Heat Problem ?
    #941925 - 10/08/02 07:38 AM (14 years, 20 days ago)

for colonizing a myco grow bag would a reptile heating pad thing work if i put it underneath the box that the myco bag is in? theres already a fish tank heater in a plastic pitcher of water that doesnt seem to be working very well, the temp is around 80 right now, is that enough for colonizing?

Those are meant to be attached under an aquarium , do not think would work under cardboard .
Try putting your box above the fridge , or maybe over your stove/oven , I do this do to sun hits that area of house , which helps with ambient temps , at night when it cools down dinner is cooked kicking up temp enough to get thru to next day .
80*F will be okay , just not at peak growth temp (86*F) , so will be a "little" slower .
Good Luck

Any information I give is not intended to aide you in the production of potentialy illegal substances !None of my exp comes from growing illegal varities , so take it as you will .
So with that said here is our mission statement .

80F should be fine for bags, as colonization proceeds the substrate will begin producing heat (thermogenesis), if internal substrate temps get much above 95F thermophilic contams such as black pin mold & various bacterium could awaken, though this is rare.
if you do decide to use a reptile pad, be sure to place a towel or something on top of it, those things can get wicked hot & cook the bottom of the bags
