When should I lower humidity during pinning?
    #3968980 - 03/25/05 03:41 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hello,

I have a tray that has started pinning nicely. The largest pins are about not quite 1cm in length. So, should I wait till they get bigger to drop the humidity? Or can I do it now? Of course, many pins are still quite small. This is my first time!

If it's pinning nicely, don't change anything. There is no need to drop humidity. Never try to fix what isn't broken.

Well, I am just following Stamet's directions.

He suggests that the humidity should be lowered from 95% during pinning, to 85-92% and states that it is critical for proper mushroom development.

It seems like they are pinning slowly. I have seen the pins develop for three days now, shouldn't they kinda grow real fast at this point?

I think thats supposed to be before pinning, to slow myc growth and help induce transfer to generative mode.

Once pins are short and fat they usually take off pretty quick from there, some strains can be slower.
