will my myc grow?
    #3349696 - 11/12/04 02:12 AM (12 years, 29 days ago)

I just found out that my heating pad doesn't work and i can't afford a new one right now (just after i inoculated 5 quart jars too). The temperature of SWIMS house ranges from 72-75 degrees, is that even going to allow mycelium to grow?

ya, it will grow but it's just gonna grow slower than if it were incubated in 85F temperature range. No worries. You'll just have to practice a bit more patience :P

On second thought it probably reaches 77-78 degrees F. here in the day.

Yes, but very slowly. You will also lose one of the pin triggers(temp drop) when you fruit them. See if you can find something to bring the temp up. And since you are going to have to spend money for temp issue later, buy a tub and an aquarium heater and make yourself a TnT.

Good luck!

Try wrapping a clean blanket or towel around your jars. The myc produces a small amount of heat itself while colonizing the jars so best bet is to try to insulate that and keep thier natural heat in. It's not much but it should help some. GL to yas

Ontop of my fridge seems to generate a bit of heat, enough to germinate seeds. I'm guessing it would work for colonizing mycelium. It might just be my crappy fridge though.
Something to look into anyway.

Keep your jars in the dark. You don't want to lose another pin trigger(light) from trying to compensate for first loss.

Remember that PF Teks were originally calling for 70F incubation temp.

Thank you for your help. This may sound dumb, but for a minor temp drop i could have crushed ice in ziploc bags away from the jars, but inside the cooler. They are in complete darkness, a cooler wrapped in a blanket.

I'm a little confused... was there a question in there? Cuz, we are talking about raising temp for incubation...

No, no question, you said the PF Tek said 70 degrees for incubation, which is less than what i'll have for mycelium growth. Wait, is incubation mycelium growth? I feel like a newb, lol.

Check the older Teks. I know them fairly well after having them as only reading material in my bathrooms for weeks. They call for incubation in the dark around 70F. Of course, the best temp we know from experience is 82-86F.

Yes, incubation is the term that is used to refer to the period of time when the mycelium is colonizing inside the PF jars. Just to clear things up a bit if you were getting confused. It can be a bit overwhelming at first.
