How much heat do mycelia give off?
    #1787796 - 08/07/03 11:26 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

Currently I wrapped a blanket around 12 pint jars of innoculated brf/verm

The temp is about 80 degrees, sometimes a little less
So I tried putting a heater next to them, which worked out well, the heater stayed on for 10 minutes then turned off for about half an hour

All was well untill a day later the heater didn't turn off!!
The thermometer that I had in with the jars read 150 so I quickly turned off the heater

I was wondering once it's startes colonizing more, how much will the temperature raise?

Thanks

The amount (if any) is so small that it's not worth worrying about.

Thermal death for cubensis mycelium is at about 104F.  :sad:

Chances are your jars are dead.

oh my god...that's horrible...if only the mycelia had a voice...then you could hear their screams of pain, torment, and anguish as they burned to death...it'd be a miracle if anything survived...

I wouldn't give up so quick, chances are some of the mycelium might still be alive.

Yes, I've heard of people having problems like you, where the temp in their incubation got very hot for a short period, and it still survived. Was there any growth before you turned on the heater? Is there any there now?

If ANY died, it would only have been 3 they are in 3 rows 4 jars deep and the heater on one side

When I got to them only the first 3 jars were warm and the others were still cool to the touch


So the mycelia won't raise it, lets say, a few degrees?

The mycelium's metabolism will raise the temperature slightly, but only very slightly. It's more noticeable in a densely packed incubator than in loose jars, and even then generally amounts to only one or two degrees.
