Why do you ask? Are you planning on keeping the jars outside?

They will colonize at room temp, but just take a long time. As for sitting outside in the snow, I doubt it.

since my incubator is a piece of trash, i usually just keep them in a box at room temp (which this time of year is 68 degrees). they colonize fine. there is a graph in the FAQ which shows colonization rate as a function of temperature... might better answer your question.

What are the optimum conditions under which to store the PF jars?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

PF jars, like other colonizing jars, should be kept in a warm (75 - 85?F), dark place that is not too dry (target RH from 50% - 70% rh). The dark allows for the mycelia to colonize the entire cake without being "told" to pin (mycelium pins when introduced to light, reduction of CO2, temperature fluctuations and lack of non colonized substrate). You don't want the cake to pin before the entire cake is colonized, otherwise you may have to prematurely birth the cake and risk contamination of the non colonized substrate, or leave a growing fruit inside while the rest of the cake has not been completed yet. You don't want to store the jars in an extremely dry area, since the water in the jar can evaporate into the air through the small punch holes in the lid.
A too humid environment can cause molds growing on the outside of the jars and possibly spreading into the jars, so don't go with the humidity over 70%.
