Temp Problem
    #4578433 - 08/25/05 12:39 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

Ok im going crazy over here the room I have my colonizing jars in is about 75 degrees so I put a heater and the heater shuts off after it reaches certain temp which is 75 degrees so I removed the thermostat and now it gets too hot. How can I keep the room at a steady 86 degrees ???

i found some research indicating that 86 F is actually too hot and can retard myc growth. don't use the heater without a thermostat, thas dangerous! 77 - 82 F is preferred.

Removing a thermostat from an electric heater, is a great way to start a fire, burn the house down, or at the very least - pop fuses out - all the time. WARNING = FIRE HAZARD.

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."

If $$$$ is an issue. Check Thrift stores for a little electric heater, with a thermostat that you can adjust to a certain temperature & it will maintain it.

willis thank you for the concern and I agree never use a heater without a thermostat but you must read up on optimum temps for incubation and fruiting, so we're all on the same page 82-84F. is optimum for incubating this is taking into account the heat (very little) created by the jars themselves during the spawn run. Fruiting temps are 74-77F. these temps haven't and will not change anytime in the future. FYI
