Temps are killin me here
    #1149322 - 12/17/02 03:33 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

well i put my brf cakes into the fruiting chamber and the fuckin temp in the things is like in the low damn 60's...i'm fucked... what do i do?? i pretty much have to leave the chamber as is, cos i have to make it look inconspicuous, so it looks just like a regular rubbermaid container... will they still fruit with low temps? i have them sitting on 1 1/2 inch layer of perlite with 1 inch of standing water... will they still fruit in these low temps? oh yeah and i fan about 3 times a day if that matters

Stick a heating pad under the fucker and adjust it till you get a little higher temps, they'll still fruit, but not quite as well.

Way too much water! Try 1/4 inch of water....
Temp wise... If it will fruit, it will be SLOW.
You can put a bottle of hot water inside to raise the temp.

Yea, get rid of some of that water. Overkill. Cakes should still pin in that temperature, just at a much slower rate. I'd imagine that you'd initiate quite a few pins, but would have trouble growing them into maturity. I just "imagine" that though. I've known myself to be a bit delusional every now and then.

i had the same prob. i had temps at around 67-70 degrees. i stuck a heating pad under there and now i have temps between 70-74. a heating pad works but i dont know how safe it is to keep it running all the time. i do it anyways.

It is a jar for storing Pasta noodles. You can find them with kitchen stuff. Kinda nice because of the rubber sealing ring and the locking lid. This one came with a set of 4. It is the tallest one. You may be able to get one seperate I dont know.

in the jar is water and a 50W submersable fish tank heater:)

Hey, I have one of those jars sitting doing nothing,,how long would that last before you had to refill it do you think?

At the minute I am just having to heat my whole damn kitchen to get enough heat to colonise jars, as I have a broken leg, and can't get out to get stuff. But in the new year I'll get me some of these aquarium heaters and some big storage containers ("rubber maids"), and save myself a fortune.

Mine (pictured above) has been on for over a month now and is still full of water. Add about 10% bleach to the water to keep it steril.
