My friend have tons and tons of pins on the casing side, but few on the casing. What does he do?

Hey hey, my friend finally has some rye casings that are working out ok. The thing is, they have been in his terrarium for about 6 or 7 days now, other than it being a little bit lower humidity than optimal the conditions are good (he has a vicks coolmist 24/7 for really good air exchange in his 95 gal rubbermaid). The problem is, there are tons of pins on the sides of both of my friends casings, perhaps 30 or so. They haven't really started growing alot yet, but are developing a little they are maybe 2 or 3 days old. There are about 6 pins on one casing and 2 on the other on top, they are both HEAVILY knotted. Should my friend let them sit and have a bumper crop of pins tommorrow, or should he cut the pins off the sides? He has heard its bad to let them stay on as they retard the formation of other pins. But doesn't want to mess with his casing too much.

well most of the pins will find their way up. besides that he needs to soak the casing with a hand sprayer to raise the humidity. Its too dry, get it wet

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.


I need to proofread

Just leave them, theyll be fine, and keep them moist as tahoe said.
