First time growing shrooms

Hey!

so I’ve just ordered my first kit.

My understanding is that it need minimum 23c constant temperature.

I have my tent up, which would be perfect. I do have 2 plants growing in there tho (I don’t know if that would affect it, having to be sterile and all).

my question is, can I put the tub into my grow tent so I get the right temps? Would I have to cover it (maybe put it in a black bag?) from the light?

Outside the tent is ~20c. Which probably is not enough?

Thanks in advance!

It's not ideal but it should be fine as long as the temps don't fluctuate too much or get too hot.

I wouldnt, pathogens and light come to mind . mushrooms need very little light when fruiting and mycelium doesnt really like it when colonizing. find a temp stable spot in an out of the way part of your house .

Even if it is slightly lower temps that should also be fine. I always kept everything that was colonizing in a room in my house. A grow tent with intense lighting is not the best place for mycelium. I keep any colonizing jars or agar plates inside a high placed kitchen cabinet out of the way of nosy people. Bonus points if it gets a little bit of indirect sunlight during the day from tiny gaps in between the doors.

Temperature is not much of a factor in growing mushrooms. Lower temperature just mean slower growth. Beat not to freeze them or go above their thermal death temp but other than that and large variations (condensate may bring otherwise sequestered contaminants down to your substrate) you neednt worry about temp.
