Pin question
    #2181925 - 12/16/03 09:58 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have several cakes that have a ton of pins on them. What has happened is the pins formed but they seem to have stalled out.

I have the cakes in a fruiting chamber with perlite. Humidity is about 95 %. I fan 3 to 4 times aday. Temp is around 75 degrees.

Why do the pins just stop and turn into aborts?

Thanks in advance.

Is it possible my humidity is to high?

humidity sounds good, i dont know what it could be, just wait another day and see what happens, if there is a shitload of them on there not all of them will get full size, most will abort, but you should end up with 3-10 good sized ones per cake, at least in all of my experiements

When you get pins is best to drop humidity a bit they will grow nicer. Maybe make some holes in your growroom and stuff them with cotton or polyfill.

You should probably start fanning more often. Try fanning 5 or 6 times, your humidity is probably too high.

That's what i figured. I had no heater in the fruiting chamber and the temp was around 70 degrees. I put a heater and got temps up and that's when the humidity went way up. I think I have too much water in the perlite. I am going to drain some off tonight. Hopefully when I arrive home some of these abort looking things have opened the veil

It's amazing how subtle changes in humidity and temp affect these little mushies. This was my first time and I have certainly learned a lot. Thanks to all of you here at the shroomery.

I always wait till it turns black but always before it mold. I have about 8 or 9 grams of aborts I can't wait to eat them. They are supposed to be more potent.
