mycelium death @ 90 F?
« on: February 11, 2009, 03:04:44 PM »

i'm a little concerned because i left for work and forgot to turn off my space heater and my room got freakin hot; i read somewhere that mycelium death occurs at around 90 degrees F. is that true? (seems like it would be a bit higher)

Fattrout it right, but for optimal growth for mycelium is 86f. 4 degree's warmer inside the jars, set inc. around 78-82. As long as you steralized everything properly you should be allright with the opt. temp.
