Side Pinning, and what to do about it.
    #3267478 - 10/23/04 01:01 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

My casing (rye, 100%coir, Amazonian) has had a few minor setbacks over the course of my (first) grow, and is producing fruits rather unusually. It is no longer producing shrooms in "flushes", now it just sprouts new shrooms every few days. Unfortunately a lot of the mushrooms have side pinned leaving me with a bunch of mushrooms stuck between the side of the casing and the tub. What should I do about this? I'm considering just taking the casing and putting it in a larger tub so I can get at the mushrooms sprouting from the side(like a cake). Will this work, and should I patch case the sides?

I'm gonna take a stab... your temp is between 68-72? Yes? If so, raise the temp to 75-76F after you get a set of pins. You'll see less pins at higher temp.

Good luck!

I just today popped my casings out of their cases for the same reason, flipped the containers over, and put the "flat cake" sitting on top. Keep humidty high and mist, it'll work fine.

cover the sides of the container with something that doesn't admit light (ie black electrical tape)...
not having clear flushes was a common problem for me, now i realize it's all about patching and fruiting casings at the right time, and my flushes are more even...

I just pulled the casing out of it's tray/tub and put it in a larger one. I had to hold it upside down for several minutes while I harvested all the mushrooms on the BOTTOM of the casing. I left all the side pins to grow more. I'm going to cover the new terrarium with something black. For this casing I think I'm just going to treat it like a big fucking cake rolled in coir, and after I harvest the sides I will patch with more coir and maybe some verm. sound good?

I split the mushrooms from the bottom with my friend. I really have no idea how much it was, I'm guessing 20-45 grams fresh. Were they ever potent! Amazing. Best hobby ever. :mushroomgrow:
