Incubator question...
    #1375818 - 03/14/03 12:10 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

My dog ralphie has this sterilite container, which can be found here:

http://www.geocities.com/trifevt/terraium1.jpg

I know it says terra., but I'm going to use it as a incubator first :smile:  Problem is, which a heating pad (on high) underneath it, the temp usually sits around 74 degrees.  That is with a towel in the bottom of the sterilite container...

I need it to hit 80-85 degrees... I'm thinking that the container is just too big and so I'm about to go out to wallymart and get a smaller container.. would this work, or what should I do?

Thanks!  :tongue:

EDIT:  To see the picture, you have to copy and paste it... argh geocities..

Trife - your link doesn't work (no picture). The 82-84 range is optimum for most cubensis strains but 74 is fine also. They just won't colonize as quick. It won't hurt them being in room temp since alot people just toss them back into the box it came in and place it in a dark spot.

If you really want to increase the temp check into getting a submersible aquarium heater that you can adjust the temperature on.

I have a small container with a heating pad under it. It has 12 jars in the container, they barely fit in there. It is kept at a steady 80-85 because my heating pad is always on high, and the container is so small

here we go, i do believe i have fixed the problem

went to wally mart, bought a smaller (36 liter instead of 70 liter) container, which will fit my 24 jars very nicely...

here is the new setup, you must copy and paste the address, i'm afraid...
