question about chronic tek and room temp
    #965375 - 10/16/02 07:27 AM (18 years, 11 months ago)

Hi all, nice to see you again. My friend would like to try the chronic tek and he has one concern: in the tek it stresses the importance of keeping the room temp to as close to 76 degrees as possible. It said that if the temp is too low then the humidity will not be high enough in the airspace in the quart jar, but that the water will be on the glass itself, and the shrooms will get too low humidity.

Has anyone tried this tek successfully at room temp (70 degrees)? Maybe chronic just made assumptions, I dunno. The temp in my friend's room varies from 70 to 73, and he is worried that the humidity inside the quart jars will be too low. Thanks a lot!

Each time I grow a batch I have a few cakes left over, so I just stick them in jars via the Chronic Tek. The temperature in the area where I keep my jars has varied between 68F and 92F over the last several months, and I have had nice flushes throughout these temp fluctuations. I dunk the cakes immediately after birthing and after each flush.

Over the last few weeks the natural temp and humidity has dropped a lot and my Chronic cakes are drying out rapidly, but I live in a very arid climate, about 30% rh.

Good luck.  :smile:

oh ok I hadn't considered that the outside humidity level would affect the one inside the house. But I guess it goes through walls etc.

Question though: would humidity be kept higher if he were to not drill the 4 holes in the lid as per the chronic tek? What if he did invitro but in a quart jar, and no holes at all? It would be like hippie's neglect tek but with room to open caps. Would that make any difference in the humidity level inside the quart jars?

Thanks

One of the factors that initiates pinning is fresh air exchange. If you eliminate the bottom holes you may inhibit pin formation. A quart jar has a lot of airspace though, so who knows?

if it were the case that air was absolutely needed for pinning, then hippie's neglect tek wouldn't work too well :-)

Hippies Neglect Tek is simply the PF Tek without birthing, and the PF Tek calls for punching holes in the lid of the jar. :tongue:
