Splitting stems and caps turning gray still...fucking god
    #4490659 - 08/03/05 05:47 PM (17 years, 12 days ago)

What is this shit? My pins start out fine (at least 90% of them) but upon maturing, the caps start to turn gray and some of the stems are getting large splits in them to where I can see inside the fruit. The casing seems moist enough so I don't think it's a problem with them drying out. It's also being fanned a minimum of 3 times a day. What is this shit? Any professional heard of this before?

Splitting caps & stems is most often a sign of VERY LOW RH. Or, sudden exposure to VERY DRY AIR.

Thanks, the casing seems moist enough underneath (I stuck my finger down about half an inch deep) but I'll go ahead and mist lightly from above.

I scrubbed my hands with antibacterial soap before testing it out but I can still see how this may not be the mos sterile thing to do  :yesnod:

Ok, i don't think you are understanding agar.

Casing moisture !=(not equal) RH in the air.

Agar is telling you that the RH in the AIR is LOW. Raise the RH. He is not telling you to mist your casing.

Well I wanted to avoid it but I'm going to go ahead and put some perlite in the tub I guess. Thanks Liquid

I hope this also solves the problem of the caps turning gray / aborting early.
