I also fan 3 or 4 times a day with very good results.When I get lazy and only fan 1 or 2 times a day I get a lot of aborts.I'll gladly wait an extra 2 or 3 days fanning 3 to 4 times a day with few if any aborts,than fanning onces a day with many aborts.But I've noticed that what works best for one person doesn't for someone else.Try different methods and find what you like best.That's the fun of growing.

Straight verm casings, I have been fruiting foro about two weeks now, or in the fruiting stage, althought there has been no pin formation, just a lot of myc. colonizing the patching I keep putting on. This is the 3rd time I have had to patch. Has anyone gone through this?

Thanks.

patience is a virtue.....As I've recently learned. I spawned two brf jars to a straw pellet substrate and it took almost a month to pin up...man was it worth it...huge first flush....just wait it out and don't over mist

yeah man.. patience! do NOT touch ur casing nor move it.. cus itll just take htat much longer... my biggest mistake was being impatient.. thatll only make it take longer... for instance i made my casing a month ago and it finally started to pin yesterday but in the mean while get a sack n chief up! :smokin:

Except for having to patch...that is my biggest fear. The only moving I did, was to churn up the casing layer a bit because it was starting to colonize quite thouroughly. I scratched a bit and patched and I am waiting. Got some karo finally colonized and have been wanting to try some verm/coir casings and peat/verm casings too. I want to see how much better that coir hold moisture than the verm. I have found that verm likes to evaporate water quite quickly, I hope the coir holds that moisture better, but from what I have read, it seems it does. No pasturizing coir, when casing right? Pretty much just break from the brick, hydrate to capacity, mix in the verm and hyd. lime, and your casing layer is done, right? Or should we atleast nuke the final casing mix just for an extra step of steralization.

1 month for your casing to pin, were they straight verm?

Thanks again.

I've scratched only once and that was because I have read much about overlay. I noticed that a couple of the casings had pretty much colonized through my verm casing layer really well and was worried about overlay. With straight verm casings, do you have to worry about overlay? Or do you just, after patching, let it colonize all it wants, exposing it to the fruiting conditions?

Say someone had a few cakes that have been fully colonized for 4-6 days, and haven't began to pin yet. Anything that person should do?

I would like to know what most of you guys,[&girls] do for brf-verm cakes, either birth the cakes prior to pinset,or leave in the jars until pinning starts?:space:

I have limited experience but I birthed them when they all were 100% colonized and they pinned nicely in the fruiting chamber.

Some say it is better to wait for pinning but mine worked out fine.
Experiment. Do half each way and see what works.

I used to birth 5 days after the outside is colonized. Then they would get a 12 hour dunk and moved to the chamber.
