    you said pins are forming? I think if the filter patch is on there you can wait to open bit if pins are going crazy maybe try FAE but if things look good just let it be for now... maybe some pictures?

    yea i don't know how I feel about fruiting in bags would rather break it up and send to monotub... but have heard you can get alot of flushes from a bag as there is more sub than pin area...

    I was skeptical too, this was just the brf cakes added to 1lb of sub thats why i kept it low key, didn't really expect too much. I'm working on being patient too hahahaha

    It's the hardest part! I'm always like dont look at them you just put them away lol or maybe this needs a shake, thats why lc is good you can always feel good knowing that needs a daily shake lmfao

    3 out of 7 brf cakes are showing signs of fruiting. They were all growing mushrooms in vitro before being placed in a SGFC. Now they arent doing anything. I had 3 small mushrooms about an inch long break their veil already from one of the growing cakes... any suggestions? Been misting and fanning at least 3x a day, fanning 3-5x

    From my assumption id say they have to rebuild their climate again, what race again were they PE? So they were in their happy home then you removed them into a larger home so now they just have to decide which rooms are theirs and they should be happy again! Id say give it like 7 to 10 days? Never done cakes... any new growth or anything?

    No condesation, I mist the cakes and perlite directly and then fan as per the pinned brf tek in the forum. Should there be condensation in a sgfc? I figured with holes on all sides there would be minimal moisture, but increased air flow?
