casing fruited, then stopped why?
    #806421 - 08/09/02 08:04 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

allright well my friends monkey has this casing, and well he just cased it and it started pinning and everything then huge fruits grew off this cake, all of them were in the 25gram+ range, after three days of huge fruits pratically growing over night, now nothing, whats wrong?me thinks the humidity is probably to high, (99%) but since space is limited and he placed it with cakes. any advice has to how to get the pins to mature? it was doing great the first 3 days yielding a lil over an ounce dry. hehe with these results why even bother with brf cakes? i just dont see it

if you can do it today put it off till tommorow cause odds are it isnt really that important and probably doesnt even need to be done at all.

If they just stopped growing half way through, you might have contamination under the casing layer. Then again if its a new pinn set and the pinn set just stopped, Check your temperature(72+ -), Fan some more to get rid of the excess CO2( after large fruits, the O2 content inside the chamber may be low) . Some times, a large flush will take alot out of the casing(nutrients) so they will; be slower matureing. Then again, you may have aborts. If they have halted grow completely, they may have aborted and need to be removed. bluhoney

temp stays at 78-79, but there was only like 15 mature picked and its a horse dung casing so i dont think there is a lose of nutrients and fanning is done 2-3-4-5 times a day. and as of aborts i dont see any they all jsut stopped growing pins are there but havent done anyting in 3 days. but there is the white fuzz mycellium covering the largest pin beeing about 2 inches, is this i sign of to much humidity? if it helps its the pf hawaiian strain.

Yes, if the pinn is getting fuzzy with mycelia, then the humidity is too high. That fuzziness you see is the pinn returning to a mycelia state. bluhoney

It's called a flush. it dosn't fruit contunuously forever. It fruited, now you have to wait for it to fruit again. You got a fucking dry ounce, how much more were you expecting from a first flush. Have you read the FAQ?

i was wondering if anyone else knew what a flush was.
you are, of course, correct.
it's time to get the casing cleaned up, re-hydrated and return it to pin set conditions for next flush.

It really depends on your point here, are you saying that the mushrooms that were growing halted completely? or are you saying that the mushrooms that were growing got big enough to pick and you picked them and the problem is that no more are growing?

99% humidity for a casing is very high. Casings aren't quite as unforgiving as cakes are in terms of humidity. Lowering the humidity would perhaps help you a little, I don't know whether I buy into this 99% humidity for cakes tripe anyway because your humidity can be too high, ie when your cakes start adding nothing but bulk rather than flushing. To me the bandwidth of 99%-100% seems to be extremely stretched. I would be interested to hear what the hippie3 thought of this matter.

I don't know whether Shawn has problems expressing himself without anger but I think you get his message.

well i had a nice pin set, and like 3-4 mushrooms were mature to pick a day for about 3 days, then i misted the casing and the pins all stopped maturing and whie fuzz grew over them they dont look like aborts none are rotting or turning black. these hawaiians seem like there on speed maturing over night though.., hehe just wish itd go back to fruiting theres still a good few hundred pins there sitting. timne to pull out terraium and sit on floor with plastic over casing?
tell me what you think

It would be better to house the casing in its own terrarium seperate to the cakes. Cakes and casings environmental requirements differ a little.

What you describe isn't the end of a flush, it is more well described as stalled growth.

A sign of humidity being too high is when the mycellium just grows (or adds bulk). I would suggest you think about using something like a garbage bag (there was a neglect tek thread a few days ago detailing using a garbage bag to store the casing) if you cannot place it into a plastic terrarium. The mushrooms, as they grow will have no trouble pushing the bag up and you probably won't need any external humidification.

The other option is to case the cakes you have in the terrarium, that isn't a bad idea as you clearly have casing reasonably down, this would allow you to drop your humidity in your growth chamber and fruit everything from there.

good luck..
