To the new growers using the PF-Tek
    #846378 - 08/27/02 10:28 AM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Just like to share something. I know most people already know this, but still, doesn't hurt to give more first hand experience.

Im on my first grow, using Pf-Tek. I decided to put 4 jars in my closet, and 6 in a box, on top of my computer where much heat is generated.

Needless to say, the 4 in the closet have mycelium growth ranging from 10-30% after 12 days. Id say the temperature was about 65 fahrenheit.

In the box on top of my computer, the temperature is about low 70's, and ALL of the 6 jars have colonization ranging from 50-85%.

Just thought I'd share this with you guys who are new, temperature makes a BIG difference.

I have now moved all 10 of my jars in the box above my monitor which generates more heat than the computer, with a cloth over the top to keep in heat.

Oh, and none of my jars have come close to drying out, they have all retained their moisture.

Sorry if this post seemed obvious, but I felt it couldnt hurt

You're right - keeping close to the optimal growing conditions for your particular species of mushroom really does make a huge difference. My cat used to put his jars in a box on a shelf over his stereo receiver, and that worked really well for him.

Good advice.

My cat kept hers in the closet. It's around 80 f in there and her jars colonized in about three weeks.

Say, can I have some of your purple berries?
Yes, I've been eating them, for six or seven weeks now, haven't got sick once.

i got an aquarium heater ... you can set it to exactly the temp you want, and it will heat a large volume of water to that temp... then i just submerge a container in the water with my jars in there..so theyre always surrounded by just right temp. worked great!

My friend also keeps his above his monitor, but has to take them off and on in equal intervals. Monitors can get real hot depending on what size, make, etc. Be careful, and take temperature readings, heat will speed them up, but too much heat can be bad.
