What type of growth, strain etc... Any ill or strange effects? This is something that I have just taken as fact from mushroom literature, don't know why, I seem to test everything else. I used to have a theory that cubensis could live at much higher temps, but it's growing substrate became too dry at the higher temps. Remember, not everything you read is true, it's just someone's opinion waiting to be proven wrong. How many people in this world have _ACTUALY_ tested how hot cubensis gulf coast strain or other, can get. Might find something intresting in the high heat, like lack of competing bacteria? (doubtful). Come to think of it. I just saw my friends cubies fruiting just fine in 113 F last night, I turned the heat down, but maybe I should have left it?? -Capt'n

That is in fact interesting. I know that you are speaking of the colinization of the substrate phase, but I have been thinking about the effects of temprature on potency. It seems to me that cubes fruited at lower temps seem to be more potent. I of course have no hard core evidence or scientific analysis to back this claim up. Over the summer with the air conditioner on I had a hard time keeping the temps on the old terrium above 72. My PF strain grew very slowly in the fruiting chamber, yet I had some of my most potent batches to date. I have had a few batches since the heat is back on in the house and they are all good, in fact they grow much faster, but there seemed to be something a little special about the slow going cold temps of the air conditioned house this summer. When I am comparing, I am talking about shrooms grown the exact same way.
Last spring.. outside in the greenhouse, I had the "A" strain fruiting at 105F constant temps during the day.... only dropped to around 90f at night here in AZ. The second flush they were fruiting at 112F daytime. I had a few other strains in there with them that didn't fruit at all. but the A didnt seem to mind it to much. I also read some reports sometime back that the Plantasia strain fruited for someone outdoors in mid summer when they least expected it. And the temps were above 100F, and they fruited several times. I'll be testing different strains out in the heat again late spring.
As for shrooms growing more potent in the cold. I completly agree and this time of year is my favorite for growing outdoors because I can control the temps easier and let the mushrooms grow slower, and in my opinion are always more potent when grown outdoors in the colder temps. I'm sure this apply to indoor growing in cooler temps. My theory is they grow slower haveing more time to develop their genetics to their fullest. I have especially noticed this to be true of the B+ strain. It grows completly different outdoors in the cold then indoors in the average cubenis temps of 85F. Indoors grown warm and fast, it has the typical white stem and lighter tan color cap. Outdoors in the cold, it grows extremely thick caramel color stems, and large caramel color caps. Looks absolutly beautiful. There are some pics on my website of the B+ grown indoors and outdoors showing the difference.
