What is the best thing to do when PF jars pin before the cake is fully colonized? Should they be left incubating with the pins or should they be birthed immediately?

Wait for full colonization. Or cut the uncolonized portion off before placing in FC. Uncolonized cake will contam very quickly IME.

I basically let them go invitro until ready for the fc.

my friend had one recently do the same thing, he just let it go invitro as well, it kept pinning like crazy and then eventually the rest of the jar colonized.

I agree. Let the pins grow, and when at full colonization birth it.

DAMN these pins are big im not sure they can wait for full colonization, what if they get TOO big?? Amazonian is a very prolific strain DAMN.

Maybe in 1-2 days they should be washed quickly to get any substrate from the top (the only substrate remaining) off and birthed? Opinions?

Hehe yeh my Amazon's went crazy when they were invitro, and when you say the top do you mean your dry vermiculite layer?

My advice still stands. Let keep going! How can they get too big?

BTW: Got any pics?

Skatterman: I disagree completely! The Dark Tower Series is EPIC!!! :lol::lol::lol: To simply call it "great" is like saying the works of Douglas Adams are "occasionally mildly funny".

Ok pics first. Here are 4 pics of the 3 jars pinning... 4 pics because one jar's pins are big and I needed two pics.

I think somehow the moisture in the jars and inefficient FAE was caused by the jars being basically being sealed with water proof tape, which I didn't think at the time of appliance would reseal itself via its elasticity (needless to say I am not using it again because the jars stalled and then pinned early) which caused the stalling in the first place.

I am going to wait as long as possible, but if it comes down to the pins pressing up against the glass and top of the jar lid (as the one jar with the huge pins is already doing), should I just give the cakes a wash in some cold water to remove any non-colonized layer and then place them in the sealed fruiting chamber?

This amazonian strain is just so fast it caught me off guard. I don't want contams though, this will be in a sealed FC but still, I need to be careful, what do u think?

I have never had mycellium pinn before fully colonizing...

The B+ jars that are going sumultaniously with the amazons are not pinning at all and looks more colonized than the amazons... could the amazons be such fast colonizers that they are affected by FAE that greatly?
