Yea PMP is fine...I always put my casing straight into my PMP after I make it, but make sure you cover it with something like saran wrap until it colonizes, then you can lose the saran wrap and the myc will stop any contams from there on.

If you have a sterile incube chamber you might just want to throw it in there instead until it is colonized

I would disagree covering it and placing it in the PMP doesn't make alot of pinning sense. IME you'll get a much better pinset if you use all pinning triggers at once this would mean incubating at least 2-4 days depending on casing layer thickness (never exceed 1/2" IMO ) and then introducing it to the PMP using all your triggers at once a pinset like this pic courtesy of Amazon Matt :wink:




Or you can just throw it into the PMP covered or uncovered.

I just cover it to keep out contams, then remove the cover after full colonized and begin pinning initiation

Covering also raises co2 to high levels :wink:

Personally, I dont like to have a million small pins all over the surface. You just end up with alot of small shrooms. Because of this, harvesting time is lengthened.

I prefer to have a lesser number of medium or large shrooms that can be harvested quickly and easily.

Remember, there's only so many nutrients in the substrate. Whether its from a few large shrooms, or many smaller ones, you'll usually end up with close the the same dry weight either way.

That's been my experience anyhow. Just wanted to add in my 2 .01's

I fully disagree. I've found the casings that look more like this:



Yeild MUCH more then casings with larger shrooms popping up here and there.



Per quart..tons of pins everywhere grow into medium sized shrooms and are plentiful. If your shrooms turn out small when you have pins everywhere like then then your doing something wrong.
