Cold Shocking when using an Incubator
    #583453 - 03/19/02 04:41 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

I have several jars that are almost fully colonized. I was curious about cold shocking so I read a shitload of posts. Many people say that its not nessicary with cubes. Some people also say that there should be a 10 degree temp drop.

Im using an incubator. The temp in there stays right around 83 degrees (85 in jars). Now, since cold shocking dictates 10 degrees less, wouldnt putting them in a 75 degree terrarium be the equivalent of cold shocking? I realize that this would be almost a permenent cold shock. I also realize that some people go to extremes and put them in the fridge but i think thats a little overkill.

Is the connection I made wrong or is there some validity to this reasoning.

i wish i could give out my thoughts
let someone else feel them
and experience who i am
its difficult
sometimes impossible
always impossible?
i hope not

Yes, the move from incubator to fruiting chamber is often enough for a cold shock.
