I'm not sure why you don't have any mold growing,
it could be due to several things. My first
question is - where is your mold growing?
If it is too cold, too wet, or has too much light it
won't grow very well.
The fastest way that I've found to grow mold is....
lightly moisten the fruit, put some dust on it,
put it in a shoebox and keep it in a warm,
dark place for a few days.
This whole procedure is in Thinking Fountain at
I think that darkness and yucky dust are the two
essential ingredients for good mold growth. If you
do end up growing mold, send a picture of it and
I'll include it in Thinking Fountain.
Good Luck growing your mold.
If you have any other questions, feel free to write
