HEAT?????
    #11220641 - 10/10/09 02:39 PM (8 years, 3 months ago)

Im going to use 18 gal bins and put them in the closet..its getting damn cold where i live.. I was wondering if theres any type of heat lamp or heat pads etc I can use to keep the temperature up ?

I have seen some electric heated wires on one of the sponsors sites. I was thinkin about using those under the bins...they immediately activate when the temp gets to 75 or below...
What do you guys think? Or i could just leave the heat on in my place when im not here..

Room temperature is fine for colonization and fruiting (70-75 degrees).  If you really want to get precise with temp ranges, go for it, but it's not really necessary unless your area is in the extremes or something.

the lid on my bins isnt 100% air tight.. should i seal it or is it ok? the method ive seen.. people drill sm all holes in the top of the bin any way to allow a small amount of air inside. Its not like a huge gap or anything in the lid its pretty small. Maybe i should just leave it like that instead of drilling holes?

Toss a blanket over the bins while they colonize.

Get a cheap aquarium heater and place it into a jar.  You will have to cut a hole in the top of the jar and seal it.  That should keep you anywhere from 75f to 85f depending of the heater you use.
