just make sure temp is 66-75F and they get some light (more the better at this phase) and be patient. the myc growth should halt for a few days before knots/pinds start forming....it can take up to 20 days in some cases so be patient

How long have you been waiting? I hope its at least two weeks because thats often how long it takes. You should try leaving the light on for 12-18 hours a day until the pin. Be sure your fanning lots (3-8 times a day) and the temps are 73-77F. If after 3 weeks you still see no pins..then you should worry. Don't worry about overlay..its very played up and not such a big deal.

what are temperatures/rh levels/lighting schedule? just a few hours a day on light?

i noticed a drastic change in my pinsets when i got a good light source set on a timer. you can built a light on a timer for about $6 at wal*mart if you're in the states. i got a $4 light timer with one on/one off a day, a $1 extension cord, and a one dollar night light. it works great, but i'm planning on upsizing the grow so i'm going to get a flouro set up going.
