Fruiting temp question
    #1270081 - 02/02/03 06:38 AM (18 years, 11 months ago)

My cat is doing something wierd, i found this picture on his digicam...

He also said his room is only 65 F, and the pins seem to be growing slowly, he doesnt have many ways to heat up the terrarium so if the temps stayed at 65 would the mushrooms grow to the same size but just take longer to mature? or will they be smaller and take longer.

And, any ideas to get it up to a warmer temperature? maybe misting the terrarium with hot water?

BTW this is my cats first attempt and those appear to be mycobags cut in 1/2.

yep, the mycelium will pin at those temps.....the mushrooms will grow extremely slowly, and may not reach maturity....they also may mutate.

I cant see how misting with hot water would do anything at all.....try putting your fruiting chamber somewhere warmer.....or maybe buy an aquarium heater to submerge in a jar of water.

Is it just me, or is that cake not completely colonized?

If you don't have the money for an aquarium heater, try a jar or 2 in the terrarium with some very hot water in them and guage the temp.

Oh its colonized, the mycobags just arent mixed very well and there was a lot of vermiculite in that one spot. If it wasnt colonized then its a miracle it hasnt been contam'd in the two weeks since it was birthed.

I knew the mutation thing was BS, cause cold temps wouldnt mutate any genetic information, only things like chemicals like lysol etc..amd UV light.

Is it ok to submerge a fish tank heater in a rubbermaid as long as its not touching the sides? i have a submergible one i could use, but no jars big enough (its like 12").
