Sharkie's definitely got something with the leave it alone idea... I, however, have had PE's fruit great on cakes, even invitro, so don't give up, I believe you'll have some fruits soon.. Good Luck!!
Yeah just let em go for a bit. In my experience PE does not like cakes and is a weak fruiter on BR cakes. Which ones are which? Also a little indirect light helps sometimes. Chill a little on the watering, don't want to waterlog em. I know it's tough to not constantly poke and prod especially when you see those first few pins. But a little patience will go a long way for ya. Keep us posted though and feel free to ask any other questions you've got.

Yours do look wet.
Try increasing air exchange for a little while.
Best of luck

but i am curious because i nocced my 2 bags(tyvek filter patch bags) up a month ago and they have been fully colonized for about a week & 1/2 - two weeks.
although im a newb and really could be missing them i see no pins
i see some myclium growth that is sprouting upwords as if it may turn into a pin however i dont know if thats how pins start or not
any ideas on if this is a problem and how to solve it or if im just impatient.
i know some ppl dunk their cakes b4 their first fruiting cycle
would some water help them.
also too the past 5 days i have put them in indirect sunlight and have put a fan close to the filter patch. However i read that pins like co2 as apposed to air so now im considering no faning them. any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. :)
