cubensis in cold temps
    #11188247 - 10/05/09 06:46 PM (8 years, 13 days ago)

I recently tried a little "sample" of some new harvests that have been fruiting in temperatures between 55 and 65f
I used the same method that I have always used, the same fc and other conditions, except for temperatures.

I noticed that these mushrooms seemed much better tasting and had a more "rich" texture, with more dense fruit bodies.

after seeing in other places that there are lots of other mushrooms that develop better tastes when grown in lower temps I wonder if anyone else has noticed this in cubes. (trying to disregard most other factors such as spawn medium etc.)

Im just ressurecting this because i am wondering the same exact thing. My cakes are currently fruiting in temps of 63F-68F and i was wondering if its okay to fruit them in these temps?

Will it really make them more dense being fruited in cold temps? I have been opening my window in the room they're fruiting in a few times a day to get the room fresh air.

yes cooler temps make more denser, and in my opinion more potent fruits.

i have wanted to make that statement for about a month now but, figured i would be ran out- i think they are all of the above by fruiting them in lower temps. too. i noticed when i left the door open and left for 3 days and then harvested a flush. i wish a trusted mycologist would weigh in.

Ok so I can theorize about why lower temps cause more potency based on the fact that the lower temps do increase density.

My reasoning is this...

Low temp = more density because the cooler air condenses more moisture which the mushroom has more time to soak in (as they are 90% water as well as lower temps cause them to fruit slower).  This means that it is able to soak in moisture from the air for a longer period of time.

Because the mushroom has more moisture and more it still has the same amount of alkaloids per cm of tissue but, this is more tissue, therefore the same amount of content per tissue just more of it...

Does that make sense...is it right?  I'm hoping someone who knows for sure will jump in.  Lower temps also help prevent contams.

Personally I think the slower it grows, the higher the density and possibly potency as well. PE is known for taking its sweet time while having both of these characteristics. Therefore, PE fruited in cold temperatures should (potentially) be the most potent cubes of all if this is true.

Cold does slow growth and add density from what I've seen.

I moved my greenhouse over by the window and turned off the heater.
It's colder and brighter, but seems to be working the same.

What is the absolute lowest temp a cube will grow at?  I've been trying to figure out where I should set up, so I spent about an hour tonight walking around my house with a infrared thermometer.  The basement is by far the best location for it, but currently, and probably for the next couple months, the temp down there is 48F.

Is that too cold, or will they just grow really, really slow?  I do have a small electric heater, but without first building an insulated enclosure, I don't think it will do much good.

48 is no good unless you could get a small space heater in there.  As long as the room is around 70-75 (there abouts) colonization times will be average or good.  Any lower for that stage and you might cause some slow growth.  Not bad, just slow.  Fruiting temps can be that low, not that its recommended but, they'll fruit.

I think ive had things get down tothe 40's but never for a prolonged time.  Always just a couple hours or so at night. I did notice slower colonization rates but nothing serious in the long run
