my First Pin ! But all alone?
    #589041 - 03/25/02 04:16 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Woohoo, after about 5 weeks of work and worry, I have a pin in one of my casings! :smile:
The substrate the myceluim grew on was brown rice, worked alright.
Much slower then the rice/honey I have going now but anyways...
The casing layer is fertelized dirt, I keep the humidity high and shine blue light on it a few hours per day and fan it a couple of times a day.
I had seen no signs of pinning in a bit over a week (even with cold chocking) when I desided to deep scratch it. That was three days ago and as stated I now have one pin. Sorta wishing there where more though, any ideas?
(the casing is about 15*20cm, 3cm deep)

Personally, I wouldn't mess with it that much with the cold shocking and the deep scratching. I have had times where it took two and a half weeks for cased mycelium to show pins. Let nature do its thing. What is the temperature in the room where you are casing? What strain are you growing?

My bird casing is doing alright I guess.... A lot of humidity in the terrerium, but she keeps some plastic wrap over it, so it doesnt saturate the casing. Mycelium is poking thru though... Good sign for her I guess.

The strain is called South American, got it from a friend as spore prints.
As for not messing so much with it, yeah I probably should leave it alone, but the thing is I was taking some mycelium out to test something and well, shortly after that read about deep scratching and desided to give it a go.
