another newb casing question
    #2453951 - 03/20/04 12:27 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

About 20 minutes ago my friend's friend checked his casing and noticed that the pins had grown slightly, but not very much in the length of a day. They are very thoroughly pale, but he doesn't think it's mycelium or bacterial growth that's causing it.. perhaps it's the strain/species. (he's never worked with these, he's only used to plain ol' B+)

The temperature is around 80?, probably a little bit less, 78 or so.. and the humidity is hard to tell. He has no way of measuring, and he sprays a bit of water into the terrarium (against a sheet on the lid of the casing, as to not directly spray it) every day. Fanning is done as often as possible.. usually once or twice a day. Yesterday, however, he was unable to tend to them at all due to circumstances beyond his control.


Is the paleness of the pins something he should worry about? Any ideas how to speed up their growth?


Thanks guys.. any help is very appreciated.

your fine..

just let them grow out...

sometimes they will stall(abhorts),

and sometimes they will stall for a few days then grow leaps and bounds on the next day.

Thanks guys! I'll let you know how it turns out.. hopefully Hevvy will get back before they're finished, so we can photograph it all and show you.
