Dormant Pins?
    #2525169 - 04/04/04 06:52 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

I couldn't find any discussion of this past some references in the teks.

If you have pins that have formed normally but halted (haven't grown past 3mm-5mm) but the caps have not darkened at all, in fact the appearance hasn't changed at all in more than a week of fruiting, are they aborts?

I know what obvious aborts look like, where the cap starts to darken shortly after it stops growing. But these look perfectly healthy, just no growth in the last 5 days. Have they just gone dormant, or should I pick them just to be safe?

Any insight would be appreciated.

It's normal to have dormant pins, like you call em. Chances are that they will start growing again when you will harvest the bigger ones around them. If they still look healthy, keep em.

But when I see those in a casing, I remove them all because I like to recase an harvested layer and don't want to burry small pins that might rot and infect my casing layer. I prefer waiting for new ones!
