cold casings?
    #3262072 - 10/21/04 09:59 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

While my squirrel works on making an insulated closet his casings in a stainless terrarium have plunged down to 60 deg and they haven't done anything in a week or two. He's getting really antsy because they're starting to blue and die. He fears contamination so he started piping hot humid air into the stainless terr. in hopes of warming things up a bit, but the temps just won't go up.

Are these casings doomed or is there a good way to jump start them back to life quickly?

Hail to the King, Baby

They should be fine..bluing isnt a sign of dying, its a sign of drying out a bit. Just get them somewhere you can bring the temps up to speed things up. They should even fruit in those temps, just very slowly.

"life is like a drop of rain getting closer and closer to falling into a lake, and then when you hit the lake there is no more rain drop, only the lake."

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)
