Live mycelium @ 108F !!!!!!!!
    #4102362 - 04/27/05 12:52 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

I made a huge freakin blunder the other day. I placed a small space heater (on the lowest setting) in my grow room (walk-in closet) to see if it would be more effective at maintaining a steady room temp than my heating pad. I was going to check it about every 5 minutes to make sure the temp wasn't going to high but I got a call from my girlfriend and forgot about it being in there. I went to bed and went to work the next day. When I got home I went to check on it and remembered the heater right before i opened the door. I thought I had lost my casings in the incubation chamber and the one tray I had fruiting it's fourth flush. I opened the door and it was like opening the over door. The fruiting chamber was at 108F and the incubation chamber was at 102F. I cooled down the room as fast as I could and stuck the casing from the fruiting chamber into the fridge (just incase). I left it in the fridge over night and then put it back in the fruiting chamber. It had about five, 1/4 inch immature fruits on it before I "baked" the shit out of it. The next day I went to through it away expecting to find a dead tray but there were three new fruits about the same size as the other ones!!!! Of course the other fruits had been baked to death and looked dead. I cleaned the dead fruits off and placed the tray back in the fruiting chamber. I read some where that mycelium death accurs @ 106F. If this is true then why is my tray still fruiting after being @ 108F ?? (my thermometer is accurate)

not all of its gonna instantly die when it hit 106.

I can take a long time to kill an entire casing at that temp. But you did kill some of the myc just not all of it.

Maybe it didn't reach 106F on the surface? Or maybe just the outside but it didn't affect the network within because that was cooler.. or something

The casing was only 3in x 5in x 3in and it was @ 108 for about 18 hours. It was my first/trial run casing.

I stuck another thermometer into the casings center and it read 108F.

I'm not sure which kind of space heater you're using, but many are very dangerous and shouldn't be left on unattended... you should count yourself lucky that you didn't burn the place down...

Ya, like what Goofy said, it won't all die at once.  It's actually interesting that once the temperature reaches lethal levels, you start playing a probability game where only a certain percentage of cells will die in a given amount of time (and obviously the higher the temperature, the higher the percentage). 

So I guess since you were only slightly above the lethal temperature, most of the mycelia lived to fruit another day  :wink:
