Casing pinning only on the sides *Pic*
    #2695356 - 05/18/04 11:13 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)



Hello! The casing above, started pinning, but as you can see (hopefully) the pins appeared only on the sides of the casing.

I know (from the FAQ) that there are 2 possible reasons for this to happen.
1st is that the substrate or terrariums humidity % is too low, which is NOT the problem with this casing.
2nd is the light which penetrates the sides of the casing, and i believe this is the problem here.Altho its not transparent, it seems that the casing has mooved a bit ,revealing the non-cased substrate, causing it to pin.

My question is, if this casing will manage to pin in the middle too, and what (if) i can do something to make it happen.
Also, is this considered to be an overlayed casing layer?It seems that it hasnt lost its water absorbing capabilities.

Thanx for your time. :sad:

I would pull of the side pins,and fill in the gaps around the casing with some extra casing material,or if all else fails some verm.Thats what I do anyway when it starts pulling from the sides.

Will it make a mess if i let these guys mature?
I mean would this affect the rest of the pinning?

it can also be that you misted at a bad time and caused overlay so the only possible fruiting surface area available are what's left on the sides.

Yes but that casing doesnt look overlayed.

The only reason i said pick them is because if you were to fill in the gaps without picking them and they never grew big enough to grow through the new casing material,then they may rot,causing coontam issues.You could just let it go for this flush,then as soon as the flush is over,remove all the aborts and full size shrooms,then fill in the gaps.Or you could just remove the small tiny pins and plug the gaps around the larger ones that you know will develop.
When I have a smaller casing that does this,sometimes I just remove it from the tin all together and treat it as a giant cake.
But usually I just fill the gaps in.

Shroomery FAQ:

Why are there mushrooms only growing from the side of the casing?

This usually happens for 2 reasons:

1. Your terrarium and the casing is likely too dry. That's why the pinhead formation only takes place between the casing container wall and the substrate where humidity is higher.
Rise the humidity to near 100%RH during the pinning stage and lower it to around 90%RH once the pins have reached 3 -4 mm. Also keep the casing moist (NOT wet) during the whole cycle by periodically misting it when it appears too dry.

2. You are using a translucent casing container. This way pins form where the light can get to the substrate.
Use an opaque container to prevent this from happening.

Get solid trays, those aluminum ones flex & twist and then the light creeps down the walls to the substrate. I suggest you get planter tubs, or even use plastic plant pots. Just tape over the drainage holes if you have to.

I am currently having the same problem with a casing and an aluminum pan. About an hour ago I decided to take the thing out and birth it like a big cake since there are so many pins on the side.
