Inhibition of Primordiation.
    #1708618 - 07/12/03 04:08 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Is it possible to inhibit pin formation by misting a casing too much? When you use Coir/verm you have to mist it about 1 time a day to keep it nice n wet. What I am doing to mist is spraying above the casing and allowing the droplets to land on the casing. Could this be inhibiting pin formation? It seems like all my casing take forever to pin, and this is the only reason I can think of. I noticed that Hyphal knots were forming on the sides of my casing where it doesn't get misted and not on the top of the casing, so that is what led me to think "maybe misting inhibits pin formation."

It's been 12 days on this casing. I know it will pin, with cakes it usually takes about 2-2.5 weeks, but that seems like a long time and I was wondering if there was anything to do to speed that shit up.

i don't think so. if you have healthy well-hydrated substrate and clean moist casing, i think you just set up the 4 parameters of pinning, and add the fifth:

1. some light
2. lots of air exchange
3. high humidity. close to 100%
4. fruiting temps (74-78 for cubensis)






5. time

Yep that's what I have been doing. I guess I just have to wait.

you dont really want humidity to be that high with casings. the casing layer should provide most of the moisture on its own. try dropping the RH down to 87-93%.

From the FAQ:

Primordia Formation:
Relative Humidity: 95-100%


The rH you suggested is more suited to cropping than pinning.

For formation of pins higher humidity seems to be more appropriate, but once pins have formed, having an RH of 95-100% will only result in lots of aborts.
