Quick Question
    #4350521 - 06/29/05 02:31 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

Ok, so i thought i had my incubater set right last night. When i went to bed at 2 am it was set to 83.9 deg F. When i woke up at 10 am and checked the temp it was @ 100 deg F!! SHIT!! Did i just fry my jars? BTW im using the TiT method, i took the top tub off the water and cracked the lid to air out the jars and move some cool air in them. They are now currently back to the normal temp. Damn, not two days into this already and ive already fucked up big time hehe. Advice?

they will be ok.

just get the inside temps of your incubator in the 81 to 84 degree F. range.

Yea I agree, they should be ok, but later on you may have problems pinning. Depending upon whether or not you already had some mycelium growth. (I.E. I put my PF jars in my incubator after they had already started colonizing.) Other than that, I don't think you should worry. It's possible that high heat could cause mutations in the DNA of the spores but this is unlikely at 100 degrees. Spores are hearty for a reason....

thank you both for the quick reply and for the relief you've given me. Since i just noc'ed yesterday i have no mycellium growth (although that would have be a wicked sweet present to find when i woke up). They are now currently chilling at 84 degrees, a little moisture on the inside of some jars, but thats about it. I went out and bought a wireless therm so that i could keep an eye on the temp from almost anywhere in my house. Thanks again guys!

well the moisture in the jars is a good sign...means that the substrate didn't dry out much.

yah regarding proper substrate saturation. Should it feel like wet/damp sand when you prepare it. When i tilted my bowl i saw a little bit of water come out but really not much more then 5-6 drops forming a small pool. Is that correct?

Perfect moisture. :thumbup: You can find all of this in the search feature here. There is probably no question that hasn't been answered.

It sounds like you are using cakes. if so just use the correct formula for the pf tek
1/4 cup brown rice flour
1/2 cup vermiculite
1/4 cup water

should be very pasty

^^ yah thats what i used, im using the pf tek for simple minds along with the measures from another PF style tek (pf for simple minds has measures in ml, the one i used has measures in cups). I understand the question has probably been asked, but both the teks didnt have list what the consistency should feel like. The reason i asked is because i felt like i didnt have enough water, the 4-5 drops seemed to be just bordering on the threshold but i held back and didnt add anymore. Sorry, dont mean to clutter up the board.
