Temperatre Over 84
    #2536566 - 04/07/04 09:19 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I was told in a previous post that you were to keep the temperature of colonizing cakes at 84F but not over. My terrarium is at 86 and has been there for a couple of hours, is this going to hurt it? I have turned down the thermostat, but it is in about 1/2 gallon of water, so it will take a while to cool.

The main reason people tell ya to keep it at 84 or so is that as the myc grows it generates a little of it's own heat, so if the inside of your chamber is 84 the inside of the jar is probably 86 depending on how colonized it is. I'm sure there is more on this in the faq.

I have had temps skyrocket to 100 degrees some days. Didn't hurt them from being in the temp a couple of days. I just made sure to do something about it to lower it to at least 88.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.

ok, so it can go fairly high and still grow, but how low can you go? the ultra sonic really cools things down on my set-up.

If you really want to get a good idea of temps at the core of the cakes you could modify one of the jars to accept a probe type of thermometer. I would just make a hole in the lid just a little bigger than the thermometer before you sterilize the substrate and fill it with high temp silicone. When it is ready to go into the incubator just push the sterilized probe through the silicone and you have an exact reading of it's "body temp". (the silicone should make a sufficient seal to prevent contam invasion.)

Maybe this is to elaborate,but it is just thought.
P.s. after the birth you could use the empty hole in the cake to add water if necessary.

h20 @ 100degrees = gas + cooling = condesation in the bottom of the jar (if the water is still there at all)
