It'll be fine. Mycelium activity is directly proportional to temperature (to a point of course!) so the mycelium will just chill until you get the heat going again.

Um, inversely related would mean as temperature goes up, rate of growth goes down. This is not the case. Colonization occurs faster at 80-85F than it does at 60-65 or 70-75, thus, making this a proportional relationship.
