Mazatec Pins
    #510710 - 01/05/02 03:07 AM (15 years, 17 days ago)

Hmm

Well I have birthed 6 jars in a terrarium, with double sided vermiculite on top and bottom, with perlite (which isn't working too swift) and one casing, most of the cakes have started pins on the top and bottom, and the casing has started to pin as well, but they are growing very slowly, almost like they are growing 1/8th of an inch per day.

I keep the temp at 80-85 daily, I open the blinds which should leave enough light to suffice their needs, and I am assuming that I have enough humidity to initiate pinning, why so slow? it's almost like they pin and stop growing, they can't all abort can they? This is pissing me off greatly, any help would be appreciated..

your temp is way to high. lower it about 5-10 degrees farenheit. 80-85 is good for mycelium growth, but not for fruiting. you will see a major improvement after the temp is dropped. try to keep it around 70-75 for fruits.

**** They can't all abort can they? ****

They can... but most likely won't.

Lower your temp to between 75-80. Ya temps are a little high, slowing the process down.

Peace

that does not seem right at all. that looks like a chart representing myellial growth; not fruiting. like stated above; 80 to 85 iss too warm. 73-76 is ideal.

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?

hold on are you saying that fanning can slow your growth, or not fanning can slow your growth?

Fanning and temps will improve the speed, but mazas fruit REAL slow

Do they take a long time to start pinning as well? I've been waiting for mine to start pinning for ages. The casing seems ok, but nothings happening. I"ve cold shocked twice now. In the fridge the micelium looked ok, but when I pot in in the terranium the parts of the mycellium exposed to brown. Too much peroxide in my misting spray, too hot/cold, too high/low hummidity or contamination? What is you opinion?

Mine have started to fruit somewhat gracefully, i have 3 casings, and 4 cakes, and have noticed mazatecs suck at fruiting off cakes, I noticed my casings have massive yields, but the mushrooms are so damn small, the biggest I have had yet was about 5 inches long, the rest are tiny, about 2-3 inches mature.

Is my humidity too low? I have a whole 50 gallon tub full of perlite, maybe I put too much water in the perlite? I never see any condensation on the walls of the terrarium, are my mushrooms dehydrated? Arrrrghh!@%$

There a small strain of cubie but a very nice one make sure to get some prints. Everything sounds allright and they should be larger next flush. You'll enjoy those little guys. Guadalajara's are about the same size another mexi strain thats small. Good though.

In my experience: Three birthed cakes produced one to three huge fruits alone and about 5 abhorts. Out of three 500ml millet casings i got far better yields but no really big babies like off the cakes.
They tend to start pinning very easily in varied humidity but then take the longest ive ever encountered to develop fruits to full maturity. here a little guy for you all:
