Temp too low for pinning?
    #411179 - 10/02/01 01:26 PM (16 years, 2 months ago)

A FOAF has finally seen some pinning on casing after three weeks. After two weeks of no activity she cold shocked and deep scratched. Finally some pins. Coincidentally, the pins surfaced on the first hot day in a while. She had growing chamber at room temp (no heating source) and for most of those three weeks the temp was between 66 and 70. Was that too low? Yesterday, the ambient temp spiked up as it was a summer like day.

She knows that the ideal temp is supposed to be 74-78 but did not know that a lower temp would inhibit pinning. This does not seem to be discussed. Is that the case?

Different strains react differently to stress. Cold shocking seems to shock most strains, but some it can actually hurt.The humidity may have been too low with the cold shocking and the first summer day increased the humidity and triggered pinning. My friend always uses high humidity and has good results.:)bluhoney

my neighbor's cat observes that temps up to 85 are ideal for cubs. you did not identify the species or strain, so i must presume that the temps listed are documented temps for the species in question.

either that or lbuhoney's suggestion about the humidity. Do you have a guage for humidity? I'd check that first while at the same time try to at least "NOT" let the temp get below 70*F.
