Grandmas Going to Cry. (Help!)
    #443321 - 10/31/01 03:47 PM (22 years, 5 months ago)

My grandmas best friend is having trouble getting her Eq's to pin. Cakes are br. rice fl., verm, and bird seed juice, they colonized 100% in 15 days at 85 deg. They were birthed 22 days ago. The temp is 72-76 in the terr. depending on night or day, Humidity is high. But those little bastards will not pin for her. The cakes are showing more mycelim (sp?) growth but no pins. Could too high a humidity make them not pin??? Its definatly not too low but she thinks it might be too high. There is some standing water on the bottom and condensation on the sides. Any Ideas.??

I noticed pins on the bottom side of my cakes (the side sitting on perlite and receiving the least amount of light) after eight days in a perlite humidified terrarium. I ended up flipping them over sothe old dry verm was on top. Seems to be going well. My shrooms are getting noticaly larger every 12 hours.

Seems to me that every batch of EQ's ive had have always took awhile to pin. The very first time I did this little "project" I thought something was wrong, but just waited it out. Took about 2 weeks to finally pin, but damn, once they got going I couldn't stop them :wink:

Make sure you're fanning a few times a day. And just be patient. Sometimes it takes a little while after birthing before you see pinheads. Also, are you giving them light? You need light to initiate pinning.

Grandma says there getting plenty of light and fanning. Shes just freaken out becouse all her other cakes pinned before 7 days, She'll chill out and wait it out a bit. OH , will high humidity hurt the pinning process?, what is the downside to having too high humididty is it better then too low???

if it still doesn't pin....may I suggest casing...the yield is much greater, and the mushies looks so much nicer...

Afoaf had the same problem with EQ's from TheHawksEye.com

Grandma is about at here wits end she cold shocked them 2 days ago as a last ditch effort, its been 24 days now. She says she is thinking about just throwing them all out, but the cakes are all fuzzy and look like there ready to erupt any day but they've looked like that for 20 days now. You think she should wait some more, any other ideas for her. I think she's going to have a heart attack soon...
