The trick is to not let the casing dry out at all. My friend lightly mists his casings 4-6 times per day until pinning, 1-2 per day thereafter.

oxygen is good for the mycelium when its pinning you want to fan it a couple times a day on top of the misting that dog suggested

do you have the casing already in the fruiting chamber?...get the casing layer moist then put some tinfoil without any holes over the top of the casing and leave it for a few days(usually between 3-7days does the trick) oh and keep it outta the fruiting chamber(if its in there) until your ready to induce pinning
