Pins can take anywhere from 7 -12 days to appear.  Relax, Smoke a bowl..  They will come..

what factors can keep pins from growin? would too low or too high (possible?) humidity keep pins from appearing? what is a good/easy way to make sure enough humidity is present?
thanx,
the sheep

Higher temps can keep pins from forming. Make sure the temp is around 75F as this seems to work for SWIM. As far as moisture, try perlite in a dish if humidity is too low. For casings, SWIM finds that they provide their own moisture. If no pins are present, try lightly misting the casing. Make sure not to mist once pins do start to form.
