Coldshocking?
    #1298184 - 02/10/03 10:27 PM (21 years, 2 months ago)

Do Mexicans (not Mexicana) require coldshocking? coz they have been in the terrarium for over 5 days and still don't show any signs of pinning. Temp: 73F Hum: 95-100% using an ultrasonic humidifier (casing feels moist)

Thnx!

I'm having exactly the same problem with mexicans. Out of several casings and 3 cakes, I have had only two pins and one harvested shroom. They have been in there for about 2 weeks. I'm thinking of giving up really, all this time and effort seems like a complete waste of time.
I've also tried coldshocking and dunking and it made no difference.

I took the prints myself ,from a mexican growing kit that flushed at chirstmas.
I've also got some amazonian and GT printsfrom the Free Spore ring.

I think I will just leave the casings alone, the coco coir layer has colonised very well but still no pins. This process seems to take forever!
Good luck with yours, I wouldn't panic just yet cos 5 days isn't that long.

NOOOOOOOOOOOOO, don't give up!!! i just read that it takes anywhere from 1-2 weeks before pins even start.....so patience patience patience. LOL i had to learn that myself cuz i was asking the same thing last night, i was like hey man i just birthed my cakes and want the mushrooms to pin like NOW :smile:

oh and ps....casings will take even longer than that becuase you have that time where the white stuff has to colonize the surface....
