how to lower the temp in the terrarium?
    #1980690 - 10/05/03 05:26 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

my terrarium temp is always around 75 degree, but i heard the best
fruiting itemp is at 70. well i could get 70 if turn on my air-con,
but i'll feel damn cold. and if don't turn on air-con, the temp will
go up to 78 - 80. which i suppose are too high. so are there any ways
to lower the temp in the terrarium and to save my freezing ass...?

75 is good,i'd guess that if it peaks a little higher during the day that it wont hurt.

i gotta say both my fruiting chambers stay around 80 and i havent had a problem...i do make sure they get some colder temps ever so often. 75 should be plenty fine.

^^^

I agree. I got triple/quadruple the mushrooms when I did a dunk and roll.

I just got done rolling mine in verm a few hours ago. In about a week and a half I should have another harvest.

I have my A/C set at about 78-80. No problems.

and after that you roll the cake in dry verm, then spray the verm.

i birth my cakes straight into a zip-lock bag then add a very weak peroxide solution 25/1 ratio.then they go straight into the fridge for 24 hours.then i roll in dry verm,double end case and mist them.then into the terrarium they go.
ps.i dont sterilise the verm and cant really see any point in doing so as the verm is treated with very high temperatures just before packaging.....thats how verm is made...it's heat treated mica,mica is the shiny mineral seen in granite rocks.
