I know this is a stupid post...
    #1138082 - 12/13/02 10:38 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I've read through the FAQ and other casing documents. Pardon my being a dumbass...

PF and PF Hawaiian are cased in 6 containers. I'm trying to induce pinning. Right now here's the environmental settings:

Temp: 75-77F
RH: 80-90%

I've got fish pumps pushing out the CO2 4x's a day. Are these settings right? Does the temp or the humidity need to be set higher? Should I stop fanning them?

Your temperature is fine. Your humidity should be between 95-100% for pinning.

Just have patience man. Sometimes it takes a while to see any progress.

you should also give them some light. Psilocybe Cubensis is a photosensitive species. Light helps trigger pinning. Just put a flourescent bulb on your terrarium (like the ones on fish tanks).

I've got a florescent light that's on the same timer as the fish pumps. But that means they're only getting about 1hour a day of light.

Is there a good cycle for light? 12h/12h?

From what i heard a 12/12 light scheme is too much on. Someone was telling me there pinnig stalled untill they changed it to like 4 hours on 20 off and it pinned like a day or two afer. So you should be fine i think maybe a lil more light.

Any amount of light between 1 - 12 hours is fine.

How long does it usually take until pinning begin? So far, over the last 2-3 days, there's been basically no change. Maybe some small hyphal knots have formed, but they haven't developed into anything.

People have told me its dependant on a number of things, rh, temp, strain, moisture/lack there of the cakes, etc...  just an fyi, my friend has some cakes that have been in a growing chamber for a while now (8days) with no growth, as a rule of thumb, (even though im guilty of it as well), is to wait at least two weeks before gettin worried.  Good luck  :wink:

Okay. They're actually casings, but I guess it's the same time schedule.
