not sure I understand your question golly. What do you mean by "survive". The coldest bin finished about 2.5 days after the warmest one. Note that pin formation took 3 days longer at the lower temp also.

the hotter it gets
the more air exchanges and moisture you want,
think jungle
and cubies love it.
of course hot moist stagnant = mold/bacteria/yeasts
so keep that air moving

yeah. this things grow in the tropical enviroments. t. mckenna found them in the amazon jungle. othe psilocybe specias grow in more temperate enviroments.

when grown outdoors
they can handle temps well into the 90s just fine.

only inside do the contams really become an issue
since fresh air is restricted

Currently my friend has 2 cakes that were just birthed a couple of days ago of Hawaiians. For pinning to occur he's had no problem with the humidity, with using Perlite of course. No problem with light, with about 8 hours of indirect light a day. However the temp has been a problem. His room is drafty and the temp has been bouncing between 72- and 76 degrees. Weather depending here. Is this good enough for pinning or is some heat required to get these cakes to start pinning? If so then what do you suggest to use to this correct this problem???

They will be fine at those temps... higher temps are for incubation but for fuiting your friend is OK.

Stop looking at them so much and be patient!

You are welcome!
It is actually recommended to drop the temp from the ideal incubation of 80-85 degrees to 70-75 to initiate the fruiting cycle along with air and light.
Giving birth to the little ones is an overwhelming experience - be calm and patient and those little ones will be fine!

Just wondering cause I've heard a couple of different answers here according to where you read, what is the max. temp wanted in a fruiting chamber before the temp is too high??? What will happen to the cakes if the temp is too high???

everything after 83 to 85 needs lots of air exchange to keep the nasties at bay at around 90 cobweb starts to be a issue with most species

The main problem with higher temps is that you're more at a chance of getting contams. Anywhere between 70 and 80 F and you're fine, obviously, although some strains fruit at lower and higher temps than others, B+ for example can thrive at a slightly lower temp than most others and blah, blah....i'm rambling, so sorry. For me the ideal FC temp has been between 73 and 78 F, anyhoo hope this helps. peace.

Moe.

fegured i should mention somthing . high temps 84*F-86*F is the max you want to go with cubbies during vegitive growth . pinning is best done at 74-78*f . with higher temps the mushrooms grow faster ,but are not as firm and fresh as if you where to keep them at the mid 75* and overall yield is slightly decresed while speed to it is incresed . if you keep them at the recomended fruiting temps you get firmer and fuller mushrooms with there full potential being met.
Hint ( if your having a hot day and you need to cool things down put ice into you kaz to drop the temps by 5-10* and vice versa )
