PR Pins, Loads of em, PROBLEM ;(
    #1249731 - 01/26/03 09:21 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

My friends aunts moms nieces sister has some PR's cased Shroom Wizard style with some peat/soil on them. First attempt at casing and so far its been incredible. if only 50% of the pins grow its gonna be an amazing flush from all 6 trays. So far no troubles with the PR's untill now. only I dont know if the problem is the casing or the PR's since she never cased before. Anyhow, the problem is this... about the 20th there were pins by the hundreds, 22nd pins a little bigger, 24th pins a little bigger, now on the 26th and guess what? pins just a little bigger. no mistake they ARE growing, but wow this is slow, when a pin is on a cake usually just 2-3 days and its huge. Whats wrong with this casing? maybe nothing? just need to be patient? Pins are all over the surface and are about half inch-1inch tall , they are not on the edges only so thats good, hmm humidity is at 90-100, fanned 3 times a day or more, casing looks a bit dry and is pulling away from edges so its being watered with a syringe around the edges. Any help would be great!

Ya I understand casing dont require as much humidity, actualy the guage just says "HI" so hard to tell, but I find it hard to think its too humid when the casing dries so quickly.. dunno im just a newb though, would high humid stunt growth of pins? think these babys are gonna grow or are these just trays full of aborts?

Perlite only Humidification by the way, in a rubbermaid container with a screened top

Condensation is pretty much non-existant with the screened top, temp stayes between 72-79 farenheight. If I were to guess the problem on my own it would be the casing is too dry, they are in small foil loaf pans, one cake per casing, so they gonna dry out faster. its really got me stumped though, I am new to casing though. Some guys says keep it slightly moist all the time, faq says watering after pinning is ok, but growers seem to disagree, I wish I knew how much water they were getting, too much or too little

sounds like too little . i think i would cover that screened top at least part way .
where you have casing pulling away from the container, drop in some moist verm .
maybe ad a bubber . are you fanning ?
