I was thinking my place was too cool for my starter given the hiccups I had at first (and reading it was hard to begin a starter when it's cold), so what I do now to keep it warmer than the house (68F when the heat is on, but it's off at night/part of the day) is when I get up in the morning and zap water for a cup of tea, I feed my starter and put it in the now warmed up micro. That's where it lives at roomish temp. Also, I found warming the water I feed it with to say 80F makes it much happier and rises higher.

So is colder better?
