Raising temperature Techniques....Terrarium.
    #1614937 - 06/06/03 04:59 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I've done some searching and found a few techniques...but I think it would be good to have them all in one post.....or perhaps there has already been 1 that I have overlooked....

A FOAF needs to raise the temp from 68 F up to 75 F ...so about 7 degrees....the last time she did this she just wrapped a blanket around her terrarium...but that only raises it a few degrees....

I did read about a fish tank heater in a second container....and a heating pad....are there any other peoples out there with other techniques......
For her incubation chamber she has a space heater right in with her jars...and it works fine....but she can't really do that for contaminating reasons in the terrarium.
Thanks in advance....

I use a cheap, overhead lamp with a 100watt bulb. The regular temperature is around 65 degrees, and with this lamp I can raise it as high as 93 degrees F. I keep the terranium around 73 degrees, and with 24 hours of light in these conditions, I can gurantee myself pinning quickly.

I'm going to try and use a 60 watt bulb tomorrow. I was using a 100 watt mainly to dry out my harvest and to heat two terraniums.
