HELP!! temp questions!
    #456878 - 11/13/01 12:19 PM (15 years, 30 days ago)

In the instructions i have it said to keep the temp of the aquarium between 78 and 82 degrees for the first 5-10 days. Is it o.k if it gets a little higher or lower than that? I try to keep it at 80 but i came home last night and it had fallen to 74. will this hurt them since its so early or can the temp. change a little as long as most of the time its in between 78 and 80? I'm a newbie and i need all the help I can get!! any advice would be awesome! :)

Peace

I dont think that it will hurt if it fluctuates a bit. The only problems with the temprature doing that is that 1.you might have a little slower colonization, no big deal and 2. when it comes time to initiate pinning you might not have enough of a temprature drop to ddo so. Also no big deal cause you can just throw them outside(if its cold enough) or in a fridge for a day to cold shock.

420-
Its ok to have the lower temps, but as blahblah mentioned, it will be harder to get the severe temp drop that ininates pinning to occur if you are practically there- Next time, shine a regular light into the tank, the bulb gets hot , and will keep temps up, you can get one of those clip on jobs at your local general store or in an art supply store - a 75 watt + will do. Or, if you havce some money to blow, get your self a heating pad with timer and temp controls
Good luck

Cubensis will fruit within a broad temperature range. No external temperature drop is neccessary to initiate pinning.
Colonization and fruiting will be slower at 74 F than at 80 F.
Cubensis will fruit at a constant temperature consistent with colonization temperatures. No COLD SHOCK is required. Some spore races are more sensitive than others.
As the mycelium completes it's colonization of the substrate, it's INTERNAL temperatures will automatically decline, due to a decline in FOOD and hence growth rate. This in itself is enough to trigger fruiting. Temperature range is an optimization factor for cubensi. It is not a neccesity. As long as your temperatures remain above a critical level and below a critical level, you will be successful. Critical being DEATH TEMPERATURE EXTREMES. Cold shocking is a requirement for alot of cold weather mushrooms, but cubensis is not one of these.
Temperature determines growth rate all things being equal.
Fruiting with cubensis is more determined by nutrient deprivation, which natural occurs as the mycelium completes it's colonization of the substrate.
Ever get invitro pins inside of a closed jar held at a constant temperature? YES YES YES YES
