Northern room temperature
    #1636027 - 06/15/03 11:44 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Room temperature here is about 72F, will that hinder growth? Should I try and boost the temperature up to 82 in the terrarium?

Most shrooms grow fine anywhere from 70-80 degrees. Incubation is in the higher range of 85ish. I would not make it 82 in the terrarium, that is too warm, keep your 72 or make it like 74-76 is you really want to be perfect.

Dammit, if I use the terrarium I can get in the mid eighties, if I don't use it I can get low seventies. There's jsut no way to win!

Why do you get mid 80's if the ambient air temperature is 70's? Do you use humidifier, spraying, do you leave it in direct sunlight?

I am using a lamp inside the terrarium to heat it, if I didn't I would get low seventies to high sixties (where the mycelium is now).

Maybe try putting it in various levels of indirect sunlight and regularly monitering the temp till you find the 74 degrees spot?
