Why cant i get pins for a second flush.
    #1322350 - 02/20/03 02:32 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Ive got 8 half pints, a few of which performed awesomely on the first flush, but its been a couple weeks since i harvested, they have not produced any mushrooms or even pins since. What can i do? They are double end cased, should I Dunk and Cold shock?

I would definitely recommend coldshocking them for at least 24 hours. Have you heard of straw tek? It works pretty well. All you have to do is cold shock them then take a plastic straw from wendys or something (preferably a clear straw so you can see the water level) and cut it in half. Sterilize the straws using rubbing alchohol or something. Stick the straws about 1 inch deep in the center of the cakes and fill with sterilized spring water or distilled water. Then place them back into the terrarium. You will notice that the pf cakes suck the water from the straws. Especially when your pins start to mature.

You could also try giving them more light. If that don't help then the substrate probably ran out of nutrients or there is a possible contamination problem.

hydrate them via straw tec or dunking .
lots of fanning and keep humidity up .
imo cold shocking cubes does more harm then good .
em_bre_O, interesting idea pealing them . i hadn't heard of that . do you do this to aid air exchange ?

Well they are Double end cased, and take on average about 6CC's of water per day on top, and are kept at high humdity, with at LEAST 12 hours of flourescent light per day. There is no discoloration, or any sign of contamination.If within 4 or 5 days they dont start performing i may just throw them all into a Coir/verm casing and hope for the best. Thanks for the suggestions thus far.
