Too Cold
    #1069805 - 11/20/02 02:15 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Okay I just put a thermometer in my fruiting chamber and it will not go above 65 degrees. I was wondering if their is any way that I can bring the temp up too optimal fruiting temps. I was thinking about laying the whole container on top of a heating blanket. Or maybe I should get a fish tank heater (a smaller one) and put it in a glass jug. just a few thoughts if anyone can help me out it would be greatly appreciated.

Peace

Get a fish tank heater.... and while you are at the pet store (petsmart) play w/ the fighting fish, take one fish and put it in another fish's aquarium and watch them fight it out, its fun!

You can also find cheap heating pads at pet stores. they're used for reptile set ups. Lay one down and put your fruiting chamber atop it, and viola, warm vermiculite.

What about if it is a little too warm. The ambient temperature in my closet is 82.

What kind of Terrarium do you have? I use an old Coleman cooler and I installed a 7? watts light bulb wrapped in foil to block the light, inside the cooler. My light source is external so the little bulb inside is just for warmth. With that I'm able to get the Temp from 75 to 77 degrees. Since I'm using a cooler I have no loss of heat and that is why I can use a small bulb. There are so many ways to do it.

heating blankets and heating pads can be bad. If the the jars sit on top of it they may get too warm. Go with the $7 fish tank heater at walmart. Put it in a jar with some water and hydrogen peroxide.

if your terrarium is too hot, try putting a glass of ice water (or even just really cold water) in there, it should cool it off nicely, then replace it when it stops cooling of the terrarium. just make sure the jar of ice water isn't touching your jars/cakes/casings.
