Pinning slow to nonexistent
    #1748647 - 07/25/03 05:09 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Howdy,
I am using the standard PF Tek method. I have fully colonized jars but no pins! I have used this method before and have had pinning either shortly after or even during the final stage of colonization. Perhaps there is too much moisture? Not enough oxygen?

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Gracias,
J

I used a strain I got from PFTek some time ago.. I believe they claimed it as their own.. Anyway, I think you're right; I'll go ahead and give birth and throw 'em in the chamber.

Thanks again,
J

The main factors that lead to pinning (in no particular order):
1. Lowering CO2 levels - accomplished by frequent fanning and air exchange in the terrarium.  A 30 second fanning 3x a day works nice

2. Humidity - Humidity must be over 95% for cakes.  Mist them gently

3.  Light - Light is introduced on the cakes.  Their are specific lights that may isolate the spectrum a bit betterthan others, but anything will work.

4. Temperature - The temps must be kept between 70 - 75 degrees Farenheit.

5. PATIENCE - Sometimes it just takes a few weeks for pins to occur.  If no contams are visible, and you are dealing with every aspect mentioned above to a satisfactory status, you'll get pins :smile:

Happy Shrooming
