Pin Time-frame Question
Posted 03 February 2019 - 01:51 PM
Starting from "Visible Full Colonization" point what is the shortest and longest time frame you folks typically see pins on bulk.
This one was transplanted from colonized wheat berries to bulk on 1/19. It hit visible full colonization on 1/30.
I initiated fruiting protocols on 1/30.
When would be a realistic time frame this thing would pop off. I usually don't care but ai got a friend who wants to try these B+ and I'm trying to set a FRESH shroom trip date.
Maybe next weekend? Or should I set the trip date for the following weekend.
Here's some pics.

The pics look ok. Just keep giving that tub plenty of FAE and make sure the microclimate at the surface looks good, and you should have pins soon. Then depending on genetics, temps, moisture retention in the sub and general parameters, they should be matured in 7 or so days after pinning.

I'm sure you'll get pins within 2 or 3 weeks. You probably have a contam on the inside of the sub if it takes any longer and nothing wrong is visible on the surface.
Cool good info. When is like too long? Like throw away long. 2-3 weeks a month?
I usually get pins within a several days to a week, but some strains do take longer.
You can have brand new trays ready from MS within 3 weeks, so yeah I'd consider that the most time worth waiting. After that I'd consider it a waste of space.
This is only for cubensis, BTW. Some species take a long ass time.
Edit- if your tray or whatever can fit in the fridge, you can suspend the flush for quite a while and have freshies for whenever you want. They wont rot if attached to the sub and in the fridge. I have bags in my fridge from late Sept with freshies on them and they show no signs of degrading, yet. I even harvested a bag after over 2 months in the fridge, dunked it, and its pinning again right now. 5th flush. I'm getting lucky, but it shows it works.

I've had one tub pin within 24 hrs after opening it, also one that took over 20 days, average being like 7-14 days .

I got to get a humidity meter. I got all these cool toys but I don't have a $10 piece of equipment lol. I'm gonna get one right now.
That's a 90 quart tub the Mycelium probably took a couple days to tie up some loose ends.
