you say your temps are running in the 80s?
foaf experienced some troubles with the EQ strain shortly after the first stages of pinning while fruiting @ temps >80 degrees.... Seemingly healthy pins growth slowed to a crawl and many aborted.
Please keep us posted... I would like to see the final result of those young pins!

Originally i was fruiting this high but over the last 4 days temps have dropped because my apt is cooler and the FC doesnt insulate well enough to keep it around 84. I have a sweet thermomiter and it tells me my low is 77.8 and my high is 80.8 these temps have been recorder over the last 20 hours or so .... the test goes on i just wanted to update u on temperature changes
i will produce more pics on 10-4 prolly

Hey Pedestrian are u stating that ur Foaf had a lot of aborts when fruiting >80 degrees?
Yes, but that was just his experience. Nothing in stone. Foafs ambient temps ran from 80-86 which probably meant that the substrate was even hotter. Too hot to fruit properly IMO. I was just curious to see the results of another person fruiting EQ at near incubation temps.
I would say it's good that you dropped the temp a little bit.
For those who didn't understand... my bad.... The symbol > means "greater than"

After a little thinking and looking at Staments book pinning and cropping tems for cubbies in general are in the 75-79F range and its the incubation stage that is in the 80+
You also bring up a valid point in that the casing will keep the mycelium a couple degrees warmer than the air and is much less suseptable to immediate changes in temps. This means just because the fish tank bubbler comes on and airates the chamber dropping the temps by 2-3 degrees does not mean that the casing will do so also.
Thanks for your thoughts PED ... Low for the last 12 hrs is 75F and the high is 79.5F. Pics tomorow b-4 work.

+ 2 days (10-4-06)
Air exchange 60 minutes off 30 minutes on using a fish tank bubbler - one hose goes to a cup of water one provides air
