question on pins
    #4677525 - 09/18/05 02:15 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

i have had my first pin set and they are about 1 in big now, my question is that most of them have white frosting stuff on top of the caps, not fluffy just like dried frosting and the other casing's caps have like dark speckles all over the caps. are these things just normal for a young pin set?

the "frosty stuff" is probly mycelium. means ur humidity is to high. just decrease it a lil and ull be ok

the dark speckles (if im thinking of the same thing as ur talking about) r normal for when they r pins

can u get any pics?

yeah i can get some pics up later but the pins are so small it might be hard to see. i will try and reduce the humidity but i only have a timer that runs for an hour at a time and the ultra sonic is on that. so i have the ultra sonic come on for an hour ever 6 hours

oooo that changes everything lol

casings dont need alot of humidity, only like 70% when cakes need from 80 to 100% (the higher the better with cakes)

k since u said ur not home alot to give it air exchange heres all u gotta do... dont use the humidifier u have, thats to much humidity, just spray the sides of ur terrarium with a spray bottle, and give it air exchange as much as u can (once every 2 hours would be good)

well its a martha setup i was thinking along the lines of cool mist 24/7 and spray the sides down and forget about the ultra sonic until i can get a better timer. do you know what too high of humidity would do?

o a martha setup, lol k that changes things aroudn again. k keep the humidifier on then for an hour, thats probly the perfect amount of time, and use a fan to air it out when u can (a fans probly the only thing that will air it out since its so big). to much humidity might water log it, causing either a contam, or flood it to the point where it wont grow:crazy:

yea it sounds like not enough fresh air...

if u cant get to airing it out during the weekdays, try to have a friend that u trust (with ur life!! dont let just anyone do this) go to ur house and air it out (since they probly wouldnt want to sit there and air it out every hour, tell em to do it like, once every 3 hours)

if u dont have a friend that can do it, i think u can buy somethin that gives it fresh air... h/o ill see if i can find out wut that is
