I have a fish tank with a submersed heater to keep the humidity high, the light out.and the tempature at 26. The weather, however is 20 during the day. If i moved the basket outside with a clear bag over the top.and.misted 3x per day and the tempature (maybe) drops below 15, is the basket likely to pin? Is therea anrother way to initiate pinning?

I would think that high humidity is helpful, but I don't know. Sometimes in the spring, the oysters here will be pinning and it is not cold.

it's pretty strain dependent, but if the temp dips down to 15 then yeah it should pin, all other things being OK.
