Temperature Question?
    #1318944 - 02/19/03 10:21 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I would like your opinion on jar incubation temperature. 86 degrees seems to be the perfect temperature but I read that the temperature inside the jar is higher. I also read that you incubator should be 80 degrees. My dogs girlfriend has them in an uncubator an the temp inside is 86 degrees. Should I lower it for better results or is this ideal? Like everyone else, I am looking for the fastest mycelium growth.

Stamets says that 86 degrees is ideal for cubensis mycelial growth There are those that will argue that the mycelium generates heat and should therefore be incubated at a lower temp, but I don't buy it.

In a huge casing there may be a small amount of heat generated. In a 1/2 pint or quart jar? I do not think so.
