pinning? cased rye and pf jars
    #473906 - 11/29/01 07:51 PM (15 years, 13 days ago)

A friend has some fully colonized pf tek cakes and some rye cased with alfalfa and potting soil. They are pf, pf hawaiian, and pf mazatec varieties. They all have been sitting individually in consistantly humid (can see condensation)three gallon containers with filtered holes for air exchange for about 6 days and they are not seeing any pinning. Can any of you enlighten me with an effective technique to produce quick pinning? Would (cold shock) putting them in my refrigerator for a few hours work? Right now they are sitting in a seperate room with a temperature of ~62 - 70 degrees F. Thanks in advance for any replies.

cold shock those guys, i know for sure the pf need to be cold shocked. put in fridge overnight, make sure they stay clean.
then make sure to fan them twice a fan until pinning starts.

hope this helps and best of luck.

Thanks for the help. They'll be placed in the fridge tonight. Another question: what factors actually initiate pinning? I have heard many different things: that the mycelium finally absorbs enough nutrition to initiate pinning, that the mycelium has begun to run out of nutrition, and also about the cold-shock. This is the third try to produce shrooms, the first time was straight pf (no cold-shock, in fact nothing special) with good results, the second time no special teks either but this time my cakes got infested with pink mold and fruit flies! (obviously not sterile enough) Anyway thanks for the helpful information.
