no pins in the center
    #1027465 - 11/06/02 11:07 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

This is interesting.

I have a fully colonized straw/dung substrate in a small 3" deep bread pan that is evenly cased with coir. I initiated pinning 2 days ago. Pins are starting to come up but they are all growing along the perimiter of the bread pan. The center of the casing, which shows just as much mycelial growth as the edges, has no pins at all.

I have no idea why this is happening. Any theories?

if you are misting the casing id guess that you soaked the middle too much causing the mycelium to only be able to grow at the sides. obviously the cure is scratching. hope it helps.

I haven't been misting this casing because it did not look as though it needed it. Perhaps the center is actually too dry? It makes sense that the center would dry out faster than the edges since they are partially protected by the metal pan. It looks ok though...

I had the same exact problem with my casing, I only had about 7 pins in the center that all aborted, but the edges of my casing were flourishing like mad. Someone told me that it was wetter and made a better environment. There are lots of water droplets on the side.
