1. yes, I did this when my casings failed to start pinning. Just put in the frig (covered of course) for 24 hrs.

2. whenever they're failing to pin, either the first pinning or between flushes

3. 24 hours

4. I wouldn't unless I needed to, but that's just IMO

5. ??


There's no such thing as a stupid question,
but they're the easiest to answer!

Most of the people say they do not have any problem without cold shocking... However, i failed a couple of times with some certain strains (especially GT and OI) without chold shocking.... Check for yourself and make your decesion..... :smile:


The word truth...... doesn't make any sense..... As if the word sense...... which isn't the truth.........

1.) hundreds, its very effective as an alternative.

2.) When your species is neglecting to fruit in a proper timely manner.

3.) 24hrs

4.) Generally when the mycelium has stopped vegitative growth and has started fruiting, given you have introduced proper growth conditions, it should keep poppin out shrooms until the end.

5.) If you mean "how long after harvesting a certian flush is it optimal to cold shock it again?" Id say, never. Coldshock once.

Psilocybe Cubensis is a very user-friendly species. Instead of worrying about cold shocking, make sure your terranium is easy to control and manage accurately as possible.

I dont do drugs, I just smoke chronic.
