I am not an expert but..

When I cased it took about 10 days to pin. Then I got great yeilds and lots and lots of flushes. So just sit tight for a couple more days. Humidity and temp are fine. If they dont pin you can always sctatch like psilocyber says or put tinfoil over them and cold shock by putting in refrigerator for 10 hours or so

It also depends what strain you are growing...EX: B+ may take up to 2 weeks to pin..while the PFMR may only take 2 days. Gas exchange is one of the most important things to initiate pinning. In nature, the mycelium doesnt fruit INSIDE the cowpie..it waits till it can find the top where there is light (also key for pinning), and oxygen..which tells the mycelium: "TIME TO FRUIT DAMNIT!!"

I'm no expert but isn't a casing supposed to make the humidity?

I've read so much stuff about humidifying the grow chamber, but then I also read posts that say the purpose of casing is to create its own humidity on the surface. Are these shroomirites just talking about the colonization phase? What would happen if I stuck a colonized casing in a grow chamber with hepa air flow, and no humidity? Would that be a bad idea? :smile:

Another question. How do you know if airflow (provided by a fishtank pump) is overwhelming the perlite humidity?

Also, should there always an air out hole? (hepa covered of course) I mean... pumping air into an airtight container - that sounds like a balloon :eek:

So many questions!! :confused:
