We're still seeing a lot of posts asking what the earliest stages of pinning look like. I thought these would help some of the new members know what to look for. These pix will show you the full transition from hyphal knot through primordia, to pin formation. Hope they help out.

Here's a bit closer view of primordia morphing into pins.

Here's one more. Sorry for the large size, but the transition from primordia to pins is hard to see on a small jpeg.

LOL! I still have an orgasm when I see knots on a casing like that... The thrill never ends.

The surface structure is also something people new to growing should take note of.

It's peat/verm, 50/50, limed, and raked even after application to fully colonized compost. Since I switched back to peat based casings from coir, the pinsets are much better. Strain: Penis Envy.

wow.. what kind if camera did you use to get those shots?? I'm a photographer myself, I shoot black and whites in the oldschool way

I know almost nothing about digital cameras, but I want to get one so I can take pics of my boys (thats what my wife calls my mushies... don't get excited!)

Very impressive Roger. How long have you been playing with the Penis? I want to try them next.

No. Strain isolation on agar.

This was the best fruiting strain out of 13 that were isolated from one drop squeezed out of a spore syringe from The Hawks Eye. Nine of the thirteen strains were non-fruiting. Of the four that did fruit, two were mediocre at best, and the other good fruiting strain is the PE #3 here.

I knew I could find this pic if I looked hard enough. Had to search five different computers, but finally found it. It lets you see the different types of mycelia. These are the 13 isolates from that one drop of solution. Of the above, only the 3, 4, 6, and 13(bottom center with the smudge) were fruiting strains. If you look closely, they're the only ones with rhizomorphic mycelium. The other nine with cottony mycelium didn't fruit at all. It doesn't always work out that way, but in this instance it did. Hope this helps some of the new agar projects folks have going. These pictures were taken just before the plates were sectioned off and used to inoculate grain masters. Each grain master was divided by g2g into five more, and each was in turn fruited. The best fruiters were then multiplied several more times by g2g to make the casings pictured. My apologies once again for the large jpeg, but when I reduced it further, you couldn't see the mycelial types.

Definatly! A much better "structure" to the casing... HA! And people say I am "old fashioned" for using peat based casings.
