Air Conditioner broke...questions
    #4462027 - 07/28/05 12:14 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I have a couple casings that were birthed on last Sat. They were nicely colonized and ready to go.

Monday, our air conditioner went out. They had been in a 10 degree drop and light conditions and air exchanges a few times a day for about 48 hours.

Now they are only getting one exchange a day (all i can get over there for...staying with family now), and the temps are up from 72 to 85-90.

How might this affect the growth? The cases don't look to have started fruiting...no primordia or pins, but are continuing to grow.

Am I right to think that I'll probably have some overlay? In that case I'll just deepscratch...I still think they can be saved.

Any suggestions?

They have fresh ice bags put in the chamber each day, so that keeps the temps down to about 80 for a few hours until it melts then the temps go back up towards the 90s.

I've had this happen, and they may still fruit, it will just take longer. What I did was the same as you. I rotated two frozen two liters at a time until better measures could be taken.
