slow pinning why?
    #1053531 - 11/14/02 08:37 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I am using casing method, with layer of moist verm, crushed cakes, then about a half in layer of verm on top of the cakes.. The casing is in one of the really big cans that used to be filled with diffrent styles of popcorn. Anyway, I mist it maybe 2 times a day, and it recieved light for about 3-4 hours each night. The rest of the time i have a plastic garbage bag inside the can, not touching and of the casing, to keep humidity level up, and i put the lid on and throw it in my closet.. Pins started to form about 4 days ago, and are still really small. Their about a half inch tall after 4 days of growing.. everytime i check im seeing mroe pin start, but the ones that were already their dont seem to be growing to fast.. Does anyone know how i can speed it up a bit.. i may be able to post pictures soon.. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

After four days of pins, you should definatly see growth, I think you need to find a way to keep track of temp and Rh. It sounds like thats your prob. I know the rh doesn't need to be as high in casings as in cakes. Maybe more light but prbly not.

Not light, maybe rh, I think its either rh or air exchange.
