need some helph
    #3998448 - 04/01/05 02:54 AM (12 years, 1 day ago)

ok, im about to start growing some mushrooms for the first time. im goign to use vermeculite and brown rice flower for my cakes and my chamber is basically like the The Economy Semi-Automated Terrarium setup only with a very tall lid to try and get long stems.

my first question is, will one fish tnak air pump be enough for the mushrooms or will i still need to take the lid off once or twice a day for fanning?

my second question concers the temp. my thermometer usually reads 68-72F. is this too cool for the B+ strain? will it effect size and potency? also, is it possble to cold shock the B+ strain? ive herd some strains can take very low temps and not get cold shocked.

There is a chart ( sorry I dont have the link ) on the site, which shows the ideal temps for cubensis. It showed 86 degs F being the ideal temp ( I am having alot of trouble reaching this temp, I was running WAY too hot ) at 70 degs it will take a while for your cakes to cultivate, at 95 you will evap off your water, and at 105 you will fry your spores, which I may have done last night. =(
I hope I have been helpful.

68-72 is wayyyy to low not wayy to low but its very very low and colonization will take forever!

one fish tank air pump will be suitable and no fanning will be needed with it

also the nutrients in your cakes not the size of your terrarium will determine how long ure stems get and brown rice flour cakes typically do not support very big shroomz

I found 2 links for you.

As I learned the very hard and painful way, Test your heating setup before inoculation to ensure that your spores will not be burnt off. I think 1 or 2 of my jars may have survived the 'heater incident'. I will be switching over to the 'heat bomb' or the 'tub in tub' *TiT* tek.
