Pinheads...
    #5826318 - 07/06/06 03:45 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I'm still a newbie and always search this site before asking questions...I'm pretty sure I know what a pinhead is, but not 100%. All the pictures I have seen are super close ups, so it's hard to tell. Does anyone have pictures from a normal point of view and maybe an explanation of what a pinhead is and the difference between a pinhead and an abort.

The difference between pins and aborts is usually noticable by color, how will vary by strain, but from my understanding they're fairly easy to spot once you have a bit of experience with your chosen strain.

As far as what pins look like...pretty much exactly what you've seen in the pics, albeit a bit smaller. with most strains it's pretty easy to notice a pin...since it doesn't look like your casing/substrate and doesn't look like mycillium...so using that simple logic process that simply narrows it down to either being a pin or a contam...but these two aren't exactly easy to get confused either.

Pins are simply baby mushrooms. Aborts are baby mushrooms that have stopped growing. Just keep an eye on the growth and color of your pins.

Aborts happen, its no big deal. Just pick them off with a pair of tweezers if you happen to have any.

First you get the knot, wich is a little white bump when that little white bump gets a redish brown head(not sure about albinos) then it has become a pin. Once the pin either stops growing or the head starts turning black then it is an abort.
