uneven pinset?
    #1344634 - 03/01/03 10:09 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

so my buddy's cake has been pinning and he told me that some of the pins are about an inch long and then some of them are still a few millimeters. obviously, there are all lengths in between as well. so, would this mean that he is having an uneven pinset? and if so, is this a bad thing? how should he go about harvesting?

I belive even n uneven pin sets refers to casings n bluk substrates and not really to cakes.

what i mean is that the pins are not all going to mature at the same time. i heard you are supposed to harvest all at once. if this is the case, there would be a bunch of not-mature mushrooms that would be harvested. is that what one is supposed to do, or should he harvest over the period of days (as each matures individually)?

Harvest them as they mature.

Harvest as they mature.. but try to harvest the whole thing within 3 or 4 days. You need to clear the casing for the next flush so it has time to absorb water and such.

what exactly do you mean by clearing the casing? i am unsure about this. is it just cleaning the area where the mushrooms was pulled - the substrate gets disturbed from the harvesting?

He meant that uneven pinsets usually don't matter that much when it comes to cakes. 

Casings, on the other hand, are a different matterr and you don't need to worry about that in your case :smile:
Just clear them out over a short span of time (perhaps the most mature shrooms will be a little past prime maturity, but that will give the least mature ones to get a little bigger, then you pick them all within that few-day-timespan.

Just harvest as you go, keeping them in the fridge if they are only a couple days off. If longer then, i'd say harvest and dry as you go. has you pick the fruits off, replace the harvest sites with casing material and lightly mist. Uneven pinsets aren't that bad of a thing.

Oh it's a cake..nevermind I thought you were doing a casing. I haven't done cakes in years but I don't think it matters at all if it's an uneven pinset.

You don't need to repair the cake. However, if you have vermiculite, you have casing material.
