Making a Pod and incubator
    #1612579 - 06/05/03 08:34 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Ok so my foaf started getting supplies to build his set up and he has a few questions. He is gonna build a pod poor man's pod . Do you really need an aquarium heater for this? Isn't room temp what would be needed for fruiting? Any particular style/brand/size tub you would recommend?

Secondly, for his incubator. From what he has seen, all that is needed is two plastic tubs. Water in the bottom one and an aquarium heater, then the second one sits inside of this one. Is there any particular brand or style of tub that you would recommend? Why? The ones he was looking at today when stacked together only left maybe 2 inches of clear space. Is that enough room for the water and heater? If not how would you keep them far enough apart? How far is enough? It seems to me that if you separted them too much, then the heat from the water would escape around the sides and you wouldn't get it hot enough.

rubbermade roughnecks work well. 200 watt ebo jager heater is the best IMO.

I?m glad you like the idea of the poorman?s pod I came up with this so let me see if I can help.

Myself I have never used the heater. Many have with good results but in my part of the world it?s not needed.

You can use any size tub you like just get a air pump that exchanges all the air in the chamber 2 to 3 times a hour.

I had the same problem with my incubator what I did was to put a jar in each corner as spacers to make the room needed. I also put a small water pump next to the heater to mix the water so that it heats up from all over rather then just the bottom of the incubator.

Is that duct tape over the holes in the lids of your jars?

Yep. After 2 weeks I remove the tape and put a coffee filter as a dust cover and the jars finish less then a week after that.

The pod works much better then this old dual humidifer setup
