Incubator...does it matter??
    #1412814 - 03/26/03 11:12 PM (14 years, 8 months ago)

My friend has a 10 gallon rubbermaid sitting in a 20 gallon rubbermaid filled with water and heated by a submersable aquarium heater.Right now incubator temps stay consistent @ 81*f .He recently read the "popcorn as a substrate" thread and also the "Liquid mycellium Tek" so need less to say he's all of a sudden got ALOT of stuff to incubate at one time. So his question is can he just flip the set up and have the smaller rubbermaid(10gal) on the bottom and the larger(20gal) rubbermaid on top? Do you think it would drastically change tempreratures?He's worried because he's got about 8-  1/2pint PF style jars @ 95% colonization and doesn't want to screw anything up...your help and patience is greatly appreciated! :confused:

It won't work...it will crush the heater.

Use two 20 gallon rubbermaids...if you need more room.

good luck!

Umm put placers in so the fish tank heater wont crush.. My friend has his incubator at ~81F. Works wonders, very sterile, and colonization is soooo much better.

I agree with roadkill, a friend has two bins that are the same size with a heater in there and the temps are consistently at 87F

Actually his friend was arguing with his girlfriend about this. She agreed with Roadkill and he just wanted more space.

What's with all the temperature differences? Everyone says something totally different. The reason his friend keeps his temps. at the lower side of 81*-84* is beacause they produce so much of their own heat. especially when you have a lot together.

So why all the difference?

My friend keeps them on the high end so they're more apt to notice the temperature drop when they go into the fruiting chamber at 75F. He thinks the drop-off in growth rate one or two degrees above optimal is a fair tradeoff given that the mycelium seems to fruit more consistently this way.
