Pop Quiz Hot Shot... what do you do... what do you do???
    #1332578 - 02/24/03 07:54 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Your casing is colonized just about right, and so you put it in pinning conditions. A few days later you find that there are 3-5 big pins coming up... but that's all you notice. Another day or so goes by and these pins are growing, and but now you notice there are tons of little hymphal knots turning into nice pins everywhere...

Do you...

A) Let these 4 pins mature to full mushies (in this case it seems that all pins that appear a day and 1/2 before the first pins mature will abort, do others notice this too?)

or...

B) Pick these 4 big pins/shroomies (i'm thinking the idea is to pick all stray pins that come up before the others... so when the whole surface shows signs of pins they can all grow to maturity TOGETHER resulting in a nice harvest... is this how they grow?)

Both of these examples we'll just assume the growing enviroment is ideal!

What do I do... A or B?

Peace

Heres what you should do!

Next time, dont get yourself into said hypothetical situation.  Use a strain with little variation or even better, an isolate.  Be sure to patch TWICE to ensure an even pinset.  Cold shock before you initiate pinning.  With proper environmental factors and the right strain, you should have a surface full of pins in a few days.

How about this, pick all of the pins, and let the 4 shrooms get all of the energy for this flush.  And next flush, do it the way I said above.  :wink:

I used the creeper strain.

How can you patch TWICE after your first flush... the mycelium doesn't colonize the casing layer any further after it's already begun the pinning stage!  Plus it seems picking all of the little pins would be a hassle, take a while which in turn would allow more contams to set in!

Man, I was so discouraged about this casing attempt that I'm thinking I'm just gonna pin all of my next poo spawnings straight off the fuckin' poo!  Fuck it!

Casings can be something of a bitch with uneven pinsets. My neighbors lizard usually get pretty even pinsets in the second flush. The lizard is still a n00b tough.

I was kind of joking about picking all of the little pins, It would be more hassle than it's worth. Just let this flush mature. What dude does between flushes is deep scratch and apply a new casing layer. Usually the first flush is the best though, IME or actually, maybe I should say that the first flush has the potential to have a better pinset than others.

So long as you put the casing back under incubation temps, it should go into vegetative again and you can patch once for the second flush. Usually second flushes don't have as good pinsets as the first. If you do the first right, scratch and pick out any aborts, and reapply an even casing layer, then the second flush IME produces fewer fruits, but they get larger than those of the first flush. This is why dude often doesn't worry so much about exactness on post first flushes. In fact, sometimes the tray doesn't want to go back into vegetative and a few days after reapplying casing the casing has shrooms growing from it upon checking. So he just puts it back into the fruiting chamber.

Cool... I didn't even know that you can put it back into vegatative state. I will try this!!
