nightlight=heat source?
    #3223868 - 10/06/04 07:32 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Ive innoc-d 12 half pints with ecuador syringe from sporesource...the plan is for invitro. After 4 days the spores germinated and i have nice little blotches of myc present but im afraid that with dropping temperatures its a bit too cold for good growth...so ive decided i need a heat source. as you can see the grow is in a drawer....i dont have immediate access to a heatpad or anything, but i do have this nightlight. with the cover on it, the amount of light released is minimal, and since invitro grows are advised (in the basic tek, although i have read differently throughout the boards here) to get light from the very beginning, would using this nightlight be a good source for heating?

No way that is gonna bring temps up to colonize correctly!You need a heat pad as if you didnt already know that but without it it may not go as quickly as you would like to !!

a nightlight wont provide enough heat to sustain 86f but a nice 60w would.... i highly suggest you DONT go about putting a 60w lightbulb in your dresser though. try to find a semi-insulated container for all those jars then hunt down a warm spot in your house, i would check it throughout the day just to make sure it never ever ever gets above 95... mycellium will decay at 106, which is bad. and you dont want to risk losing the organism in efforts to speed up the process.

the current temperature is around 75 or so...will progress just be slow at this temperature? or do i really need to up the temp? The drawer is the perminant home for these jars. Its a security issue.

you dont NEED to up the temp. but Ps.c. grows fastest @ 86f and its a very very noticable change in speed. if you want my opinion its definitly worth building an incubator if u want to speed up the process. for hobby growers with only a few jars you may just want to neglect heating it up, it will by all means still work, but your leaving more time for contaminants to take hold, and moisture to escape.

Cubies only need a minimal amount of light (a second from a flashlight everyday) to start pinning. Unless your growing them jars invitro I wouldnt do it or your gonna have shrooms before your jars are fully colonized and thats gonna create problems. If growing invitro then you definatly should leave the light in there and on and don't block it. Otherwise get the light out.

"Cubies only need a minimal amount of light (a second from a flashlight everyday) to start pinning." This is only speaking of triggering pins, it does not at all mean an acceptable pinset by any means. WORD :wink:

yeah just go to Rite Aid or Echerd and get a heating pad for 12-15 bucks. you want total darkness for incubating. or you could go w/ a tub in tub. i know this is just a temporary setup for you but try to stay away from using light as a heat source. or maybe you could put the jars in a shoe box and then have a couple light bulbs going?

Yeah don't other people go getting confused thinking I'm saying to do that to induce pinning when you want to. You need 12-18 hours of light to induce a good pinset but in this case were just talking about any pins at all not being wanted and only a little bit of light can cause this.
