Question about tempeture
    #1428738 - 04/04/03 02:02 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Ok i have had bad luck my past 3 casings. ALL died
I am using finch seed with brwnrice flower cakes with 50 50 peat moss.
The reason I think they are diing is because it has been cold this last two months.
Is the temp causeing the casings to mold greenly.
They all have had the green mold apon them.

lower temps are good for fruiting. your mold is caused by mold spores. these are there because you aren't sterile enough or your casing mix is not properly made. sterilize your casing mixture, adjust it to the proper water content, use clean EVERYTHING while you're working, and allow plenty of exchanges of clean, fresh air.

try using a casing mix with a pH buffer. the peat in the mix causes your casing to become acidic, which alot of molds, and trich mold in particular, thrive on.

you may want to try coco coir casing. the material is far more sterile and less prone to acidity than 50/50.

if you do use 50/50, sterilize it, and use a pH buffer.

Molds usually prefer warmer temps in my experience .
Sounds more like improper sterilization techniques .
BRF and bird seed cakes ? Why not just do bulk teks with WBS as a starter ?
But yes if temps are to low for good colonozation (running) , myc will grow slow , leaving window of opportunity open for contams to set in .
Keep those incubation temps in 78-86* F range for optmum growth of mycelium .
Good Luck

Any information I give is not intended to aide you in the production of potentialy illegal substances !None of my exp comes from growing illegal varities , so take it as you will .
So with that said here is our mission statement .
