Putting grow op in Cryogenic stasis
    #3251223 - 10/19/04 01:22 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

My great aunt has to go away for about 5 days...if she leaves her grow room unheated it would get to be about 40-50 degrees while away. She wants to do this so nothing starts pinning before she gets back to maintain proper temperatures and humidity levels.

She knows this will definitely slow up the mycellium nicely but will it be damaging to any knots or pins? She has about 20 jars colonizing, 3 casings freshly in the making, and about 10 cakes birthed going on their 3rd flushes.

It should be ok. I'm not really sure what will happen to the pins never trying that myself. I don't think many have tried leaving them for a week in the chamber in low temps so there may not be many answers to this.

All creatures tremble when faced with violence. All creatures fear death, all love life. If we can only see ourselves in others, then how could we possibly hurt another creature?

I have seen this stall growth/pins so theres another answer. As far as kramer thats unreal shit! I've seen noticable growth differences in temps as little as ten degrees! Must of been some freaky PESA's I'm thinking? BTW it never gets that cold in the amazon :wink: Good to hear shrooms are more diverse than I thought! :wink:
