The room I have my terrariums in is really cool.It has been averaging 60 degrees for the past few days.I am at the fruiting stage.Is this too cool?I notice I am getting tremendous humidity even a couple hours after I open the terrariums up for fresh air.Thanks

maybe not 'too' cool, but cool enough to really slow things down.

I heard that shrooms will grow slower but more potent if they are grown in colder temps. Is this fact or fiction anyone know?

maybe slightly more potent sometimes,
but not really enough to offset the time loss.

Go to walgreens and buy the WALGREENS brand heating pad..$12.95. Or go to any reptile store and buy a reptile heating pad and put either of them right under your terrarium...this will dramatically increase fruiting speeds, especially since they are used to being in a 60 degree temp range...good luck and happy shrooming.

Do not put a heating pad under the terrarium. This is a fire hazard. A reptile pad is what you would want. I am using a water bed heater that is working out really well. Anything that is MADE to be put UNDER something is what you want. Just my 2 cents.

Yah I have noticed that reptile bed heating pads are quite expensive. I would just be patient and let them grow in the cooler temps.
And while your waiting whip up some more jars.

Yup. Yup. Making more jars helps. Especially when you blow the dunking process, and have some ripe smelling cakes Its nice to know there are more cakes on the way!!
