Few questions?
    #4746444 - 10/02/05 09:08 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I read this on a document from fungi fun:

"Some strains don't easily develop pins. In this case put the colonized jar wrapped in a plastic bag in the fridge over night and then proceed to fruiting next day, even if the cake doesn?t show pins yet. This cold shocking usually helps trigger pinning somewhat."


So does that I mean I put them in when they're 100% colonized and just not pinning, or do I put them in when they're like mostly colonized. mine are like 85% and not colonizing much/not pinning.

when should I cold shock them if I do? should I dunk them first before doing it?

Don't coldshock until fully colonized. I wouldn't even bother unless you had a cake that was really reluctant to pinning. They'll be alright just wait.

Wait until they are 100% colonized and then cold shock/dunk them. Search up cold shock/dunking.

Its really really simple and does wonders for your yeild. Once the cakes are done colonizing take them out and find something you can fill up with water and submerge the cakes in. They naturally float so you need to put something on top of them to hold them down. Then you need to put whatever it is in the fridge for 12-24 hours.

The point of this is to rehydrate your cakes, being as 90% of the mushrooms are water. Also the cold signals to the mycelium to start pinning. All in all you will find your mushrooms are bigger and there are more. Its a must.
