hope they don't cook themselves/self-incubator

I just recently did some birdseed. I went against most advice and accomplished it without the aid of a PC. The taz honeywater didn't make it. The SF-1 did though. So i have three jars of that.. i accidently poked a hole through the filter though today. So i have two.

Anyways.. all i did was wrap them up in a blanket and stash them in a cooler. At first they were room temp. But when they got a little colonized they just cooked. I'm probably thinking right at 85 or 86. I don't know if hotter. Just wondering if you guys think they could actually cook themselves? I thought it would probably be pretty impossible. But they are in a room that's prolly about 70-75 but they are very warm to hold makes me feel like i got a baby. The taz's fell ill to green bacteria. But some strong white fuzz from the SF-1 still.

Anyone suggest a good casing? with the strain verm i heard has worked best. I'm assuming potency is reportedly better. Since most of the pros use it

I dont think they could get hotter as coloniztion occurs. Maybe a few degrees, but I really dont know I geuss.

Id think casing with coir is much better from straight verm. There isint any potency difference between casings. Only substrate will determine slight potency differneces.

Coir is easy to use and verm I hear will contaminate easier. Try a mix if ya want to get the best of both worlds. Verm retains water better as mycelium rips through coir.

sorry.. i meant the birdseed was reportedly better for potency.. just jumbled it up with the casing.. i apologize. I have some miracle grow with the aqua coir.. i heard that suggested once..
