1 question about incubation...
    #1892645 - 09/08/03 01:51 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

When your colonizing your substrate how essential is an incubator. I noticed that without one (currently I do not have one) it takes 2-3 weeks to fully colonize a pint of WBS, or popcorn. I have seen people on the internet have fully colonized pint jars in less than 2 weeks with an incubator. So I was wondering if I should invest in one, and what the most cost effecient method of incubating would be. IE: Rubbermaids with a aquarium heater setup?

try putting the jars in a bin (rubbermaid, sterilite, etc.) of some kind, and wrapping that in an electric blanket, or do the two bin/aqaurium heater thing

Its worth keeping the jars at 85-deg if you want faster results.

HAPPY FUCKING HOLIDAYS!

wrap your jars in a towel, put them in a shoe box, and set them on top of your monitor.

the heat from the monitor will incubate them ;D

the vent holes on top of your monitor are there to let heat escape .
covering them up with anything will shorten the monitors life . :frown:
