A couple more ?'s
    #4583478 - 08/26/05 12:10 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

1. Does drying effect potency? This first batch I dried until it was crumbly.
2. Is it okay to fan when pins are forming, or should I avoid this but fan before and after?
3. How do I know when pins are done forming? Or do I just give it 48 hours, or something?
4. Is it okay to leave my pump on all the time? It pumps air into two bubbler stones. I would like to stick the timer on a flourescent light instead, and I've only got one at this point.

1) No.
2) Yes. - Its ok to fan
3) Harvest when veil breaks, pins will stop forming when cake is spent.
4) I do. Not sure if its safe but i havent had a problem

So when I see the first little mushy pop up, do I need to do anyhing different, or just continue the normal routine of fanning and misting, and leaving the pump on 24/7? I'm using horse dung/vermiculite/perlite cased w/ 50/50, btw, and I'm growing pan cyans.

Just continue along with the routine, might want to lower the humidity just a wee bit though. 

Good luck :smile:

...ooh, cyans?  Well, I really don't know too much about that.  Might want an expert opinion on that matter.

1- yes, drying can affect potency. It's important not to let them get too hot when drying them, and once they're dry they should be stored in an airtight container... exposure to air or sunlight will weaken them...

2- Don't fan until after the pins have formed... co2 buildup is beneficial for pin formation...

3- you know pins are done forming when the pins begin to grow

4- a bubbler really doesn't do much... and you get algae problems when you use one, which leads to bacterial contams... throw the bubbler away... you should keep the light on them all the time, no timer is needed...

Well I use hydrogen peroxide with the bubbler in the bottom of a tub of perlite, but the consensus seems to be that bubblers don't do anything anyway. I'm going to switch to a smaller rubbermaid instead of this 40 gal aquarium and ditch the tubs, just putting the perilte in the bottom - that seemed to work beter anyway.

Two more ?'s
So there air exchange is so little using a bubbler it really doesn't do anything?
And why on earth am I gettig one pin over here, one pin over there, etc., but no full on flush?

Because you're exchanging air while your mushies are pinning... co2 buildup increases pin formation, there should be no air exchange from the time you birth your cakes until your pins start growing... once they start growing, all you need to do is fan some air in once a day, and your babies will have all the fresh air they need
