What is the different factors for fruitings vs colonizing?
Such as temp, light, air flow? what my question really is what should the temp light and air flow change between fruiting and when its colonizing

Please base this all on casing not cakes and if there are anymore factors please add them

Psilocybe Cubensis Growth Parameters

taken without permission from

Paul Stamets and J.S.Chilton: The Mushroom Cultivator

If you want more information (and there is plenty!), go buy the book ::


Mycelial Types: Rhizomorphic to linear; whitish in overall color but often bruising bluish where injured.

Standard Spawn Medium: Rye grain. See Chapter III.

Fruiting Substrate: Rye grain; wheat straw; leached horse or cow manure; and/or horse manure/straw compost balanced to a 71-74% moisture content.

Method of Preparation: See Chapters III, V, and VI. Pasteurization achieved through exposure to live steam for 2 hours at 140?F. throughout the substrate. Straw or Compost should be filled to a depth of 6-12 inches. Straw should be Spawned at a rate of 2 cups/sq. ft.

Spawn Run:

Relative Humidity: 90%.

Substrate Temperature: 84-86 ?F. Thermal death limits have been established at 106?F.

Duration: 10-14 days.

CO2: 5000-10,000 ppm.

Fresh Air Exchanges: 0 per hour.

Type of Casing: After fully run, cover with the standard casing whose preparation is described in Chapter VIII. Layer to a depth of 1-2 inches. The casing should be balanced to an initial pH of 6.8-7.2.

Post Casing/Prepinning:

Relative Humidify: 90 + %. Substrate Temperature: 84-86?F.

Duration of Case Run: 5-10 days.

CO2: 5000-10,000 ppm.

Fresh Air Exchanges: 0 per hour.

Light: Incubation in total darkness.

Primordia Formation:

Relative Humidify: 95-100%.

Air Temperature: 74-78 ?F.

Duration: 6-10 days.
CO2: less than 5000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges: 1 -3 per hour.

Light: Diffuse natural or exposure for 12-16 hours/day of grow-lux type fluorescent light high in blue spectra at the 480 nanometer wavelength. (See Chapters IV and IX).

Cropping:

Relative Humidify: 85-92% [Cased Beds]

Air Temperature: 74-78 ?F.

CO2 : less than 5000 ppm.

Fresh Air Exchanges: 1 -3 per hour.

Flushing Pattern: Every 5-8 days.

Harvest Stage: When the cap becomes convex and soon after the partial veil ruptures.

Light: Indirect natural or same as above.

Yield Potential: Average yields are 2-4 Ibs./sq.ft. over a 5 week cropping period. Maximum yield potential has not been established.

Moisture Content of Mushrooms: 92% water; 8% dry matter.

Nutritional Content: Not yet established.

Never expose them to temps above 95F
Never expose them to temps below 40F

Other then that warmer is better for vegetative growth and cooler is better for Fruiting. As long as the temperature is less for fruiting then it was for vegetative growth, which is impossible to not be, unless you TRY and make it that way, you will have success.

Optimum temps were listed in the post above.
