Stupid casing q
    #331012 - 05/31/01 09:25 PM (15 years, 11 months ago)

I haven't seen this answered anywhere else... How does the mycelium know when to start pinning if it's cased and light can't get to it? Just wondering. I may sound incredibly stupid, but I've never cultivated before.

I think the mycellium needs some kind of "trigger" like cold, light, etc. to know when to start pinnng.

your right, it does sound incredibly stupid :wink:  j/k.  The mycelium will grow up into the casing and colonize the surface of the casing before it starts to pin.  It only very rarely will pin before it reaches the surface, I dont know why it does this, but I think it has to do with a new layer of wet material, and that it is receiving fresh air, or maybe some light penetrates the casing.  But most of the time it will just colonize the casing first.

I see. Thanks. I'm a complete beginner. I want to get everything in order before I start.

Best triggers:

1.Loss of humidity

2.Sporatic low levels of o2(yea i said oxygen......)

3.Time

light is one of the triggers, including temperature drops, and air exchange. when the mycelium grows through the casing layer, and finally hits the surface (when light is either "waiting" or just being introduced), the mycelium "knows" it is time to begin pinning.

Oh c'mon peoples, think about it..... what a casing does is 'mimick nature', in nature the mycelium grows under the ground.... under the ground there is no LIGHT no AIR (cept a little) and the TEMP is steady. When the mycel finnally hits the surface, 3 things happen... It can NOW breathe, it NOW sees light for the first time, and the TEMPERATURE changes... all this happens at once, this tells the mycelium that its now time to grow a dick (or 2), blow a load of spores and reproduce. That is why we incubate a casing in the dark, at a slightly higher temperature, with very little air exchange (but some),  then, to initiate pinning at the right time.... we REMOVE those three things from it.  Thats when it knows that its time to get a wood. 

:smile::):)

No?
