pins not growing??
    #2185315 - 12/17/03 03:10 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

quick question.. this is my first grow and im a little worried about one of my casings. its an EQ 3 1/2 pint casing. On sunday(12/14) i noticed my first pins. Today(12/17) i looked and realized that those pins have barely grown at all, maybe a few millimeters. Conditions are optimal to my best ability. Temp reads between 70-74 and RH is at 99%. Everything that i have read says that the pins grow VERY fast and by now they should have at least reached an inch or so.. what could be the problem?? or should i just have more patience. thanks

I noticed my pins grew slow at first also. They should speed up, dont worry about it. Mine took about 4 days from pin stage to be complete.

i have also noticed some black streaks on some of my tiny pins.. does this mean my RH is to high??

I'm not sure about that one.... Also, about the slow growth, try to fan more often, I noticed it helped.

im fanning about 5 times a day.. im just wondering how long do i wait before i know for sure that they are all aborts..

it just seems weird that not one pin has grown over an inch in 3 days.

I would drop the RH a little and keep the temp closer to 75. It would be what i'd try first because if it were any more humid in there it would be raining or water would be collecting on the mushrooms and that causes rot. Just try to make it as close to a natural setting as possible but about 4 days sounds right from pin to shroom

SWIM has the same issue with slow maturing fruit I start with say 100 pins on monday and now by thursday they are only about 1 cm tall but there are now 500 of them.

SWIM hopes they quit working on multiplying and start thinking about getting big.
