100+ pins, 10- shrooms prob....
    #1457847 - 04/14/03 07:42 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

BoNeRz had lots of pins pinning on a casing of verm and 50/50 verm/peat top layer. Some nice tall Creeper mushies would fully grow but only under 10 count. The rest would just abort. Ttakes a long time to pick them out.

What should BoNeRz do to get alteast more than 70% of the pins to grow. BoNeRz know not all will grow. But right now only like 5-10% are growing.

Well naturally most will abhort but try getting more oxygen to it.

Are you using anything to raise the pH of your casing? If not the casing is too acidic so you need to add a buffering agent i.e. limestone flour and oyster shell.

While most claim that the coir/verm casing tek is neutral in pH, Jim has noticed that the pH can vary on the ingredients. Depending on your ends, a pH meter or those crappy gel cap test kits would be a prudent investment, assuming you are having casing/pinning trouble (e.g. pins forming on the side of the substrate or many aborting, etc.).

plenty of oxygen. Might try the oyster shell. Probably limestone flour but really haven't found any stores that would have it or would know.

What is the substrate? If it is BRF then you probably don't have enough nutrients to support all of your pins.

Just because it is a casing doesn't mean it can have enough nutrients.

What is under the 50/50 casing mix?
