Please help!!! Casing not pinning!!
    #1049773 - 11/13/02 06:03 PM (15 years, 10 days ago)

About two weeks ago I cased 4 BRF cakes with a 50/50 of verm and peat. Now, the top is almost fully colonised, but it's not pinning. I have dropped the temp to 60f, twice for a duration of about 20 mins, exposed to light, and fanned 4 or 5 times a day. The temp in the terrarium is 71f, and the humidity is 85. I am scared it will get overlayed soon. What should I do???!!!!!! Thanks a lot for any help:)

No big deal with P. cubensis.

Sit back and wait. Drink a tea. Eat some chocolate.

Well today, there are lots of pins. There must be about 40 or 50, but they dont really have brown tips, they are all white. Am I just paranoid, or is this just the early stage of dovelopment??

Well I cant really say because usually when I notice my pinns, they are nice and brown on the top. I dont really have to much experience with casings, I am just learning. My guess would be that I am paranoid. Thanks for all the help guys:)

heh!  my first casing attempt was f*cked up too.  *hardcore sulking*  I did the horse shit and seed spawn...that colonized beautifully....did my casing, got the H2O content JUST so and even made sure the pH was 7.5...let it sit in complete darkness for 3 days...peeked today and there was NOTHINGGGGG accept a wee bit of mycillium up about the sides. 
ya, I'm feeling like a real winner about now.  :frown:
*single tear slides down cheek*
life sucks!

I wish I could see any pins in mine. I cased about 1.5 months ago and all I have is mycelium. I am about to give up. This is the 3rd casing of Gulf Strain and none have pinned yet. Any guesses why?

Well I was using this casing tech I got from some guy in Florida. Basically it is a BRF substrate crumbled over a 50/50 perlite and soil then soil on that. At first the humidity was way off, b/c he was kind of stupid and told me it didn't matter that I live in the desert and assumed the humidity would be fine. After I figured that out I moved it to a terrarium with moist perlite on the bottom. Fan it every day, but that didn't seem to be working I couldn't get the humidity up over 85%. So I have set up a ultra-sonic humdifier. That seemed to help some, but then the mycelium just seemed to stall, and not take over the casing layer. I think I am giving up on this time around, and I am heading on to koh sumai in the Hydra-pod. This should solve all my problems with humidity. It is really difficult getting the humidity up in the desert, but if you have any suggestions let me know.
