Let's see...inverted pinning?
    #907489 - 09/25/02 04:30 PM (18 years, 10 months ago)

I heard about this guy who is using a 8" by 18" semi-clear sterlite conatiner with GT rye cased staight verm. He taped up the sides with black electrical tape but left the bottom open to check up on the mycelium (which, by the way has the most agressive looking rizo's I have ever seen). Here's the problem, there like 3 tiny (maybe 4 mm) pins on top but when he looked at the fully colonized bottom today he noticed about 30 or so similar sized pins, some maybe bigger. Should he dig a small hole in a local spot and just flip the entire bin so pins are facing upright and maybe sprinkle a little coco coir on top (to keep it inconspicuous)?? or would this not work. The place where it would be "birthed" would be an excellent spot as he has another 1' by 2' patch there with just over 50 medium sized mushies now. Also it has been drizzling on and off every day recently and his other patches are protected by upside-down plastic bins to keep the mushrooms from rotting, should his be done right after he puts the upside-down casing in or should it be allowed to do its own thing naturally? Any help is greatly appreciated.

Edit: OK, I actually sat down and counted....more than 70 pins....upwards of 100 maybe...i really don't want to let his casing go to waste. I was thinking maybe the shroomes would correct themselves and grown upright since his casing/substrate is onle about 1.25 inches thick total....what do you guys think he should do?

Thanks a lot. Casing slid out just like a huge cake and there are even more pins on the sides where the tape was, this thing was just itchin to pin and the funny thing is that I could only find the scattered ones on top originally. The guy buried the casing down about 2 inches and sprinkled coco coir on top then covered with moist leaves and underbrush. I'll let you guys know how it turns out since I'm sure there are a few people here who have run into this problem before.
