The room I am growing in is at a constant 76 degrees, and I cannot use an incubator. Will this be ok for colonization even though recommended temps are 84-86???. Any input would be apreciated.

Thanx

Hmmmm,


* Daring to stick my neck out *

Understand that I have only been at this a few months, I would suggest...

Leave them in the box they came in ( jars )
and they should colonize no problem by themselves.

I am learning that jars with proper ratios are doomed to fully colonize with or without an incubator, so it's a little cool where you are??
76 degrees ain't bad...

The gurus should come in and set ya straight soon :)

All sounds fine to me. Jars will be slower, but they will grow fine at 76*F

it would be better if you could at least get the temps up another 5 degrees for about 3-4 days until the spores germinate, then they'll do fine.
otherwise they may take awhile to get going.
