Pinning and humidity
    #566991 - 03/01/02 04:32 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, I have a sweet looking casing thats nice and even, I moved it to my fruiting chamber thats lower in humidity and warmer. Question is, sometimes the Rh fluctuates, and I was wondering if the humidity was 93ish for a while they would be ok? And another question, If I cant control the humidity over night very well, are the mushies more forgiving if the Rh is too high (95%) rather than too low like 75%?

A slight fluxuation will not hurt them.

What do you mean by warmer? You're chamber should be cooler than your incubator, around 72 degrees.

For the pinning phase you will want your humidity to stay up in the 90s, rather than in the 70s. When mushrooms start forming, around an inch or so in height, you should drop the humidity to around 85%, the 75% shouldnt hurt them during that time.

Hi Angry, warmer as in 76degrees..but the pins arent even pea sized yet, should I stick the casing back in the chamber thats 95%rH and 70degrees?

Hmmm...well you got two chambers?

Well the temps should stay the same throughout the entire process. The only thing that really needs to change is the humidity. The lower temps slow down the vegetative growth, and tells the mycelium to start producing fruits. Lower temps also create a less chance for overlay, because it doesnt colonize as fast.

You really should just leave them alone...For now, just try to keep them under a steady envoirment. Temps in the low 70s, and humidity in the mid 90s, and you should be OK for now.

What strain are you using, depending on colonization speeds, you can fluxuate your conditions for a better fruiting envoirnment.

Remember overlay occurs when the casing surface is too dry, the humidity is too low, or the air temperature remains too high.

yeah, I decided to make a seperate chamber for fruiting, one with lower rH and slightly higher temps for the fruits to enjoy and grow faster. Right now Id say that the chamber all of the casings are in are like 98-100%rH. I was told thatll be ok, but when they fruit I better lower the rH to 85%.
So I should wait till the pins grow a bit more (half inch high) THEN lower humidity to 85%? It would be sooo much easier if I were to hear that I can leave temps at 70-75 all the time while they are at this stage, and if I can leave the shrooms at 70-75 while fruiting that would be great too. The strain is B+
