shall i fruit this case now ???!!
    #891036 - 09/18/02 01:23 PM (15 years, 9 months ago)

hey, this is a simple half pint cased with plain vermiculite.....its been in the incubator for 2days now....is it time to fruit?

i read in the FAQ that u shudnt let the myc* colonize all of the casing layer because it will cause overlay...so is this about right to fruit or what?

also, ive been having problems with the temp in my fruiting chamber, it is going to have to be either 68f or 80f.....which is best?, or shud i try harder for 75f?

cheers for any help

Zed

hang on, im just readin up on how to post pics....a pic will be up in a min

why is 68 and 80 ur only choices? then pick 80. it may not even fruit at 68 or take forever. 80 sounds ideal.

chrz for replies lads....

its beacuse 68f is the average room temp here......or if i use the heating pad that my incubator is sat on it rises to 80F (and thats with plenty of padding between the fruiting chamber and heating pad).

Try to raise the thermostat and if you can't do that, try to close the air vent.

my fruiting chamber at the moment is a big tub with about 3inch layer of perlite on bottom....a fan on the top programmed to fan for 15secs every 4hours...and hand misting.

so i dont have a thermostat as of yet.

I'm talking about your AC's thermostat. If you can't regulate the temperature in your room, you have to be creative. I think the best solution would be to use an aquarium heater. For more information, try this:Peace
