how to iniate pinning outdoors?
    #4343433 - 06/27/05 04:20 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

I have an outdoor grow going now with some colonized horse poo cased with potting soil, and covered with a thin layer of straw. I colonized the poo indoors at about 75 degrees. Outdoors here in Southern IL it's about 85 to low 90's during the day, and 70 to 80 at night. I had no way of dropping my temps 10-15 degrees to iniate pinning when i cased the poo. It actually got a little hotter since i moved the grow outdoors. Is there any chance the pins will form just from exposure to light? Or do i absolutely need the 10 degree drop? The only way i can think of is to get some ice and put it on top of the casing. As it melts the cold water will cool the grow for the day. Would this work, or be too cold? Its day 3 or 4 since it was put outside, so i need to cool it down quick if that's what its going to take. I really hope it could just pin and fruit with out the temp. drop.

Im not sure where you got the idea that cold shocking was needed for fruiting, im sure even a few mods think its nonsense ive certainly never done it.

How to initiate pinning outdoors?
1. Water
2. Protect
3. Wait

My patch fruited at the start of the 3rd week. 4 days isnt nearly long enough to be wondering why youre not pinning. I cant tell if your talking about a tray you put outside or an outdoor bed.

you need to do a rain dance :grin: humidity is another one of the triggers.

you should have mixed the straw and poo or layered it and then covered in verm. with outdoor grows there's always an element of uncertainty. You just have to let it do its thing.

You can cover the patch with wet mulch or lightly cover it with a blue tarp to keep the RH up for pinning.

My outdoor patch keeps f%^&in with me.. This morning, I go outside to check it, and there's a full flush of Coprinus on it.. I pick em, and throw 'em away, and this afternoon, there are more pins of what looks like coprinus, though I'm not sure.. I'm praying they grow up to be cubes..

I used fully colonized poo and just transferred it to an outdoor bed. It probably took 3 weeks to see pins for you because im guessing you spawned some sort of grain or cakes to poo, right? I was figuring since mine was already colonized that i might see pins anywhere from 5 to 10 days.

I just used the straw to simply hold moisture in and keep the humidity up. I wasn't trying to use it as nutrients for the mushrooms.

>humidity is another one of the triggers

The three pinning triggers are FAE, light, and temp drop. Humidity isnt one of the triggers. It does enable pinheads to form, but without any of the triggers, humidity alone doesnt do anything, or help to kick in pinning..just make pinning all that much better.
