Im Gonna build an Incubator
    #1000730 - 10/28/02 07:39 PM (18 years, 9 months ago)

Ok so I got the big rubbermaid guy.

My plan was to take a gallon of water in the jug, put a fish tank heater in it to create the warth. My question is do i want to put the lid on the rubbermaid, or would just a blanket be better so there is still some air moving around rather than having it closed up.

does that sound ok? thanks=D

cool plan, the only thing i'd be worried about is if the heater floated to the side of the jug, it could melt the plastic. cause those things do get pretty hot

dude I don't know but i would think it would be better to make a little air flow to keep the humidity down and chances of mold and don't forget the h2o2

so i take it i should leave the lid off of the rubbermaid so the humidity can stay right.

i finally have a hygrometer so i can check better.

i was thinking i'd put the water in a glass jar also, so then i dont have to worry about the plastic melting.
and then just a blanket over the top of the tub.

If you leave the lid off, how will you keep the heat in?

by putting a blanket over the top it instead of a lid.
or could i maybe put some small holes in the lid........or leave the lid on with it just cracked open or off the side a little.

not too sure, thats why im here=D

If I were you, I'd swap that rubbermaid for a styrofoam cooler, this will hold the heat in better. As for humidity in the incubator, it doesn't really matter.

styrofoam cooler isn't gonna be big enough.
i think it would hold heat fine, my room stays at a constant temperature.

Since you already have one rubbermaid, maybe this set up is more to your liking http://www.fungifun.org/pf/incubator.htm
