Attic growing, unwise?
    #1786270 - 08/06/03 09:13 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

Anyone had success growing in their attic? I've been up there on hot summer days and its obviously way too hot. Its not as hot as its been but I need to get a thermometer up there. How hot is too hot? Is 90 degrees too hot for mycelium to grow?

I'm going to log the temperature outside as well as the temperature inside the attic. This way I know how warm it has to be outside to reach the perfect temp range up there. I think that would be useful to some people because they'd have a "season" in which they could grow in their attics. Ofcourse the temps outside would fluctuate during the day, but I hope the attic works like a big incubator.

Or would you recommend I build my own incubator? The big problem i see with that is running an extension cord into a rubbermaid tub. I'm sure when I have friends or the landlord over they'll immediately have a looksy in the tub. I wish I had an outlet in a closet that I could use, but I dont.

Could I jimmy rig the wiring back behind the outlet so the wires run through the wall, into the closet through a hole in the wall? That would be some stealth shit. All I need is an aquarium heater so the gauge of wire wouldnt need to be that big.

u dont have to rig any wiring into a rubber made. just use perlite and fan manually/ my donkey just cut a potrion from the top of the container and covered/sealed it with suran wrap, worked for him

myco, i really wanted to grow quart jars in an incubator and do g2g transfers so I can have a lot of substrate. I want to give straw logs a shot.

some strains actually like it hot...cambodians are said to grow in temperatures up to 93F...a friend's mycologist colleague noted accelerated colonization at around 87F - 90F with koh samui...

Make small growing areas and insulate them very well.It should work.

AFOAF recently did a poor job of insulating his latest batch of B+'s against his heating pad. The temp varied between 87-103. They suffered no ill effects and even colonized two days quicker than usual.

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

President Dwight Eisenhower, 1953

My house has central air and an air conditioner in the attic, so the attic is the perfect place for me ^_^
