Terrarium temperature setting at 81 to 84.
    #4429594 - 07/20/05 07:46 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

ok Just so that I could save a little money. I have started out with my Terr. on top of my computer tower. Lava rocks in bottom with about 3/4 of an inch to wick up the water. The setup at the present looks great. The humidity feels right and the temp is around 81 to 84. From what I've read and what I can afford at this moment in time. I guess I just want to hear some yays on nays.

A little on the high side, but they will probably still fruit ok. Maybe consider a cold shock(if you have'nt already) if pins don't show up after  about a week. my two pennies. GL :biggrin: :mushroomgrow:

I had a batch fruit at about 80. Definetly not optimal temps, but they still turned out decent. But Road is right(of course)that is getting up there.

I just fruited my South American's in the 80 to 90's...

but not all strains handle heat well.


GT did terrible in this heat wave we are having!~

optimal temps are 73 to 76 degrees F.

Just what I wanted to know about the temp. So, are you suggesting 78 ? By the way this is B+.
What is optimal for GT colonization.

78 is alot better than 83. What strain are you working with?
