Trouble With Pinset
    #4192816 - 05/18/05 10:10 PM (13 years, 9 days ago)

I uses 4 Jars PF Tek and cased them with 25/75 perlite/vermiculite on the bottom and strictly vermiculite on the top. They have been in the casing for about 8 days and more and more fuzzy white mycellium keeps coming but no pins. Due to security I have just been giving them 2-4 hours of floro light for the last 4 or 5 days and they are covered in saran wrap during this time. While they are not under light they still have a saran wrap cover then the rubbermade container cover on top of that and they are stored in a larger rubbermade with no light. I have been fanning 2 or 3 times a day and spraying about once a day. Anything else I can be doing to speed up the pin set or just let them keep going? If I can I will get a picture up of their current state in a little bit.

Oh yeah this is my first post, so I should say HI!

I think air exchange will help it pin.

and lower temps.

well 2-4 hours a day seems kind of low for activating pins. You want to try to re simulate the natural environment they grow in. If you can, add longer light duration. Try cold shocking if it doesn't start to pin a in a couple day. The mycelium should stop growing when its about to pin. Give it more time.

Thanks for the quick replies. I guess I am just pretty damn anxious being that this is my first time attempting this. Not just casings, first time with any growing of any type.
