Pinning moisture question
    #525626 - 01/19/02 03:40 PM (15 years, 23 hours ago)

Ok.. my first two pins showed up today... one is on the side.. so I guess that one is a goner.. since I doubt it will make it to the surface.. and the other is on top dead center.. but it has alot of moisture on it.. I barely touched it and I felt water...

Is this bad? Will it rot it?
Should I lower humidity? Because I have a huge problem doing that.. any amount of perlite like instantly shoots me to like 95%-100%

growing from cakes i assume?
why do you think the one growing from the side wont make it? i rarely get shrooms to grow from the top of the cake.
your humidity is fine and water accumulating on the mushroom shouldnt be a problem. you can try lowering RH but doubt it will have a noticeable effect other than the outsides of the shrooms should be drier. any lower than 90 and you reduce growth potential

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

So a little moisture on the pins is ok?

just take all the perlite out. the caseings will provide their own humidity. if not, mist the cakes. or use a small cup of perlite instead of a whole bottom layer.
