I'm trying to locate some information regarding fruiting temps for cubs. I know they fruit best around 70f but I'm going to attempt an outdoor grow and being it's already starting to drop into the 50's and even 40's at night, I'd like to use a strain that can handle lower temps since 70 may be the very highest it gets from now on in. :-) Thanks.

Plantasia Mystery is an excellent strain for cooler weather, but you'd have to have a fully colonized bed before the low nighttime temperatures trigger fruiting.

There aren't any cubies that will colonize at the temps you've specified; you'd probably be better off waiting until next season.

Here's a bad photo of the Plantasia Mystery strain fruiting in 66 degree temps beneath a boxwood. A fully colonized chunk of rye grain/straw substrate was 'planted' and cased with soil. Nighttime temperatures have been in the mid-40s.

Note the split cap due to lower than optimum humidity.

If you're dealing with temperatures that cool, why not try P. Azurescens? If you can prepare substrate for cubies you can do it for these, they just use wood. Better yet though, they are noticeably more potent and *require* cooler temperatures to fruit.

I was considering going with some Azurs. I've had a decent amount of experience with the cubies so I'd actually love to try some Azurs.

Anyone have a quick rundown on preparing a (cake) or pan or grain or whatever for Azurs? Basically what I need to prepare. I've got a variety of cubie prints but no azurs now. Can't help to do some research though. Thanks for the info so far.

Looks like it's either something new, the Azurs :-), or next season :-) Indoor works fine anyway! <g>

Again, thanks for the information. Number 5 need input! :-)

Thanks. Also found a link at The Shroomery.

I think it's a bit late to get started now anyway. I'll be waiting till next spring for any outdoor projects and be ready for some Azurs next winter.

or start preparing spawn now till spring comes , so you'll have plenty to start with and can even try different locations and start looking for alder as it is the best imo for spawnmaking

Yeah, that's a good idea. I've had cubie spawn last months just sitting in qt jars in the dark.

Alder chips? Something you can find at a landscaping place or Home Depot?
