questions concerning germination
    #3068338 - 08/30/04 10:25 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

What temp should I keep the PF jars at during the entire germination stage until i take the cake out of the jar? People have told me
to have it at 84-87 F, but the PF Tek says around 70 F. Which one is it?! Also, should I keep my jars in complete darkness
during this entire stage or should it be in indirect light? Please let me know.

84-87F

Leave in darkness. Needs no light until you want it to pin and even then only a little.

During the incubation stage keep your jars at 86f in complete darkness, when you are ready to birth the cake in preparation for the little ones' arrival then a drop it down to 75-77f with indirect lighting.  Good luck!

At least a week, the faster the cakes colonize the less chance for contams. 74-77F. is optimal for fruiting cubies and 84-86F. is optimal for the substrate run (incubation) remember actual substrate temps will be 2 degrees higher so actual ambient air temps during incubation optimally will be 82-84 degrees not that it will make that big a difference but sometimes it does and learning your shit right right from the beginning always helps down the road.
