too much humidity for pinning ?
    #2426884 - 03/13/04 11:24 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Hello so my friend of a etc... has got these two small trays of cased grain of psylo cubensis "mexican" (origin amsterdam) with 60/40 buffered with CACO2 they have been there 11 days in the terrarium humidified with perlite and not a single hyphal knot to be seen. Is it due to the strain (not selected in agar culture) or could it be too much humidity : my friend's hygrometer is mesuring 97 rh for 25 degrees celsius but the walls of the terrarium are full of fine mist slightly dripping so maybe it's really 100 % ? what do you think ? Is it possible that such a level of humidity would inhibit the formation of hyphal knots and therefore pinheads or is it just strain related (mycelium wrongly selected or not selected or too old,etc...) thanks for any help ! My friend will try to borrow a digital camera to take pictures and send them tomorrow

that's not too much humidity, I've got pins right now, and my humidity is 99% all the time. Highest humidity is desirable for pinning, after they pin you may want to lower it. has the mycelium grown through the casing layer? Cause if it hasn't after 11 days I'd take it out and check for contams. Is your casing layer dry possibly? Or if the mycelium is growing through the casing, you may have overlay if the mycelium growing through dried out. In which case I've had great success with scratching and dunking. Some pics would help. But if you don't have any mycelium growing through your casing its time to start contams.
