A few casing questions
    #4459688 - 07/27/05 12:30 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

i did 3 casings on July 15th. 2 GT's and 1 BHT. the two GT's have both gotten 1 pin each finally. all 3 were cased using vermiculite only. 2 to 2.5 cakes were used for each casing. the top of the GT's very light grey but i wouldn't say it is white. the BHT on the other hand is still lagging behind. there is very little grey matter on the top. they are in a tub and are heated to about 81. shouldn't all 3 be showing more results? what should i do to jumpstart the BHT and are the GT's ready to start growing? any help is greatly appreciated

81 degrees is a bit high for fruiting, you talk as if you are incubating it still.. optimal temps are around 74degrees
Just leave the 3 casing its possible for it to take longer then average 10days to pin.

the difference in pinning time could be a result of it being a different strain.

i know that the mycelium of trich is actually light grey and very wispy. it only turns green after it starts producing spores. It may not be pinning correctly because it could be contam'ed. this same kind of situation happened to me where i thought what was ontop of my casing was myc, the i had a slow, bad pinset and eventually found i was contam'ed. this doesn't mean you are, but i would keep an eye out for the mean green.
