Could a cake colonize 100% and just never fruit? Like could it be sterile from primorida formation or is this question completely ludacris and should be deleted?

i've never seen that happen. i've had cakes that didn't fruit worth a damn, but they alway's produce something.

I've got three cakes right now that fuzzed and did nothing, got dunked, and ain't doin' nothin' now, all fuzzed up, a few sad abhorts. But, between leavin' one chick for another, they sat awhile. More than not did great tho, first flush. 2nd's been a bust.

it's rare, but possible.
usually we inoculate with spores at 4 sites,
and each point has a 75% chance of yielding a fruitable substrain.
for nothing to grow, all 4 points must have gotten that 1 in 4 chance of a non-fruiting substrain.
unlikely, but not impossible.
