incubator temperature problem...
    #1959448 - 09/28/03 01:02 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

This is my first grow , with SA cubensis, and im using a yogurt maker to incubate 5 jars. The guy who gave it to me said ? yeah , im 100% sure it keeps te temp to 80 degrees? he read it in the manual. So i tried it.

I put my 5 jars in it yesterday and today i go check on them and the jars are pretty hot. It seems the surface of the glass is kinda more than even 90 degrees. It wories me cuz i heard spores die when then temp exceed 95 degrees.

Are my jars ruined? The heat is given only at the bottom of the jars. The jars have pretty thick glass, thicker than a mason jar, so could they be hot, and the substrate may be cooler or something?

im really worried

Spores can survive temps up to 100 +. You should be fine, try to drop the temp somehow. Wait a couple days and see, I think they are ok...no worries.

If you can't lower the temps ditch the yogert maker and make a tub in tub set up.

You may get more even heat disribusion if you stand the jars in water. I take it you can pour some water round the jars?
Plus it would be a good idea to add a splash of h2o2 to the water round the jars,, keep out contams.

yeah its possible to put the jars in water the only problem is that the lids end up rusting because of the condensation that arises with the water issue

Rust will not harm the mycelium, its only iron oxide. The jar will last a few dozen times at least.

Tub in tub seems to work.

Now I?ll show off. :tongue:



By the way a little water pump in the bottom will move the water around so it heats up from all sides and not just the top.



Back to showing off
