Pinhead darkness...
    #4606744 - 09/01/05 01:46 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

How dark can a pinhead be before it's dead? I know black is dead but some of my pins on a cake are getting very dark and I can't really tell if they've aborted. I'd hate to pick them if they could fruit all the way but I wouldn't want to chance it and let them die either. What should I do?

Aborts often have a bluish look to the cap which is the easiest indicator they also have a "tight" look to them IMO kinda knarly in a way. Your next flushes pins will simply look normal and will not develop until the myc has digested enough substrate to gather energy to bolt these pins for your next flush (3-5 days). Remember your initial pinset creates much of your pins for future flushes, not all your pins will develop at the same time! GL
