quick question for anyone that knows anything..
    #1259851 - 01/29/03 07:23 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

just curious about one thing.

first off let me say that this is my first grow and im just curious to one thing.
right now ive got my jars incubating and waiting to fully colonize. Ive got the setup with 2 rubbermaids with the bottom one filled with water and a submerged fish tank heater. What id like to know if where is all this humidity comming from.. in the top rummermaid i have condensation all over the walls of my rubbermaid. i dont have any perlite in there or anything, but its moist as hell in there. is this normal to have so much humidity in there?

BTW my jars are doing great, its only been 3 days and one of my jars has exploeded with a huge spot already... im very happy to see that.

maybe somehow the warm water vapor is getting into the upper container via a hole or something? shouldn't be a problem though.

Tape up the outer sides of the top of the rubbermaid container where the lid touches the container. It will keep the jars from rusting and adding a higher chance of contams.

well ive got a tyvek filter on all the jars so im not really worried about contams getting in during incubation. do you really think the moisture in the incubator is a problem? i thought it was strange for moisture to get in but im not sure if i see it as a problem. The way i look at it is the tyvek can breathe as much as it wants now but with all this added humidity i dont have to worry about the substrate dying out in the jars due to the high humidity inside the incubater.. does that make sense?

Your OK man. Make sure that the bottom of the jars are not too hot. Before I built my current incubator I placed a piece of cardboard bettween the bottom of the upper tub and the jars. Im not a big fan of the two tub incubator though.

You could always throw some weather stripping on the top of the sealed container in order to produce a better seal, sometimes the " rubber maids" are fucked up from the "get go". :wink:

I answered your question get some weather strips. Put them on the top part of your incubator (lid), right by where it snaps down. This will form a tight seal and no moisture will enter through the lid of your top container. Or you could do what I did and purchase a self sealing plastic reptile house and float that bitch in the water. I wrapped towels around  the jars and it stays at a constant 82. So far I have had excellent results, with EQ and PM,  but my PB ate shit I'm a thinking :wink:

Here's a diagram from Alien's Tek (Incubator)-Notice the air holes he's placed in his smaller rubbermaid. Scroll half way down to read what he has to say.



I wouldn't worry about the humidity, particularly if you're birthin cakes and not intendin to do casings. High humidity during incubation is fine.
