how long after pinning dose the mushroom become mature?
    #4711859 - 09/25/05 11:46 PM (8 years, 11 months ago)

i have a green 6 watt floursenst light powered by a 12 volt battery. a fan is airating it. the pins are set. How long dose it take from pinning to maturing after the pinn set? cause theve been going for like 3 days now.

it depends on what you are going for?? over all weight or potency...

for max potency it's usually recommended that you pick it just b4 you see the veil tear away from the cap. but if youre going for weight, you want to wait til the veil is fully open and beginningn to drop spores.

personally i like ot maximize potency...

Try to ease up on the light now that you see pins. Light initiates pinning, the dark is when they really grow. :thumbup:

yes it induces pinning but has nothing to do with growth, so i've heard. good luck!

Mine pinned a week ago, looks like it'll be that long til I can pick 'em. They are going faster now that I turned light back to 6-7 hours a day tho. they're not too dry either... if anything, they've been too wet.

another concern is that, sense i rigged the fan to fan the cakes, they seemes to get really dry really quick. i sense cut off the fan and added water to the perlite and misted and cover the tank. but i never realized that fans could do that.
