cold apartment..
    #2743290 - 05/29/04 01:27 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

my friend is going to grow mushrooms in mycobags, his apartment that he is moving into averages 69-70 degrees, my understanding is that is not warm enough to grow in. is there anyway to make the cardboard box he is growing in warmer without the use of electrical heating items? would wrapping a blanket around the box insulate it at all and make the temp warmer than the room temp? or if he bought a heat rock( like used for reptiles) work?

to do the actull growing stage that temp is fine its the stages befor that u need warm temps but u can use the tub inside a tub method with a 100w water heater and put a towel or blanket over the tub helps keep the heat from escaping from the sides of the lid

if i were to put a heat rock under the box would the temps the rock reach be hot enough to eventually cause a fire with the cardboard?

They will grow slowly at that temperature. You can do it, but it's going to take twice as long as at the ideal temps.

Try an electric blanket for a quick heat boost. They aren't that hard to get and are pretty safe within reason. They can be wrapped around most things. Either way, 70? is fine IMO for the whole life cycle as long as you are a patient person.

Use a small floresent light for lighting and just lay it on top of the chamber. Worked for me a while ago.

What the hell am I saying it works now.
