    #645444 - 05/26/02 04:48 AM (15 years, 5 days ago)

Hello fellow shroomers,new as a user,but have gotten lots of good info here.
I cased three weeks ago using 50/50 + .Mycelium started to show then stopped growing as if getting ready to pin.I started to give 12/12 light with 11watt bulb.
Still no pins or fruit after two more weeks. Tray sitting on perlite in rubbermade clear chamber, small aquarium pump used twice a day for air exchange,temps at
80 to 50. Does any one have any thoughs or info to help? Or should i be more patient.

Wow...you shouldn't have to wait that long. After you case you want to keep it in the dark with temps around 80-86F and Rh of about 95% (putting a lid or a cover on does this perfectly) After the mycellium colonizes the 'valleys' of the casing roughly 80% or so then you remove the cover and drop your temps down to 70-75F and keep your Rh at about 85%. After doing this you should see pins within a week (depending on the strain).

Drop your temperature down..mycellium looks for a 10 degree drop in temp, fresh air and light to induce pinning. I think your temps might a little high for this stage.

good luck

you didnt say anything about your RH (relitive humidity). you should get a hygrometer, and measure the humidity, for casings, it needs to be about 85-95% for the best fruiting humidity. this could be the case. i had to high of humidity in one of my casings, and only had 1 small little pin head pop out, and a little meliculim growing around the outside.
peace
