Re: Heating Pad Temperature?
    #13796 - 04/24/00 11:41 PM (22 years, 5 months ago)

Well I'm using a heating pad and I guess the ideal temperature is around 78 degrees. This is my first time too, but my mycelium have grown gradually.

I don't think that the jars have to be heated before innoculation. I was unsure about the temp so I experimented with the heating pad by putting layers of cloth till I got it at the 78 degrees. It seems to be working quite gradually, not rapid.

This is just what I think, I hope others will answer your questions.

close but not quite Agent, the optimal tempature for cubensis is 84-86 degrees, but 78 will work. Be careful with a heating pad because they have the potential of drying out the jars easily.

and dank, you might find it beneficial to hook up a dimmer switch to your pad so you can get a better range of tempature. I'm not sure how to do that exactly because i've never looked into it, but i've heard of other people using it. :smile:

Plastic won't melt at 86 degrees. Maybe soften a little.

Thanks vivid. I've been hearing around here that its 78. I guess that is the conservative temp.
