Fruiting Cynascens
    #1065853 - 11/19/02 12:09 PM (15 years, 8 months ago)

Hi everyone,
a friend of mine is going a little bit nervous about his pan culture...
Here's what he did:

-cased a 100% colonized substrate of straw/manure/verm
-waited the casing to be 30% colonized at 28?
-dropped temperature at 23?-24?giving 12hours light and refreshing the air 4 times every hour.

After 10 days still no pins in sight...

As I don't have any experience with pan I had not much to tell him, thought he should have cold-shocked by dropping the temp. at least at 4?-5? but I'm not sure..

Any advice for him?

sounds like he didnt let it colonize all the way, 30%? Manure or straw needs to be 100%. Then it needs to be cased. This is a pretty hard strain to fruit indoors with sucess.

Manure and straw where 100%

30%was the casing layer

But do you think it is a temperature prob?

he said : waited the casing to be 30% colonized at 28?
So that`s not the problem.

I would suggest misting less and possibly droppoing your humidity a bit lower.
I would also reduce light hours to a maximum of 4 hrs on.

Pans should nearly always either pin within eight days of being cased, or pin poorly.
Having worked with a wild variety here which can throw off fluctuating fruiting performance, ive found that the casing layer should colonise about 40%, but that the pans will pin regardless - whether it looks overlayed or whether there is no mycelia visible.
Maintain slightly warmer temps, although 24C is ideal. Humidity should stay fairly high to initiate pins, but should drop as soon as they appear. Fanning is essential. Mist up until pins, then immediately stop, as misting pins will cause aborts.
Good luck - with those temps, maybe its just a poor spore match.
