first grow... pinning questions
    #4025583 - 04/07/05 11:51 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

ok i have a few questions about pinning.

What i got: 6 brf cakes (4 of them dunk n' rolled)

It has been almost five days now and I can't tell if they are pinning yet.

1) some fluffy mycelium is beggining to grow over the vermiculite on the ones i rolled. Does the fluff have to cover the whole cake before pinning?

2) for lighting, i try to put it in sunlight for an hour or two each day, followed by 10 hours of using my desk lamp. Will a desk lamp work fine?

3) at night, the temperature rises from 75 to 80 in the terrarium. What effects will this have on the pinning?

Please post any pictures you have of pinning cakes, especially ones dunk n' rolled.

i think if it hits 80 then that might delay the pinning a day or two

1.  That fluffy mycelium will knot up and become primordia/pins.  It doesn't have to cover the whole cake like this before primordia formation starts.  Also, what strain?

2.  The desk lamp is fine by itself.  Depending on how you're getting the sunlight to them, it might be more harm then help.  You could be introducing contams this way.  How are you getting the sunlight to your cakes?

3.  80F should be fine, but it may slow growth slightly.  Not something I'd worry about though, as it won't kill your cakes.

use indirect sunlight what ever you see they see meaning mother nature rules and it took my b+ on cakes 7 days till they pinned,try to keep the temps in the mid 70's as if the temp gets higher the shrooms will grow faster but you wont be forming alot of pins good luck bro,and fan aleast 3 times a day it can be done i work 10 hours a day and still get ur done lol
