too cold?
    #11253890 - 10/15/09 05:02 PM (8 years, 1 month ago)

i was wondering at what temp is it too cold for cubes?  i am using pf tek method and at night it gets as low as 60.  everything seems to be going okay.  the temp bounces from 60 to 74 through out the day.  and if its getting too cold any suggestions on warming the room up?

its OK.. 60 is on the low side.. things will progress slowly  but thats OK

fruiting in that weather is nice tho.. large dense fruits..

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

That will work fine. Optimal temps are 74-78f but it's not necessary. Colder temp are actually known to make the fruit denser & grow a bit slow.

cubes can still colonize under 60 you should be fine just expect a longer time for it to finish

60 deg. is fine. Too cold is when YOU are too cold. If it's in a living area of your house and you are not dressed like Quim the Eskimo, then it's fine.

If you want to heat up the room turn the thermostat up. (not necessary though)

:goodluck:

thanks very much.  yall are absolutely correct, the fruiting is slower but the flushes seem NICE.  i just harvest a cap that was 25g (wet) and the veil was just breaking:)  very beautiful!
