60/40 GT pinning (pics added)
    #4062473 - 04/16/05 03:21 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

AFOAF has had a casing in his chamber for a week now, with no visible change in mycelial growth.
Temp: 71-75 degrees
Hum: 95%
Fanning: 3 times a day
Misting: 3 times a day

the casing had been in the fruiting chamber for five days prior, and my friend had tryed to coldshock in by putting it in his fridge for 12 hours. The casing mix is Verm/Coco, and we had read it was prone to overlay, but that doesn't seem to be the case here... So, ten days without pinning, any ideas?

Cold shock again or just keep waiting. They took about 10 days with a cold shock for me (GT's) and 14-16 without.

I would lower rh to about 85, be sure misting is on the sides of the fruiting chamber & not on top the casing (over saturation can happen) & increase air exchange dramaticly, however you can.

Light cycle is what?

Light cycle is 12/12.
I'll try lowering the RH.
I can definately up the air exchange. Running the air pump I have almost instantly drops the RH to 80 and keeps it there, I'll just watch the misting

IT WORKED. Mighty fine pinset I might add. I coldshocked again, dropped the RH to about 80 for a few days, and saw quite a few healthy looking pins 2 days after the shock... Total of 14 days to pin the GT's. I'll have pics soon. Thanks Agar & Scat!
