How hot?
    #3949652 - 03/21/05 05:34 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

Is it ok if my terrarium reaches 100 degrees F for like 4 hours every day? Im using cakes and casing. At night the temp drops to 65. Also what temp does mycelium die at? I forgot if its like 107 or something. I tried to search but couldnt find the specific awnser.

well, it depends on what you're doing. 100 degrees is REAL hot reguardless, even for people...

if you're just doing cakes the increase/decrease in temperatures might actually help initiate pinning, i dont think death will occur if its less than 4 hours at that temperature, but try as best you can to keep it in the 70s/room temperature. its okay if its 65, i know that much for sure.

if youre doing casings 100 degress is going to be way to fuckin hot and your mycellium will probably just keep growing and growing through the casing layer (no good).

im going to say you'll PROBABLY be okay with cakes because my mycellium was exposed to heat in the 90s over the summer and it didnt die. casings it def wont work for.

well, in my experiences with casings, that is WAY too hot. the mycellium wont ever stop growing and you'll have terrible terrible overlay.

straight verm for what? do you mean thats your casing layer or do you mean you're rolling your cakes in verm?

well im gonna say its gonna be too hot for casings, but i dont think it will kill your mycellium, thats just my experiences though.  you might have some overlay to deal with, and maybe you'll be okay, but im gonna say the mycellium is gonna take over your casing layer.  good luck though :thumbup:
