fruiting temps (sorry), and smell
    #2877642 - 07/11/04 11:11 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

So I've got two casings coming along, first is a 1/2pint of WBS with 50/50 peat/verm casing, second is a 1/4pint of WBS "bulk" spawned to about 2 pints of WBS, cased with straight peat.

The first is coming along pretty well, looking to make a fruiting chamber tomorrow so I can take it outta the incubator. I know the recommended temp is 70F, but what happens if you stray from this while fruiting? Reason being that my room ranges from 54-64F and I don't really want to shell out for another heater unless I really need it. Does the temp affect speed of growth or anything?

My second casing is smelling a little "vinegary", not sure why. Looks fine? Maybe it's just what peat smells like when you zap it?

Cheers.

You will probably run into pinning problems. If mushrooms do form (which I have seen outdoors in temperatures you speak of) then they will both grow very slowly, and only reach part of their potential. Try to get it close to 70 at least during the day, or use a lightbulb inside your fruiting chamber that will heat it. A friend of mine did that same thing and it worked fine without adding a heater. He liked his house cold...

I am assuming it is contaminated. You mentioned you spawned it to WBS...
Not a good thing to do unless you did a grain to grain transfer in a jar. If you spawned sterilized grain open air, into a casing tray, then I would say your risk of contamination is very high...

The only smell you should ever have is the nice sent of mushroom, and possibly a hint of whatever you're casing it in. I have about a 5% tolerance for anything that even hints out of the ordinary. Within a day, I'll quickly know if it happens to pass the first days test.
