Hmm..Pinning starting in casing stage?
    #1496200 - 04/26/03 05:53 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Well..my friend cased about maybe 5 to a week ago. He kept the case in a dark area. he did however take it out every other day or so and open the lid to check for molds or whatnot. Today he looked and there seems to be a pin coming up. Should he put the casing in the terrarium now?

That doesn't sound good at all.

5 weeks?

How deep was the casing layer?

How does the casing look now? Is there mycelium poking up?

I'm sure he meant 5 days to a week...

Yes, this is the result of living in an imperfect world; uneven pinsets.

I'd wait until you see more of the myc comming up before you fruit it. Otherwise, you'll just make your problem worse.

yeah 5 days to a week heh.

he had some mycelliu coming up which he patched..then some more started coming up, but not much, so he decided to leave it alone for a few days to see if more came up, then he'd patch, but not much more really came up. however, this pin is coming up from an area that wasnt even patched..

It sounds like exposing the casing to light so frequently to check for mold caused it to pin early. If there's just one pin on it, pick it off, put the casing back in the dark, and check on it with a red light each day. When you see the mycelium coming up all over the casing, that's the time to start exposing it to full light.

Um....grow it. I get better luck from casings by exposing them to light from day one. If you wait until the mycelium is all over the top of the casing, then what is the use of the casing?? I rarely see mycelium on top of the casings. The pins form below, and pop right on up. The casing layer provides a moist, humid micro environment, that will induce pinning. If it's completely colonized by the myc, it can't do its job.

What's a good system for checking your casing? Should it be done in limited light?

Cool Roger, I'm really glad to hear that. Makes me feel much more confident in my current situation, and I always thought about the casing the same way. Wicked cool.
