Black pins on my casing, maybe aborts?
    #3036483 - 08/22/04 04:22 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Alright. Half my pins are brown and look healthy, half are black. They havn't grown in 3 days, so I am thinking they are aborts. What do you guys think? If they are aborts, I know I need to pick them off, but could someone eat them and feel anything?

yes those look like aborts and as long as you don't leave them unpicked for too long (they will rot) they are good to eat.

What is the main cause of aborts? CO2? Humidity?

Aborts are caused by several things excessive co2, overly saturated casings, dry casings, too cool a temp will stall shrooms also as well as not enough FAE (fanning) and high RH. You are a lucky bastid all them aborts all to yourself! Geesh I would love to have some aborts right now :wink: Pick them as they shouldn't get any bigger or wait a day and see if any get bigger if they do leave them to mature. I'd say aborts or should I say beautiful aborts!!! The first pic is all ya need the other three are just blurry bandwidth users. GL bro

>>What is the main cause of aborts?

Some strains produce so many pins that it is impossible for the mycelium to let them all develop into maturity. Some grow, some abort. This happens even under optimal conditions.

Poor growing conditions may indeed also lead to pinheads aborting growth. If all pins abort something is definately wrong. The pics are a bit blurry but that casing does look very dry...
