HELP! PC Ecuadors First Time using PF Tek
    #3583793 - 01/05/05 01:15 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Alright, so this is my first time cultivating. I ordered 2 10cc of PC Ecuador from THE and i am using the PF Tek guide from http://www.erowid.org/plants/mushrooms/mushrooms_mmgg.shtml

The recommended strain is Amazonian. Everything i've read says that Ecuadors are easy for first timer's which is why I chose them. I have all the equipment i need (though i'm not exactly sure how I am going to design my terrarium yet) But i can't find any definive answers about Temperature during the colonization stage. Also I have read that these will grow best at 86F. I live in the NorthEast and it's generally cold, my apartment has electric heat, so it will be difficult to maintain that high of a temperature for long.

If anyone has any suggestions about these I'll take any advice you have. I especially would like to know temperature settings for colonization stage and temp and humidity for the growing stage.

Optimal colonization temps: 84-86F
Optimal fruiting temps/RH for cakes: 74-76F / 95-98% RH

Look in to Tub in Tub(TnT) setups for ways of keeping your jars at the right temps throughout colonization. :thumbup:

If you can keep your place heated to around 76-80 with your toaster (elec heat strips ) you will be okay , not optimal but okay .Need to go gas or HP much more efficient IMHO . :wink:
Beetle gave you the optimal ranges , remeber myc produces a little heat so the ambient temp of the incubator needs to be a couple degrees less .

in a room heated to between 70 and 80F, they do quite well. Hotter than that and they start to suffer. Heating the room to 86 will make the interior of the jars much hotter because the cakes themselves generate heat.

I recommend setting the temp at 80 for best colonisation.

Thanks for the advice. With a space heater i should be able to get to 80 consistently. Recommendations for the humidity and temp in the terrarium? I've read 90% is optimal, same temperature (86)
