Higher temps will speed colonization to some degree. Best way to speed colonization though is to put a little dry verm in the bottom of the jars when you prepare them and inoc with a mycelium solution rather than spores. Super fast colonization.

Come check out the new Mycotopia

Why the dry verm on the bottom? I've only ever heard of useing dry verm as an air barrier at the top of you jars.
