Did I kill my spres?
    #4750381 - 10/03/05 06:48 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I thought my attic would be the right timp so after I shot up a new batch of jars with spores and i put them up there. I also had a thermometer u there I and I checked after a few hours and it was 94 degrees. Did I kill them?

Spores can withstand much higher temps than 106
It's the mycellium that begins to die at 106 but even then, most will survive short periods of higher temps.

I would get your jars out of there. They should still be ok if they were up there for a short period.

Although an attic seems like a nice and stealthy place to grow, the temps in an attic, especially in the summer, can hit well over 110 deg and fluctuate during different times of the day.

If you don't have anywhere else available to you to put your jars, put them in a box sealed off from light, and put them on top of your fridge.

You are not the first person to make the mistake of trying to colonize/grow in an attic. I have had a few friends lose a bunch of jars before they realized that the temps up there change drastically.

I monitored mine a while ago and the temps went from 50 at night to 116 during the day....but that was in the spring....temps outside were only about 70F.
GL TO YA!!

Besides the temps, an attic isn't the cleanest place for you to keep your jars.

ouch hell no i wouldn't use the attic just buy couple of rubber maid tubs fish tnak heater gzz guys don't be fucking cheap..man you can't have dust dirt all around your jars guys, might as well just not even spend the money to buuy the syringes... takes alot of work and exp. to do this why waste your time with obviuos methods where you know the heat is extreme temps.
