Casings pinning on side...
    #2866301 - 07/07/04 08:40 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

I know this is a widely discussed topic, but I was wondering what to do in my specific circumstance. I had to deep scratch all 3 of my casings because of overlay (obviously) and I put a thin layer over it and incubated for a couple days. They looked about ready to pin so I began fruiting, and they are pinning well, but mostly on the side (because the moisture level is higher on the sides?) but I misted the layer well (not overwatered) so I'm wondering if there's anything I can do to promote central pinning, or whether maybe the pins haven't made their way through the layer yet. Thanks everybody

ive had that happen to a few containers on their second and third flushes after the casing has already had a chance to shrink. i usually very carefully take the casing out of the container, place on a sheet of foil, and let the side action continue. i usually find a lot of other pins (old and new) on the sides that i pick off or let grow according to health. you can always just put it back in its casing after you harvest..

Use trays that don't flex, see tray on the left. Flex = light leak = they grow on the side of the tray. The other two are flush 3 and 4 (as far as I can recall) in rigid trays.

Convert Metric and Imperial.
