What is the max temp while colonizing?
    #4429493 - 07/20/05 07:16 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Hi, my first post. I did successfully grow the Colorado strain, after the third flush, the mushrooms keep getting bigger.

I am starting my 2nd strain of Pink Buffalo. My question is, what is the max temp my PF jar of PB can take before the spores "die". I built an incubator last night to get them warmer but I turned the dial to a higher temp instead of lower, I read that the temp in there should be 80 degrees. However, when I got up this morning, the temp was 92 degrees and my hubby said that would kill the spores in the PF jars. I took them out and it is so hot today in the basement but its been in the low 80s.

So did I just mess up because of the high temp during colonization? I injected the spores about a week ago and it is colonizing nicely other than that high temp last night.

Tell hubby that spores can take temps as high and higher than 50C. (122F.) Thermo death limits of mycleium have been establish at 106F. But all is relative temp, duration, species, etc; GL

92 degrees won't matter, as long as they don't get above 100 for very long they will be fine. If you left them at 92 it would just take a very long time to colonize. A friend of mine accidently let them get a little over 100F for a couple of hours, brought the temp back down to 80-85 and everything finished just fine.
