Incubator I Used
    #1051300 - 11/14/02 02:30 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Azurepower and I came up with this idea back in the day:

Supplies:
2 Sterlite bins (Not Clear) $5 each
Sumbersible Aquarium Heater $25
Thermometer $2-20 (Digital is best)

Take the first bin, and fill about a 1/4 full of water. Place the submersible aquarium heater in the water. Take the other bin and place it inside that bin. Put thermometer in it. Adjust the submersible heater until correct temperature is acquired.

Place jars in top bin when ready. Note the bin sinks into the other one when more weight is applied. This forces water up the sides of the bin, giving equal heating throughout most the incubator.

Why did you cross post this, don't make no sense at all. Besides, although this incubator is effective, I don't think its advanced.

by far and this is a widely widely used method anyway so why the need to reiterate?

i cut 4 inch diameter holes in a tupperware 10liter box at the sides. then put filter discs on with silicon. this sat in a larger bucket with perlite and water and a heater. kept it warm and provided a good buffer and it was kept humid and kept nasties out with the filter

also the holes were low enough that the CO2 was falling out and into the lower bucket

You don?t need this.
CO2 in the developing jars is a natural thing and it supports the growth of the mycelium.

the purpose seemed to be more to take credit for the idea, than to inform people. Several people have come up with this indipendently. It was kind of obvious due to the fact that the containers are designed to stack inside eachother.

Dude, CO2 does NOT support mycelial growth! Fungi are saporophytes, not plants, so they don't use CO2 (and water and sunlight catalysed by chlorophyll) to produce energy, they get their energy from the substrate they live on. They REQUIRE oxygen and they EXCRETE carbon dioxide as a byproduct of energy production. If you were growing green plants and fungi in the same room they would complement each other because plants excrete O2 (that fungi require) and fungi excrete CO2 (that plants require). OK?

Dam i liked the way you described the growth of shrooms and tree's and how they complement each other, I t was like poettry about nature, I sounded so cool when i visualized it, I love nature. :blush: :crazy: :ooo:

Not OK.
Did you ever bother to read any book? Like The Mushroom Cultivator by Paul Stamets?

Page 126:
"During spawn run the mushroom mycelium generates large quantities of carbon dioxide. In fact, it has been demonstrated that mushroom mycelium is capable of CO2 fixation. Because of this ability to absorb CO2, room concentrations of 10,000-15,000 ppm are considered beneficial and desirable. A CO2 level high enough to stop growth is uncommon under normal circumstances. Being heavier than air, CO2 settles at the bottom of the room, which is yet another reason for even air circulation within the growing environment."

OK?

In my previous post I was refering to the growing of the mycelium through the substrate, NOT the fruiting.

Wrong. I guess anno explained as well as needs be, though.

"Fungi are saporophytes"


that's funny, i didn't know all fungi were. I could have sworn there were symbiotic relationships, i.e. mycorhizzal...

You need to read up on some of your information.
