Incubator Idea

Im not sure how common these specialty blankets are nowdays, I personally havent seen a new one in years. They were really popular in the 80s. The electric blankets that you plug into the outlet and have an adjustable knob as to which heat range your looking for.

Well, the idea is finding one of those, folding it up neatly into a good heat containing object and gently setting your jars amongst the blanket as a heat source.

I dont see any reason why this wouldnt work, the heat still has to filter through the fabrics of the blanket and shouldnt harm the mycelium with any direct heat source (106 is gonna be kinda hard to achieve with a sleeping blanket...)

Tell me what you think.

People have thought about this before, it tends to dry out your substrate inside of your jars which makes for no/ slow colonization. Also it can be a fire hazard. Then again, some people use it successfully without any problems. MOst people use heating pads now adays and not the heating blankets, not sure if there would be much of a difference
