Its too hot out
    #609411 - 04/15/02 10:01 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Theres this gnome who some guy told me about and he has this territatrium but right now its too hot out and he doesn't have anyway to cool the territarium as it is in the high 70's currently outside. Inside the terrutarium it is a tad bit over 80 degrees and this is no good for growing his mushrooms. Can anyone think of any way to cool it down other than via ice cubes?

the past couple of days its been in the high 70's low 80's where i live, and i have a fish tank heater in my shits, the temp read about 82 earlier today, and lemmie tell you my mushies were lovin every second of it. i lowered it a bit tonight cause it was gettin near mid 80's in there. i dont think high 70's is a problem at all, in fact thats real ideal for mushrooms to grow, look at my avitar(sp) they were growin in the low 80s, and they seemed to like it. good luck.

Try using cold packs instead of ice cubes, they're a lot less messy. Misting the outside of the terrarium will cool it a bit as evaporation removes heat. I read the ideal temp for growing most types is 82, but the weather outside could get hot. Here in Toronto we went overnight from normal of 11c to today's hot hazy humid high of 29c. That's Florida weather and this is only April. Fortunately the house is ice cold with central air. I told you people el nino would do this to us. Lots of high humidex days and lots of rain.

I've been having psilly dreams lately
