1) PF Tec says that for ideal germination, temp should be ~70. Ive also heard that this is ideal for fruiting temperature. But then people say that ideal fruiting is 10 below germination. So, what's right?

2) Based on my previous post about the bad fruiting chamber, how can I make it ideal or what is so bad about it otehr than the vermiculite floor that makes it a poor chamber?

You saw what the verm did to your stuff...cobweb haven. Ditch the verm and replace with Hydroton or Lava rocks.

It's definately a large problem.  I'm sure if you use perlite or other suitable humidity techs you will have much more success :smile:

I do not recommend Perlite, it just makes a goddamn nasty mess plus you gotta replace it a lot.

Perlite is the best thing to use on the bottom. It is not nasty and you don't have to ever replace it if you sterilize it each run.

I think it has a much higher surface area than volcanic rock, and the myc loves to grow down into it and drink deep of the water. Sometimes you can even get more pins off of the perlite than the cake itself.
