mycobag
« on: December 13, 2004, 01:01:31 PM »

I have a fully colonized mycobag that has been sitting out in the light (indoors) for about a month, and does not show a single pin. Do I need to open the bag in  order to induce pinning. I wanted to fruit these in the bag so that I could get a viable print out of it, but so far no luck.

Any advice?

I've allways understood that the three things that give rise to pinning are:

light

temperature drop

increased air exchange

So, Though I've neve worked with mycobags, I would imagine that you probably have to get some more air in there.

The only people that I have seen using mycobags use them to produce grain spawn which the then put into trays and apply casing.

 :unsure: Anyone got anything to add?

P.S. what's in the bag anyway?

You could take it out , break it apart and case it. Or even apply a casing layer on the block while still in the bag.

For casing information, check http://www.shroomery.org/casing
