Hot Climate Question
    #3697915 - 01/29/05 12:57 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I live in a place currently experiencing our normal 30c to 40+c (86f to 104+f) summer and am looking at starting my first growing attempt sometime soon. Since incubation requires 27c maximum I'll have to find a way to decrease and maintain the temperature. I've looked high and low across this great site and forums and can only find information on increasing the temperature for incubation.

I could wait until winter, some 4 or 5 months from now, when we average temperatures above and below 27c(84f), but I'd prefer not to have to wait if I can help it.

Money is not really a problem, I'm willing to invest what it takes to get a good system going. Any help on the matter would be appreciated.

you said money isnt a problem, so go buy an a/c and youll lower your temps and youll be more comfortable.

Hmm I guess if there's no other alternative I will have to. Can anyone think of a solution short of forking out multiple thousands of dollars on A/C?

Dude if it costs you multi thousands of dollars for a little window banger unit for a single room you need to learn to shop better.

This kind would probably be best.

But window ones are even cheaper.

They can be had anywhere..home depot, lowes, sears, garage sales, ect.

Get a cooler and put a jar of ice in there. You'll have to experiment to find the right size jar for the size of cooler and temperatures. I did this to cold shock and with a good cooler you'll need to add ice once or twice a day (guesstimate). Or you could just try to grow em at room temperature, I bet they'll do just fine.

In 104 degrees hed need to replace ice like every hour or two. Ice packs work and you can have them on a rotation...or a couple 2 liters filled with water and frozen and switched out too...but your still gonna have to do that every few hours in that sort of heat. Still your only talking about incubation...you'll have a much harder time trying to fruit in that sort of temps and you'll need to do that as well. So do you really want to be switching out 2 liters of ice 10 times a day for the next 8 weeks?

Older second hand refridgerators, in working order are cheap & are both good incubators & fruiting chambers.

Would an old refridgerator be able to sustain a 27degree temperature? I didn't think you could set them that high.

The cats first grow was PF style, done in June with daytime temps averaging 104-107. He put his jars in a closet and left them there. Colonization was achieved in less than 4 weeks. Temps this high will certainly not speed colonization, but neither will they halt it.

What about fruiting though, would that be possible at such high temperatures?

Can you dig a hole in your basement? (Dirt floor) or under a porch... or any-where outside?

Just dig a hole that is big enough to hold a styrofaom cooler. Cover it with some wood.

The ground stays a constant 65F-75F in the summer time. (Aproximate surface temp.) The cooler will keep stuff from getting inside. Just make sure that the cakes are inside a seporate container, not directly inside the foam... or BAG-IT with a heavy-duty garbage bag.

I am sure that it isn't 105F in your house... you would not live long.

An AC unit can be purchased for about $60.00 USD new. You can find old working ones on the side of the road for free, but they might be noisy, or energy hogs.

Do you have a basement?

B+ has been known to incubate above 85F and fruit at that same temp. It is a rather kind strain. (Best results are incubation at 80-85F and fruiting at 70-75F, for higher yield and less trouble.)
