Incubation heater/bubbler heat fruiting chamber
    #1022722 - 11/05/02 12:34 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Sorry if this question has been posted before, but I couldn't find anything relating specifically to this question. I'm using an aquarium heater in a bottle of water inside a small(12"x16"x12") rubbermade for incubation purposes. I was thinking of converting this into a sealed bubbler and running the output tube into a fruiting chamber to save money on buying another heater(winter is pretty harsh here). I figure this will increase humidity in the fruiting chamber which is using a perlite layer, but will it also increase heat? I just thought I'd ask before I go burning holes in everything to find that it doesn't really work that well.

You mean you are gonna put the tube from the air pump in the jar with the heater? I don't see how this would increase heat, but if someone can explain how it will that would be cool. Winter is that harsh that one heater by itself isn't enough to mantain 75 degrees, where do you live?

I was thinking of doing the sealed heater/bubbler thing and putting it in the incubator. The incubator would receive heat from the warm bottle of water. The output would be piped out of the incubator through a small hole in the top and into a fruiting chamber. The main fruiting chamber has its own heater/thermostat, but I'm thinking of ways to heat additional smaller fruiting chambers without buying more heaters. My heater is a 150 watt and the incubator is small. I was thinking if I coiled the air tubing in the heater/bubbler bottle and then bubbled the air through a sponge or airstone it would warm the air more. I always see posts where people say that this contraption puts out warm moist air. I'm just wondering how warm and can it heat a small fruiting chamber. I'm now living somewhere in Japan, dropped out of American society about 5 years ago.
