My idea for lowering outside temperature to start pins
    #1549091 - 05/14/03 07:07 PM (20 years, 9 months ago)

Ok I was at walmart tonight and bought a big ass rubermaid that will fit a 38 quart rubermaid inside it. I plan on spawning enough composted cow shit in big bags to fill the 38qt and put a casing layer on it. And I was planning to sit it out on my back porch cause it takes up alot of space and mayby fresh air would prevent contams. The thing is if I put it outside I might be going from the low 80's where I had the bags to high ninetys outside. I know they will also be going from dark to light and getting air exchange once I put them on the porch so should I be trying to think of a way to drop the temperature? I thought about putting ice packs all around the outside of the inner box but they would melt pretty quick and be a pain in the ass to keep up with. Comments? Sugestions?

lol! I live in florida and was trying to figure out the exact same thing. I even thought of the ice packs idea too. It's going to be hard to lower the temp at all after colonizing the jars cause my house is like 80 fucking degrees and I'm not using an incubator anymore.

Once you start the process it will keep going right?  If I can chill them for like a day or two will that be enough?  I want shrooms not a fuzzy white brick.  :grin:

I don't think ninety degree temps are good for anything. Then again, shrooms grow all the time in fields here during the summer no problem (depending on rain of course). I'd like to know too though since my friend is thinking about starting an outdoor patch.

I was just looking at a manual thermometer and temps hear in the summer get up to 45c....which is above the thermal death of mycelium....someone had better come up with something good!

It would be a shame to have to grow indoors in such nice, humid summer weather. Fucking hot as balls though!

Lol, I never did understand why I could have trouble getting pins in a terrarium that exacly matched paramaters and then walk outside in nothing at all like the book says conditions and see shrooms in my yard.  (the poison kind  :frown:)

I might not have anything to worry about but I want to make sure I do everything as well as I can since Im gonna have a ton of spawn invested in this.
