what do you mean by 12/12 primordia & pin formation??? does that mean the little white dots??? are you saying i should leave the light on for 12 hours a day once i have little white dots??? i just put the cakes in yesterday... how long should it take for the primordia??? should i have any light on at this first point???

and what about the 16 off???? when does that come into play??


thanks for the help i really appreciate it.

I don't know much about cakes, as I don't do them. Little white dots in or on WHAT? An incubating PF jar, or a birthed cake?

Once a cake is birthed.......12 on & 12 off is a pinning trigger that causes myc to form pins. Once you have pins formed & they are looking like tiny shrooms, lower the ON time to 8 hours a day, as it seems mushrooms grow more in the darkness cycle.

A screw in compact low watt floro works well.

But, about any light will work.
So long as it doesnt generate excess heat in the chamber.

agar--never heard about shrooms growing more in the dark. have you experimented enough yourself to prove this??

Ask about it or look into it, and you will find that most everyone growing for a period of time, and has experimented with different setups and lights...that they say the same thing. Theres no proof of it I've seen other then when I give them more light, they dont come up like when I give them less. Thats only after pinning though...for pinning 12 hours of light is better IME. Its more of a widly noticed habit of mushrooms, than a proven fact.

i'm experimenting with (on my 3rd flush) leaving the casing in a state of developing mycelium which i'm noticing is growing into definite primordia, the humidity is as high as it can be (97%), temps at a constant 26*C, and i plan to maintain this state until the whole casing is covered (it's getting there quickly) instead of immediately dropping down humidity slightly to get the myc to pin.. it's been in this state now for 8 days since my dunk and i hope it'll work out well..
any advice?

This has probably been discussed at length long since, but I wonder if there's some genetic memory thing going on in the shroom, after all most species go mad fruiting in the autumn where I am, when you get a sudden drop in temp, a surge in moisture and reduction in daylight down to 12 hours and less (around the autumn equinox). I know not all the shroom strains we're talking about here are from temperate zones but is an interesting correlation all the same.

Shorter days, more moisture & lower temps. That makes sense to me.

Of course. Thats why we give them the pinning triggers we give them. They are pinning triggers.
