incubation - temp reached 100.
    #11185184 - 10/05/09 07:54 AM (8 years, 1 month ago)

Hi, this is my first grow.
I started incubation about 3 weeks ago and
my cake is close to being convered.
But today for at least 3-5 hours the temp reached
to just above a 100 and i know apparently
106 is thermal death and shit. Basically
is my cake fucked now.

Also Ive been reading up on the PF Tek method and was
wondering if its a good method or a shit method.

Cheers

PF Tek is flawless when followed to a T.  The only way to tell if the temps got too high is to wait it out and try fruiting (though it doesn't sound promising).  Don't give up on the tek just because you made a mistake (like we all have at one point or another).  Worse comes to worse, try it again.  :smile:

Incubators aren't very popular around here, and this is one of the reasons.
Your jars will probably be fine, but see if there's a cupboard or something that will work. Room temp is fine.

PF Tek is good. Some say it's great. If you don't have a pressure cooker, it's your best bet.

yup that why some people dont recomend incubators particularly to new cultivators. they sometimes cause more problems that any benifit gained which is minimal.

stick with room temp (75f). theres no rush to get them done and it makes no sense to risk messing it up when sticking with room temp works just fine.

I havnt noticed much difference at all between 75f and 80f. Maybe a few days
