Got too cold last night...
    #1842946 - 08/23/03 10:53 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

My jars are outside because the temperatures are usually around 85 degrees. They are in small boxes ensuring that they are not exposed to light. Last night, however, it got very cold. My thermometer says that the coldest temperature was 69 degrees. It has been 4 days and no mycellial growth. I know that its too early to tell, but could the cold temperature stunted growth?

Lower temperaturs will slow growth, but not damage mycelium (as long as we're not talking freezing temperatures here). 69F is no problem at all, it will slow growth, so you just wanna make sure to raise the temp to 85F again, to encourage growth. No sweat.

Oh ok cool. I think that these syringes might be bad - a lot of people have been having problems with sporebank.com. I hope at least one develops mycellium so that my foaf can do liquid culture without having to buy more syringes.

My experiences with syringes have been bad also, though they didn't come from sporebank. I prefer sporeprints, of which I make spore syringes myself. I found that always works for me.

Until I build my glovebox I don't think that is a viable option for me. I went to home depot yesterday and bought a lot of plexiglas and a fan. All I need now is some way to cut nice holes in the plexiglas and cut the peice of wood down to a good size and somehow attatch it all together and mount the fan in the wood. Oy vey.

Just get a sharp knife and some sort of stencil you can trace around...just keep slowly cutting through. Hot glue guns work wonders and they are air tight too

A glovebox is a pre, but not absolutely necessary. I can make uncontamed syringes without glovebox, flowhood or even an alcohol flame. Just make sure your working area is clean (clean it with chlorine, or spray with lysol) and there's no air flow.

you gotta remember that 60 degrees isn't even that cold. i usually start two sets of jars at a time, one set goes in the incubator/terrarium and the other sits in my bottom drawer. but the time the jars in the  incubator are done, i birth them then harvest. once 3 flushes are done,, the jars in the bottom drawer are ready to be birthed :wink:

are the small boxes they are inside of in direct sunlight?

that could make them too hot.

Nope. I made sure to put them in a place with shade all the time.

your temps should be fine then. 4 days isn't long for germination.

You should also consider cotamination if you store your jars outside.
