Sclerotia and temperature

How does temperature affect the production of sclerotia.

Stable strain spesific incubation temperatures during the entire duration of sclerotia formation will help ensure more uniform and fully developed sclerotia.

What is the reason that a mushroom produces sclerotia.
Is it because something - like temp for example - isn't quite right
and the mushroom tries to overcome this with forming sclerotia
or do some shrooms produce sclerotia without environmental influence.

hope this doesn't sound like a thread hijack - i've had fully colonised ryegrass bags for three months, and was wondering if it's possible to harvest sclerotia and fruits from the same bag. Una's handy info is currently offline, unfortunately, but i don't think i've seen this explicitly addressed anywhere.

i'm assuming after all this time that some sclerotia have now formed - so if i now coldshock the bag for three months, then lay it out and case it, can i get fruits as well (doing all the necessary casing/environment triggers) - harvesting the sclerotia from the casing once all is finished? or are they mutually exclusive?

:laugh:

It's one or the other. I have never seem both harvested, as the bag content gets hard (like solid overlay hide), as the sclerotia form, grow & get fat.

Typical bag colonization time is about a month ----->when incubated properly<------. Most sclerotia producing species reach their peak harvesting potential within 4-8 months.

If the mushroom falls in the sclerotia state it will be a long time
capable to produce fruitings if the conditions become right.
But the more I watch closely how some strains behave and the more
I read about this subject the more questions arise.
Simplifying the whole thing leads to a simple question:
assuming a mushroom grows in nearly perfect environment, why should
it produce sclerotia instead of completing its lifecycle.

If one looks at rye grass seed for example, why should it be the
best to grow psi. mexicana. It tends to dry out, isn't that much nutritious and tends to agglutinate.
May this cause the mycel to produce sclerotia ?
Searching the shroomery shows that the best fruitings came out from
rye grain or straw with a very poor sclerotia appearance.
