Will pins turn towards the light after initial pinning?
    #4167352 - 05/12/05 06:33 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I have some EQ going with some horse manure and I cased a week ago. I made the mistake of forgetting to cover my clear container bottoms and some pins have started to form on the sides. I went ahead and taped a double-layer of black trash bags to the side.

My question is will the pins turn towards the light (upwards) now that the light is only going through the top or will they abort?

Thanks for the help people.

how deep are they if there close to the bottom in a deep sub no they will abort and rot.

No, they'll just grow into huge distorted pins smashed against the sides of your container in whichever direction they feel like, until they break surface, are harvested, or just plain rot. Side pinning sucks, it can be quite a pain.

The pins are about 1/4 inch from the bottom of the 1/2-3/4 inch casing layer. My substrate depth on this one is only 2 inches. Hopefully they won't be too big of a pain.

Nothing wrong with side pinning IME

Hey, that looks pretty good Scatman. Did some of those pin from the side and make there way up? Some of my pins are actually pointing in different directions. That's why I'm so paranoid.

By the way Scatman, I hope you're right on the horse manure story. I want these EQ's to kick my ass. I mean full on visual and heavy body high. My straight cased B+ shrooms were really disappointing. I actually gave away 2 ounces they were so bad.

I want the full on treatment, not some mild body high.

All of them pinned from the side and made their way up. And I have also had mushrooms with a light to the side, leaning one way, then turned the casing around (so they're growing away from the light), and the mushrooms (fully matured already even), moved BACK leaning towards the light again. Just like plants, they'll turn to the light. The reason side pinning doesnt always do that, is because sometimes theres still not enough light to make them bend up enough.

I believe you'll be happy with the potency, but I would be interested in hearing back when you finally test them :smile:

Consider the potency report done. Thanks for the words Scatman.
