Summer in Zone 5-6 too hot for cubes?
    #4280007 - 06/10/05 02:54 PM (13 years, 11 days ago)

I live in Southern IL, climate zone 5, but close to 6. It's been in the low-mid 90's during the day lately. It does get pretty humid here though. Id say average day time temps range from 80-95. Nightime is about 65-75. Is this weather too hot to grow some cubes outdoors if i keep them watered regularly and grow from horse poo/WBS? I would try to water them everyday assuming it didn't rain. WOuld i really need to water them that often though?

I'd water every now and then...I'm pretty sure they'd grow.

90F sounds rather warm though..If the myc. gets past 96F, death occurs..

Maybe plant in some shrubs or ferns? Shade would do them best.

I have a very shady spot in my back yard. It's actually the neighbors, but they would never get back there. It's super overgrown and stuff. It's basically about 2-4 big trees/bushes that they never trim. It is completely shaded under it all and will be perfect to grow in.
