Incubated at too high temperature, now what?
    #2457565 - 03/21/04 04:42 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)


A screwup while I was building my incubator and subsequent lack of sleep made me incubate my 1/2 pints at about 100 degrees (F) for almost a week. Once I figured out what was up, I dropped the temp to 80-85 and they kept on growing, and in fact, I just birthed 6 of them last Thursday.

With all the talk about heat death and such, do I need to be worried? WillI get no fruits, or fruits that have no potency, or will the fact that the mycelium kept on growing mean that everything is ok?

You are OK. Thermal Death for cubensis mycellium was established at 106F, according to Stamets. If it keeks growing now, you will be fine.

You only got a week of slow growth at 100F and now things will go better..

good luck!
