Mycobag has one big pin....its too early! HELP!
    #1919064 - 09/15/03 07:51 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

My friend's 4 mycobags are about 80% colonized or so, been colonizing for a month now. I looked at it today and saw one big ass pin growing, about 4" long with a dark top.

Should I break open the bags and start casing or what???

Tough call, don't want it to rot but you don't want to open it. 80% is not really enough. I would say tell him to leave it for as long as he can and if that one fruit starts looking ragged you might have to consider removing it.

does the 20% of uncolonized substrate look ok? Is it compacted, overly moist, overly dry. Greasy?

What temps are you incubating at?

Pinning before complete colonization is usually a sign something is wrong with the uncolonized portion, or something is terribly wrong with your spawn run environmental parameters. A month is way to long for any spawn run. You have very old mycelium in the same bag as very young mycelium. That older mycelium really wants to finish up.

What you can do is mix the mycelium around by breaking it up and mixing it evenly. This will help it colonize faster. Just don't crush the mycelium.

I did break it up...I did it often and got great results, and this last time the bags were really hard, and I broke them up into small chunks (I had no choice but to squish some of the myc). There's now more volume of substrate in there because it's not so compacted anymore.

Still have a lot of moisture in the bags. They're on the top shelf of the closet, and it's been pretty hot and humid for the past month. The bags look ok, no contams, no funny stuff. Just that one oddball shroom in one of the bags. It appeared to be growing not out of the substrate, but out of the side of the bag where there was some myc.

Anyway, if stuff is gonna grow, it's gonna happen in the next few days. If I see any more pins, I'm just gonna case it and hope for the best.

This is the first ever grow, so I dont want to fuck it up, and I've already waited a month to get these damn bags colonized.

After closer examination just now, that bag has TWO large pins, not just one. One of the OTHER bags has a large pin also, and another one has one small one. The last one has none.

And these are just the ones I can see. It's hard to see through those bags.

Should I case?

This is kinda urgent and time-sensitive. I need some sort of closure on what to do.

so, bump.

make sure they're in a completly dark place. If its a sterile environment in the bag, which is seems right now because you haven't said that you have contams, then you might as well just let it stay there. Did you plan on fruiting in the bag or taking it out and casing it or try to fruit it like a cake?

I was going to take it out and case it on verm only. It's in a pitch black closet and the light is only on when I gotta get some clothes. And yeah, it's in a grain bag from mycobag.com. B+ strain.

If casing is started, the myc spreads anyway for the first couple weeks since the light won't be on. Then the aborts can be picked out before they rot and ruin my mycobags.

If you don't want invitro, take them out, remove the fruits, and case the colonized portions of the the substrate. Throw out the uncolinized portions.
