my casings are refusing to pin :(
    #2171158 - 12/11/03 03:18 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

i cased some rye grain about a week ago from jars that had been hibernating in the fridge for a couple of weeks. checked on them after 3 days and one was already covered in mycelium in a few spots, so i uncovered it and gave it light to initiate pinning, dropped the thermostat down to 72 or 73ish, and started fanning/misting twice per day. i uncovered my other two casings a couple of days later after a bit of patch casing. another thing i've been doing is opening the miniblinds in my room in the morning when i wake up, taking the lid off of my fruiting chambers, and letting them sit in the indirect sunlight coming through the window for a few minutes. so far nothing has happened...not even primordia as far as i can tell.

i think it might be too humid. i'm fairly sure that i used too much water in the vermiculite casing layer. when i mist the fruiting chambers i mist them so that the inner sides are covered with beads of moisture but not so much that water starts dripping down the sides, which i think is standard procedure, but i've noticed water pooling in the bottom of the fruiting chambers. is this normal or a sign of too much moisture? also if i look really closely at the mycelium growing on the surface of the fastest casing, i can see little beads of moisture on it. lastly, i've noticed that my fruiting chambers are not airtight. one side of the lids always pops up a little bit for some reason. is it necessary to have airtight containers?

any comments/suggestions are appreciated, thanks.

your only problem is a lack of patience.
roll a fat joint,smoke it and chill out.
remember,if you inoculate,they WILL come.
just maybe not on the time frame you had in mind for them.

posting a few picks would help us to put your mind at ease.

>>roll a fat joint,smoke it and chill out.

And if that doesn't put your mind at ease... you will see the humor in the situation regardless. :laugh:

...glad the board seems to be stable - for now...

It's only been a week and to much humidity isn't gonna stop a casing from pinning.
