Fruiting temperature
« on: June 08, 2009, 06:07:48 AM »

Hi, first time grower here and am worried about my cakes. Fully colonized and have been in the fruiting chamber (a clear plastic box with holes and perlite in the bottom) for a whole week now, the cakes have developed a kind of white fur round the outside (which I assume to be normal) but have not begun to pin. I read on a different site that the temperature MUST be between 75 and 80 degrees for them to pin, yet the room temperature where I am is around 70- 72 (as it is summer). The strand is Thai, might I add. Will they grow with the temperature as it is?? If not does anyone know how I can make them warm enough to grow, because I can't think of any way to warm the surrounding air up effectively. Any help would be appreciated!

like he said, 70-72 should be okay. Did you dunk your cake before putting them in the FC?

Davie,
  As far as the cubes are concerned,......  Forget the fridge!  I have seen they will fruit in just about ANY environment, as long as they get their FAE, and moisture and don't exceed 90 degrees.  They grow quick at higher temps, but at the lower temps they grow to be More Potent indoors anyway.
