My foaf heard tell that sometimes the old PF strain got so used to cakes, they just don't do well on bulk substrates. There are always exceptions to that, as some have done well & others NOT.

Sounds like it could also be shock of some sort, temp, rh or related. It's not natural for a whole herd of pins to just up & abort, unless something is kinky -  :frown: - somewhere.

okay, you got pins, so it's something in the environment- what?

too hot, too cold? what are the temps?

My experience with PF says that your lucky you even got the jar of grains to fully colonize much less pin. I think the fault lies in the strain.

you could be right. is it the romero or the amazon origin-ed 'PF Strain'? I've heard mention of people with both, thinking they were 'growing PF'. prints may have got mislabelled etc...  :ooo:

i have no experience with the amazonian romero. the only problem I have run into that consistently produces aborts is improper air exchange. Aborts will occur if humidity falls below a critical level (~90%) even for a little while. I have witnessed this outside.

The humidity could be too low

The casing could have become too dry to support shroom development

You may have too much substrate in too small of a fruiting chamber, and therefore 3 airings or so per day is insufficient.

Low humidity and high carbon dioxide will kill pins.
