Jars not showing signs of growth, could it be....
    #1320510 - 02/19/03 08:40 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

that the spores were killed by heat? one of my thermometers (for air temp) siad it was 50 degrees celcius. that is 120 degrees F. But someoen said spores do not die at that temp, only mycelium. I lowered the temp down to 35 degrees celsius (using the same thermometer) which is 90 degrees F. Im not sure if this thermometer is accurate or not. But if it was at 120 degrees, could they still germinate if i lower the temp? seeing how spores do not die. im going to see if a friend has any spare thermometers lying around and match up.

any help would be grately apreciated.

If you can't convince them, confuse them.

Describe your incubator/method of incubation. I thought that spores could be rendered sterile in cases of extreme heat...this past summer there were a few threads about suspect packages from warm places.
