maybe the cake, a lil too damp/moist.

I'd cut the misting down to almost nill, and increase the air changes to naturally dry out the cakes and see if new/bigger/nicer fruit bodies form. Do this after cleaning all these current non-growing pins off the cake. Give it some more time though and lets see what happens with it currently.

Thanks peeps,
yea i did water the verm. plus it is not the usual verm i use. It was from a unopened bag. I also thought things just don't look right. I stopped the misting and will try to fan more often. I do it in the am and when i get home from work and before bed. I do think they are way too wet from what others say. Live and learn, ya know. I'm so used to growing PE's with little trouble. I'm going to clean the nasty looking dark aborts off and i won't dunk after this flush. Well i guess their is still a lot to learn. did so well with other strains , got a little too confident, i guess.
I'll keep ya posted.
Thanks again for the input !
Peace !

Pfc is known for aborts, not to worry man, you look like your doing a pretty good job. Be sure to pick any caps that darken and get pointy like that, thats a telltale sign for aborts. You dont want any bacteria setting in. Peace.

Yea, i did not like the looks of them so i cleaned off both cakes last night. some started to rot, turn dark ! No dunk, they seem very wet. so they will be left to refruit. There were lots of primordal pins tho
