Too cold?
    #390151 - 09/10/01 01:05 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

First wanted to say I think this board is great for first-time growers like myself, it makes me feel much more comfortable. I'm using the MMGG, inoculated 8 days ago and things are looking good. I plan on using the ultra-sonic humidifier method but here's the problem. I live in upstate New York and the people who live in my apartment insist on not turning the heat on until Thanksgiving (to save money), which makes for a very cold end-of-October and November. I got the spores from PF- is there a minimum suggested temperature for growing? And if need be, should I instead of picking up an ultra-sonic humidifier, get one that can warm the air?

A flourescent light sitting directly atop the terrarium should warm things up. I've always used just perlite. Maybe someone else can answer your question. By the way, not until Thanksgiving? I live in upstate NY as well and that's COLD!

Get one of those little room heaters at Wal Mart or something. Depending on how big your growing room is, these little heaters can, in my friend's experience, heat a room that is about twice the size of an average closet to around 82 when the surrounding temp in the rest of the house/apartment is much, much cooler than that - can't hurt anyway. Get a little room heater, get a small and fairly enclosed grow area - note that when I say enclosed, if it is TOO small and enclosed your heater will shut off. Leave some door open or something. Experiment for a little while with pen and notebook and ambient-air thermometer in the area for a few days in various configurations till you get something you are confident will work well.

Note that if you have your setup on or near floor level, the heat will be more directly on them and will be a few degrees warmer than how you might have measured the ambient air.

Good luck.
