Maintaining Temp. in Styrofoam Cooler (from PF Tek)
    #2889125 - 07/14/04 12:28 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

Ok, so first off I've got 6 jars already inocculated and pretty much covered in mycelium (P. cubensis, Amazonian strain), except for the bottoms. I'm guessing I will be transfering the jars within the next week or so and I'm stumped on how to keep the temperature around 80F in my large styrofoam cooler. I purchased an ultrasonic humidifier, so humidity will not be a problem. I've thought of lights and such but I was just wondering what my other options were. Any response would be appreciated. ALSO, will the shrooms grow if I dont use anything to heat it and let it sit in my bedroom at room temperature? probably 70-75F or so

Pinning and mushroom growth will most likely suffer if you dont keep it at a temp of 75-80f.

if your gonna use a styrofoam cooler, dont put it on top of a wood table! I made that mistake before, not thinking about how porous styrofoam is, and the humidity leaked through the bottom, warping my tapletop.

What would happen if I used my desklamp during the night but kept it off during the day? It keeps the cooler at about 80F, so is like 12 hours of light and 80 enough to cancel out the 12 hours of 75F?

If I were you, I'd relax, chill out, find a box and a nice thick towel and just put the jars in that with the towel inside as insulation and put it in a closet somewhere and leave it there. It'll do the job without fucking around with this stuff. Try it.
