from knots to pins
    #1106556 - 12/03/02 10:36 AM (14 years, 8 days ago)

Greetings fellow fungus fans. Like many others, I'm waiting for my casing to come good, and have little experience to fall back on. It's 2 BRF PF tek half-pint cambodian cakes cased with 50/50+. 70-80 degrees, wet perlite, 8 hours indirect natural diffised light a day, cased 18days ago, 'birthed' 12days ago.

What are the bastards supposed to look like between knots and pins? A knot is supposed to look like a little polystyrene ball that spilt out of an old beanbag (according to the pics I've seen), and a pin is a tiny fat shroom. What about in between?

Mine look like pieces of frayed rope, or tiny fans of a 5-year-old toothbrush. Yah! I wish I had a camera to post a pic instead of these crappy descriptions. They're kind of like rhizo strands, but lifting from the top of the surface, certainly nothing like the descriptions or any picture I've ever seen. What else? a bit like feathers poking their way through a brown pillowcase, wrong way up so they're broadest at the tip.

Anyone experienced and imaginative enough to visualise what I mean, and diagnose something? The wait is killing me. C'mon, let me have it, both barrels.

Those are rhizomiphoric growth.
From that growht will come myceliul gifts of joy.
Just continue as you have been doing all along.
Time will heal all the pain that waiting caused.

they sound healthy. in the next stage the myc will knit together and start to have a kind of matted appearance, at this time you should start to see little bumps forming. Within a few days of the bumps you'll see little pins, i don't think there is really much of an in between stage. i got cambos too and they seem to pin when they feel like it, they don't really need cold shocking. my temps are about like yours, i've had them pin around the mid 80's as well, definitely a heat strain.

Same here. On one casing (1/2 a 1/2 pint jar) i have 2 shrooms growing, And on the other (used 1 jar) I also only have 2 shrooms growing. My temps are in the low 70's. Humidity is not all that great either. Probably could be the problem..

thankyou rhizo and derrayld for this help. a nice bit of encouragement always goes down well - too much negativity is a bad thing, mmkay? saw the first tiny pin on it this morning, as I did my pre-work fanning. alley-oop-la!

what do you do to wake up with a grin on your face?
go to bed with a coathanger in your mouth.

wow, watching a pinset must be like watching a sunrise. When I got back from work, 10 pins. Do they always come up in groups over a few hours? Sorry to ask a newbie question but I never cased before.

Has anyone seen any pinsets recently?

I cased probablyt around a week ago, the growth came quick and 2 days later i threw some saran over the top and stuck it on my tv, nothing has happened really since then and it look pretty much the same, my temps are are form about 60 at night to 70 during the day.
