Cold Shocking casings ??
    #3309485 - 11/02/04 04:12 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

i know questions like mine have been asked but mine has some specifics so please dont just tell me to search

okay well i have had my casing in the fruiting chamber for about 3 days the first day i had a higher temp to build mycelium (78-81 degrees) now for 2 days it has been between 70-74 degrees yet i have no pins or knots that i can see i cant check RH cause i dont have a hygrometer
my set up is a 25 gallon rubber maid holes cut in the top and covered with plastic to allow light though large grow light mounted about the container 1.5 inches or perlite in the bottome of the container and .5-.75 inches of water in the bottom as well i fan and mist 3-5 times a day i mist with a h20/h202 solution in super fine mist i have already patched my casing and have a super even mycelium level

so what i was wondering is can i still cold shock this casing or should i keep continuing to hae it where it is and just wait?

Also i was wondering if there is a difference in yeilds between cold shocking it and fruiting in more natural conditons? ( because if there is i am in no hurry to have these shrooms if waiting will provide higher yeilds)

thanks
-mike

patience... pins can take up to 2 weeks to form. After your first harvest put some peroxide and sumerge casing in water in fridge for 12 hours or so then put some mroe casing material and fruit it again.

Then why are you posting as if its a problem if it hasn't been two weeks. YOu just said you know it can take up to two weeks. It can actually take more with some strains too. Chill out. You'll see them in time.
