Slowing respiration
    #1071272 - 11/20/02 08:26 PM (14 years, 22 days ago)

I have to leave my casings for a couple days due to the holiday and because of financial constrictions I won't be able to automate my setup.  Is it possible to slow the respiration of my casings by decreasing the temperature with icepacks placed underneath my terrarium?  Would this decrease in temperature harm or hinder the mycellium in any way?  My casings will have probably just finished their first flush.

Thanks for any help    :grin:

Don't worry about it :smile:...They won't die.
Lack of fresh air will only slow down growth IME. Possibly reduce your yield a bit also.

I've left some casings once for 2 weeks unatended. When i got home there were spores all over the chamber, and lots of beautiful big mushrooms :wink:. But then again my fruiting chamber is an aquarium which is not completely airtight...
