mycobag not pinning
    #1324646 - 02/21/03 12:25 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

hello.  i posted several days ago in regards to my nearly completely colonized mycobag (of tc spores).  after reading people's responses, i decided to put the bag in the freezer for about 8 hours and then give it the proper temperature and light conditions for pinning.  someone said i would proabably see primordia pins in 2 - 5 days.  it has been 4 days and the bag is in ideal conditions, and i am not seeing any signs of anything.  i had said how the bottom of the substrate hadn't colonized, but since the rest was, it was ready to pin.  over the past days, all i am seeing is more mycelium spread SLOWLY to the bottom of the substrate even though the temperature is set for pinning and not colonizing.  am i not ready to pin (it is at least 90% colonized!)?  should i rip open the bag and set it in a terrarium and mist daily?  should i just give it more time?  i have a hard time seeing into the bag, so it makes it difficult to spot primordia pins; plus, i am not entirely sure of their appearance.  there are no contams, although i have noticed very slight bluing where i have handled the bag (this is just bruising though, no contams :smile:).  any input and/or suggestions would be gratefully appreciated!  thank all of you for you help.  peace.

I would give them light 24/7 and try to keep them at 76 degrees.


Everything I write is a total work of fiction

Make sure it is humid enough...they tell you with those bags that if it is in a dry place that you should move it to somewhere moister

well, i am in a dry wintry climate. there are a few tiny tiny water droplets on the inside, but i am sure it could handle a little more moisture. do you think i should open the top of the bag and mist into it? should i just take the substrate out completely and put it in a terrarium and mist it that way? thanks
