what humidity is needed for pins...
    #327576 - 05/28/01 03:24 AM (15 years, 7 months ago)

pins have started to forom...I am confused as to what humidity is needed. TMC states for primordia formation you need 95-100%...for cropping you need 85-92%. How do you distinguish these two. If there are pins, is this considered the cropping phase? So basically my question is what should my humidity level be when there are 20-30 pins.

Also, my casing layer is dry, but there are all of these pins. Should I lightly mist the casing layer? I thought that mist getting on the pins was bad for the mushrooms. Thanks for the help.

If you just keep a steady 92-95% humidity, you will be good as gold...

Cropping phase is the 2-5 day window(depending on strain and conditions)when mushrooms become mature.

Don't mist when there are pins! If you maintain good humidity and fan and mist the sides of the terrarium or coolmist or whatever method you use, you will be just fine...
