Another colonization temp question
    #11666921 - 12/17/09 09:45 AM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I was just wondering something about colonization of substrate regarding temperatures. The general optimal temperature range most people on this forum recommend for cubensis, whatever the range might be (I can't remember exactly at the moment), is this the optimal range for most/all mushroom species, or specific to cubensis? I'm trying to colonize some rye grains with psilocybe cyanescens mycelium right now, and was curious as to what temperature I should try to keep the jars at. It ultimately doesn't really matter, since I can only keep them around 60-65 degrees where I am, which seems too cold. But ps. cyanescens are a cold fruiting species, so maybe it is actually favorable to colonize at lower temperatures. Any input/insight/past experience-sharing would be much appreciated.

:peace:

Each species has different temperature preferences.
Stamets gives 65-75 as the range for Ps cyanescens for the spawn run. Are they growing ok?

So I'm still a little low, but I'm not too far off. This is good. I really need to read more Stamets

There's nothing growing at all so far. I inoculated last Friday I think, so I guess that's normal considering how cold it is.

Only two jars for now. This was done with my first ever homemade syringe from a wild print, inoculated in my first ever rye preparation. There is a lot that can go wrong with this combination:rofl:. Best be starting small, I figure

And also check the search engine. Some things have changed in cubensis cultivation since he wrote TMC, and its possible that's true for cyans as well.
But I would think a styrofoam cooler would get you up a few degrees. Put in a hot water bottle until they get going and start making their own heat.
