Quick question - mycelium/pinning related
    #1545477 - 05/13/03 04:38 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hey guys, my friend Joey Joe Jo Shabadu cased about 5 days ago, with no visible pinning yet. The mycelium has slowly started to grow through the casing layer, and is appearing on top. He'd say about 20% of the top casing layer is covered in it. Will this be a problem, or will shrooms just grow on top of it? Thanks in advance.

well eventually your mycelium will grow into pins.. Here u have a decision to make and this is up to You..


you can

A) recase that 20% for an even pin set.
B) Fuck it and let it be.. Fan regularly to fight contams and regulate the air exchange in there..

Well, I'm not really pressed for time, so should I just let it be, giving it daily lighting and misting as directed previously? I was just worried that if the myc. grew over the casing layer, I wouldn't get shrooms in those areas, but I can't really stop myc. from growing, so eventually it'll cover it up anyways right?

patch that 20% coverage and as soon as you see it pokin up everywhere "else" then take it out of the uncubating stage and fruit!

It depends on your top casing layers thickness i think, IMO if its kinda deep then put it into a terrarium, if its thin let it grow out some more just check on it every couple of days to make sure it doesnt overlay.

Isnt fanning it tho, not leaving it alone? Shouldnt you keep incubating it? Why fan, i mean shit i could be wrong. Also i think cold shocking stops mycel growth, or at least supposedly induces pinning.

DOnt stress unc. didnt see hyphal knots for like 10 days and no pins for like 2weeks, and then all of a sudden youll see them everywhere. Err i mean Joe will

He's not really sure what to do, hearing the different things here...

Allow him to better explain his situation. (sorry, he should have wrote this sooner)

He's using a kit (no flames today please, he will be getting spores from these shrooms to make syringes, and then use one of the teks on this site),

It's a hay/??? mixing for the substrate, so after that was prepared and the mycelium covered the top, Joe added the casing layer of soil + spawn mix and then began giving it light and water.

This should initiate the pinning, and then later it gives picking instructions.

The casing layer, which is about 2-3 inches thick, now has myc. coming up from the top. (he just checked it, starting to come up from soil more)

What would he patch that 20% with?

It's already in a terranium, I guess you can say.

Any ideas/suggestions?

So now that his set up is known, should he just let it be, airing/misting/lighting it as directed before?

He just wants to know if the myc. growing over the casing layer will be a problem. Joe is a patient person, so if they eventually pin, he will be happy.

?????...hopefully u meant soil on top of the colonized spawn mixture,,, the casing layer is suposed to be non-nutritous                                                                            but to try n answer ur question, what ur r trying to due is get the myc to qrowth tru ur casing, from this ur fruits will appear, if u are wishing for the entire to pin at once(which is the recomended &most efficient way) then u should cover ne myc that appears early with a light layer of more casing material(which it sounds like u would have to make ur self,there r countles teks just look) so that the whole thing is grown through at once, once this happens(or if u decide against this and wanna go from where u are)u should lower the temp some and begin fruitng steps                  hope i have been of help to u :cool:

Alright sweet, so he guesses since he's not pressed for time he can just let the myc. grow over, and pick em whenever they're ready. Though you mentioned that the temp should be lowered?
