Yay pins! and a Question
    #2968225 - 08/05/04 04:03 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

alright, my mycobag finally started pining. I counted around 15 pins so far :o So i was wondering once they grow larger should i cut the top off the mycobag so they have more room to grow out?

Yes, one inch over the substrate. I assume you didn't use a casing layer. You might want to look into using one in the future as it is benefitial in many ways

The shroomery FAQ explains it much better than I can------> http://shroomery.org/index/par/3288

If you wanted, you could add a casing layer after the first flush

you should be adding a little casing to it after the first flush anyways, just to patch it for the next run.

Do a search. There are a billion explanations already, no need for anyone to reexplain all the details. But basically you cover the spawn (bag contents/mycelium) between two layers of non-nutrative substrate like vermiculite or coco coir or a mix of the two which holds extra water for the flushes to use up (thus getting better flushes, than with high humidity alone). Also the casing helps protect against contamination by being non-nutrative, nothing for contams to eat so they won't grow there. And it maximizes your surface area so the flushes can be larger (when measured by square inches).
