Gas Exchange During Spawn Run Question??
    #4083719 - 04/22/05 03:23 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Just spawned some grain to compost. Substrate is in a rubbermaid container, closed, within an incubator (80 degrees to allow some internal heating rise). How important is it to have some air-exchange possibilities? I don't really want to leave the inner container open or loosely wrapped for fear of contams, but I also don't want to inhibit growth.

Let me know, all you experienced shroomers out there...

thanks.

Very important.

And, compost will heat by itself quite a bit when colonizing, I would take it out of the incubator.

OK.. How's this: took the lids off, put one layer of tin foil, poked some holes, put another layer loosely on top. then put the two substrate containers, stacked, back into the larger tub, but turned off the heating. will that be sufficient, even though they are both within the larger container?

So, without heat, the temp in the chamber is around 75 degrees. is that alright?

Yep, sounds fine...I'd try and put it somewhere warm too (like a closet or cabnent) so it stays insulated with its own heat well. It should either way..

Yup, scatmanrav--it is in a closet, within a large rubbermaid container. should be relatively insulated. there are also some jars a shelf above incubating, so that raises the temperature slightly in the whole closet.
