My Casings - Questions and Concerns (pics)
    #1448279 - 04/11/03 12:06 AM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Hey guys,

I cased my biggest spawn dish on the 2nd of april, it is now the 10th and i see no definate sign of pinning. Am i being too impatient? When I cased the spawn the casing was quite moist, its only about half an inch at most and mycelium are all over the top of it. I've exposed it to fruiting conditions for about 3 days now and I see really nothing..... Little while balls of mycelium on the outer surface but they seem too abundant to be pins. If you were to put a ratio of visible mycelium to 50/50, id say 65/35.

The mycelium doesnt seem like its too fluffy, and i can see lil tiny tiny beads of moisture in the inner valleys caught in the mycelium webbing. The mycelium does seem alittle matted to the quick observation. When i touch it with a sterile finger I notice it doesnt seem too matted nor does it seem dry at all.

I lowered the temp from 83 to 70 for about 14 hours when i first expose it to fruiting conditions. Its now around 75 degrees with a high humity and gets about 10 hours of light a day.

The strain is Treasure Coast, i've heard i should be concerned if i didnt see any pins within the first 10 days, the 10 day mark is nearly here.

my three little casings, all spawned with dung, then cased with 1/2-3/4inch jiffy mix

Condensation on the top of my terrarium

whats that? =X



Should i be worrying at all? What should be some methods/precautions I should be taking to induce pinning? I plan on waiting a few more days then trying to cold shock it. Does it sound like overlay?

I've never grown before, never saw the process, concerned ;\

ty for any help,

Do those little white balls of mycelium look like this at all? If so your good to go.

Yo... Check it!

The humidity may be to high in your terrarium. It should be at about 86% humidity when you are casing. How are you preventing condensation from dorpping onto your casing layer? You need to do this to prevent the moisture ratio from being too high. It's not a good idea to let the condinsation drip into your casing. That is a sure way to introduce unwanted contamination.

I hope this helps... Peace out!

My friend just finished fruiting TC on birdseed cased with coir/verm. He says that his casing was almost totally covered and looked as you described before it finally pinned. He says your casing is ok.  :laugh:
