A New Start
    #4228157 - 05/27/05 11:09 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I started off my growing experience very positive with very nice flushes a couple of years ago. After getting a dog my future attempts went down the drain. Because of so many failed attempts I got discouraged from growing for about 1 1/2 year. Now im back to try it again. This time im planning to buy pre-steralized grain on the net. I wanted to ask a couple of questions. Have there been any breakthrough techniques developed or it's the same as it was 3 years ago. Also for some technical questions.

1. What should the temperature and humidity be for the substrate while it's colonizing.

2. What's the best way to shock substrate into pinning? I would expose it to light to get it to pin.

3. What is the optimal temperature and humidity for growth when pinning?

Thanks. Diabolic.

Hey, I'm sure things have changed a little in three years. Can't be more specific as I wasn't around three years ago, but have seen things change since I've been here.

As far as temps and humidity while colonizing. That depends on what you are colonizing. Normal subs 80-84 degrees. Poo not as hot as it generates more internal heat than jars. Humidity not really much of an issue while colonizing.

Cubes don't need to be cold shocked, per say, to initiate pinning. A drop of ten degrees should be enough along with light and fresh air.

Temp and humidity for growth when pinning. 70-74 degrees. Humidity can be 95%+ until pinning. Then drop down to between 85%-92% after pins form and fruiting. Good Luck and welcome back.
Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.
