do you have the tubberware in the tubberware or the heater in the jar?

heater in the jar. the heat makes the water evaporate pretty quick. i'll leave it alone for days and then fill it back up. no problems yet.

don't you end up with a lot of humididty?
It sounds like more people have had good luck with the heater in jar as opposed to the tubberware in tubberware.

I use a non-submersible type heater, but the water in the jar always evaportes below the required water line within a day. By the time I checked the water line and add more water in the jar at night it's usually just a little under the line, will this burn out my heater?

i was getting a lot of humidity, even dripping and pooling on the bottom of the cooler but the jars didn't seem to care. i moved it into a much drier environment and now i get no dripping or pooling.

my water level is almost always below the line, sometimes WAY below the line and i haven't blown the heater yet. but i may just be lucky. the directions say not to let it go below the line.

I guess those heaters are designed to leave some room for mistake, ie. not breaking down totally right below the line. Few mm below the line seems to be fine?

I've been using the heater in the jar and it sucks so I'm going to try the tubberware next.

yeah, they can't be like 'oops, went 1 nanometer below the line, kablooey!'

mine occasionally goes a few INCHES below the line. so your few mm shouldn't hurt.

why do you think it sucks? What kind of climate do you live in?

i use heater in jar for incubation only, not fruiting.

i use ambient air temp in the 'shroom room' for fruiting and i keep that around 75. i have a bathroom with an oil-filled space heater.

how did you avoid the dripping and pooling?
Wouldn't the heater be helpful in creating humidity in use with the perlite?

i had dripping/pooling until i set up the little room (small bathroom) with the oil-filled heater. the heater dries out the air in there real good. at least that's my guess because i sure don't get dripping/pooling any more.

the casing fruiting chamber is also in there but it is humidified using an aquarium pump into a bin of water with perlite floating in it to increase surface area. rh sits right at 89 or 90 all the time.

here is a thread with a pic of the casing chamber with the lid open. water/perlite bubbler mix is on the left.

nice flush. How exactly does the fishtank pump work? I know it sounds stupid but I don't really understand what they do and how they work. I'm trying to figure out how to get the warm air from one tubberware into another (in dual use of the fth thread).

i have an aquarium air pump connected to a timer that turns it on for 15 minutes then off for 15 minutes 24 hours a day. the pump is outside the plastic bin. a hose runs from the pump to an air stone (2 for like 1 or 2 dollars at kmart) which is submerged in a pyrex dish containing water, hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) and perlite.

when the pump turns on, it sends air into the water/perlite mix. the air collects moisture and moves into the chamber, providing humidity and fresh air to the fruit. when the pump is off, humidity is still released into the chamber by the water/perlite in the dish.

i'm not sure such a small pump would be so good at moving air in more than one chamber.

Is the pyrex dish with perlite inside of the terrarium? Do you or anyone else know where there are maybe good pictures of this. I know the faqs have some but I mean one that has worked well for you or somebody else personally.

Check this:
This is a unique way to keep your heater out of view and harms way. The module will accept a heater with a 3/4 in. to 1 in. diameter. Do not exceed 1000 watts per module or a pressure of 15 psi. 1.25 in. Inlet, 1 in. Outlet Slip x Slip. This module fits nicely with our UV sterilizers on page 385, chemical filters on page 357, and our mechanical filters on page 357. Dimensions - 15 x 7 x 5 in
