can i ghetto rig an incubator?
    #1833876 - 08/20/03 04:20 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

my cakes are done but i dont see any mycelium growing and its been about 4 or 5 days. ive been keeping the cakes in my room but up here in alaska its not very warm so i was wondering if theirs a way to make a cheap ass incubator. i already looked at one from pf but i cant get those supplies. i know the mycelium wont grow if its too cold but if my cakes just sit their and dont grow will they eventually go bad or will it just start growing once i heat them up. (sorry if that all sounded confusing im and idiot)

"my cakes are done but i dont see any mycelium growing..."

What?

uh, if you bought all twelve of the jars you can use the box they came in. spray it all over with lysol, line the inside with foil, place your jars in there, and leave it on top of a space heater set on low (1-2 max) I think that's as ghetto as your gonna get.

Can you get a fish tank heater and two identical rubbermaid bins?

its uh, a contraption for heating small areas, it about 3 feet high, usually rides on wheels, beige,..?? you can also put it in your attic (that is if it doesn't get too hot up there and is relatively clean.) or on top of the fridge, room temp will work but expect to wait a while.

go to walmart buy a 2 sterlite containers big enough to hold your jars
then pour water in the bottome one buy a 100 watt fish tank heater attach it to the bottom and drop the top sterilte container on and put your jars in and shut the lid and make sure its at the highest temp possible and cover up with a clean blanket THE END

No. Thats a bubbler. Just buy a fish tank heater off the internet. And do a search for "incubator" in the grow log and pictures forum.
