Heat Pads
    #1148022 - 12/17/02 08:05 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I have a heat pad that fits snuggly under the box my jars are incubating in. I have 2 problems first off I dont know the temperature it outputs, it has 3 settings I was wondering if keeping it on low would be sufficient too speed growth and not cause thermal death. Also I am considering not growing shrooms to maturity instead just growing the jars too 100% then drying and extracting with alcohol. Anyone familiar with the theory of mycellium producing more psychoactive when its incubated at lower temps please help.

I remember reading something about mycelium having no psychoactive chemicals in it unless it has a flush, and even after that it's a minute amount. As for the heating pad, go to wal-mart and get a $5 temp sensor to find out the temp.

Well your wrong i once extracted the needed alkaloids because i had to get rid of 12 cakes there are about 50-75mgs of extract per cake with about 50% purity possibly less. If you use 200 proof ethanol. You get amber brown crystal 250mgs of this stuff put me into outer space. There are no Walmarts in Chicago.

Go out and buy a thermometer. It isn't hard. I promise. Really. It isn't. I have never understood why one would wish to waste mycelium by doing an alkaloid extraction from healthy mycelium. It is incredibly wasteful. Fruit the cakes, it isn't hard. The alkaloid yeild from 12 properly fruited 1/2 pints will be far greater than that of which is extracted from the same 12 1/2 pints. Unless you wish to do extractions for stealth reasons (in which case, you really shouldn't be cultivating anway), fruit your cakes. You will be a lot happier.

I agree, with everything you said.
