My first pin. Exciting and disappointing at the same time.
    #4080255 - 04/21/05 09:46 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Well I woke up this morning to find one small pin out of 3 casings. Does this mean that I caught it early and the rest of the pins are coming very soon? I will be gone for most of the day today and won't be able to fan or mist for at least 6 hours. Should I leave the lids off the containers for the day?

Here is a photo of my 3 casings and the one pin I now have.

First Pin


Casing with the pin.


Different casing.


What do you guys think? I'm excited because I finally have one pin, but disappointed because I only have one pin. I hope my casing looks okay too.

By the looks of your casing, you should be starting to pin already. Wait until you come back home, You'll be happy :-)

Thanks for the replies fellows. And I thought I wasn't going to get any love this morning. You guys rock!

Just FYI, this is the beginning of day 10 in the fruiting chamber. Temps are 74 degrees, 12 hours of indirect sunlight, fanning 4-6 times per day, and lite misting thereafter.

When you come back, have your drying setup ready. I went from pinning through harvesting in 7 days, but your mileage may vary.

look very closely and you may see tons of primordia. often, they are very very small. did you ever notice the mycelium knotting up and forming little twists? These twists are usually where pins come from, and if you look very closely you may see some/tons of very very small pins.

No problem on the jack. I always like to see as much input as possible. I'm looking forward to harvesting ASAP.

When I did bulk I had pins popping up for about a week. I think I had a very uneven substrate and casing layer though.

Well I've been gone for the last 4-5 hours and I just checked on them. There is no change, still just the one pin. Hopefully I'll have some good pinning overnight and can start seeing the fruits of my labor, literally.

You should be seeing a large amount of pins within the next 48 hrs. Don't get disappointed for sure. Just a little more patience, you are almost home hehe.

Okay, this morning I count 5 total. Still not a lot though. Hopefully this weekend will bring many pins. We'll see.

at this stage (where you've got a small hanful of pins poking through) should one continue to mist? i keep hearing some people say "dont mist the pins," or else nothing about it.

Under his instruction, I taped drumsticks to his head and turned him into a sort of mummy, or perhaps a caterpiller in a cocoon. He remains this way for about three hours, making bizarre noises, pretending to be a new species that must learn to walk and talk and eat, etc. And he communicates with other life forms by way of the antennae on his head. Eventually we jam a tube from a waterbong into it's mouth and figure he's learned all he needs to know.

....Do you cut the grass every five mintues :smirk:

in about 4 days you'll be seeing either what you like or dissappointment, Either way Good luck :thumbup:

Hey SS1066

Don't mist Directly on the pins and Myc....It'll help overlay...If you have a fine mister then spray once or maybe twice from a distance....Tiny tiny little blobs of water are ok cuz they'll (should) dissappear w/in hours....But rather large ones aren't good...

I personmally don't spray the casing once it's broken surface.....and for cakes i never spray...

Casing's myc. network does all the work, same w/ cakes, so once it's broken surface, :thumbup:
