Question about when to start pinning...
    #4154194 - 05/09/05 06:46 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hey Shroomery,

This is probably my last grow and I want this one to count. I have a total of 11 jars, 10 B+ and 1 PESA, I'm casing 6 cakes, 3 casings (2 cakes per casing). My girlfriend is growing 5 cakes.. All cakes will be dunked 12-15 hours. And I was wondering when to start pinning. At the right time...*please don't give me Hypea's strategy for pinning read it and it's little hard to understand*

This is from my previous grow:


Do I want to let the myc. take over that much? Or should I start it a little earlier than that?

Check my Shroomery PESA Strain Gallery

Like this:


Also, I was wondering, when I crumble the cakes should I try to get the cakes level as possible. FYI: I'm doing 2 crumbled and 1 whole, see how the results the come out.

The casing layer is 50/50 (peat, verm). I should cover of the casings for about 1-2 days, when I go to un cover it, should I patch the first patches on myc I see?

Sorry for all the question, if you only know some of them feel free to answer some! Thanks guys!!

Thanks,
Cray
:peace:

After complete colonization then you case. when you see the myc just starting to show, patch any really agressive areas and then put right into fruit. crumbling cakes should be done evenly as possible to get an even colonization. leaving them whole can result in faster colonization according to some. you try and decide for yourself.

dont let it grow thru that much as soon as you see any signs of mycel on the surface start fruiting and make sure your sub to casing is right what you are going to do as far as sub depth and casing you have not said but the mycel will still eat  thru the casings days after you start fruiting, so keep that in mind,as soon as i see any signs of mycel at the surface i fruit but make sure your casing is correct...... :thumbup:

when you see the mycelium in the VALLEYS of the casing, then initiate pinning. do not let it overtake the entire surface. in the VALLEYS... lower temps, bring in fresh air, and keep humidity high. when pins form, lower humidity.

This might be a dump question but... how do you lower humidity? Take all or some of the perlite out?

In a TIT or TUB with perlite in the bottom, you increase fresh air exchange, which carries humidity away with it.
