What are the upper temperature limits for both colonization and fruiting? Also, what would be the ideal?

upper is 106F; death occurs at that temp. Optimum temp for incubation is 86F, for fruiting, 75F

Cool, thanks.

Above what temperature is colonization inhibited? Also, has anyone had any experience with the intensity of light slowing down colonization? A FOAF noticed an obvious pattern of slow and fast colonizing jars around his fluoresent light source. Very close to light = not good. He's wondering if it's the light intensity or higher temperature in that area that's doing it.

it's not the light itself,
it's the heat.
too hot stresses the mycellia to where it can not grow as it's so busy trying to replace lost water due to evaporation.
best not to go over 90*F,
and remember--it's hotter inside the jar,
since the mycellia itself generates some heat.
