Heating Mat (for shroomkits)
<p “=””>Never put the grow kit directly on the heating mat. Always put something in between to ‘ventilate.’ Such as a folded towel. If the grow kit gets too much direct heat from the heating mat, the mycelium will lose all its moisture.<p “=””>Use the Heating Mat for the FIRST 2 DAYS ONLY, right after setting up the kit. After 2 days, the grow kit is kickstarted, and does not need extra heating anymore.
If you use it for more than 2 days, the brick may become too dry. Therefore, cannot grow shrooms.<p “=””>This electrical device uses a 🔌 Euro-plug<p “=””>It’s recommended to get a mycelium Thermometer in combination with the heating mat.
Mushroom Heating Mat
A magic mushroom grow kit should be maintained somewhere between 18-28°C during cultivation. Thermo mats are a great tool to help you with this task. They enable you to cultivate all year around and keep your mushroom kit at an optimal temperature. We would like to share a few tips and tricks, let’s start by taking a look at our heating pad / thermo mat video:
The video was done a few years ago and although these instructions are still useful we would like to share some additional tips that we have picked up since the production of that video that have to do with the usage of thermo mats with your magic mushroom kit.
Updated instructions for Mushroom Heating Mat!
Our instruction video explains that there should be airflow between the ground and the thermo mat. This technique works perfectly and has worked for years. But here’s the update to our instruction:.
It is said that a constant temperature of 24°C is the optimal temperature for the mushrooms to grow. But kits can also grow perfectly between the 20-24°C. We recommend to use the heating mat only if the room temperature is constantly lower than 20 degrees. If it’s warm enough, consider not using a heating mat and save some energy :).
Airflow between the grow kit and thermo mat
If you’re going to use the heating mats then you should think about diffusion. We’ve learned that it’s good to create airflow between the thermo mat and mushroom grow kit. This way, you can diffuse the heat more properly and increase your chance of optimizing the growing conditions for your grow kit. Here are some examples of ways to diffuse the heat:
Use it and diffuse it!
So here you go. Now you’re ready to use your heating mat and keep those lovely mushroom warm and cosy at the right temperature. It’s always good to have a heating mat. Especially when the winter’s coming. Just be aware of how to use it, and learn how to diffuse it :).
