What's the lower limit on fruiting temps?
    #3262979 - 10/22/04 12:46 AM (12 years, 8 days ago)

What's the coolest temps you have successfully fruited a Psilocybe cubensis strain?

I realize that the optimal temps are in the mid 70's, but was wondering if anyone has had success with fluctuating cooler temps.
A friend has an unheated barn loft where he might try to fruit some already colonized bulk bins of poo/straw.

Here's the details:
~ strains are EQ, KSSS, and Penis Envy
~ have been kept @ 84 degrees until fully colonized(past 12 days)
~ daytime temps 57-70 degrees
~ no electricity in barn
~ nighttime temps 45-60
~ plan to fruit in Rubbermaid tubs with perilite humidification
~ not in any real hurry

Is it worth a try?

It will be slow but it may be pulled off.

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?
