Incubation Chamber to be built. Advice?
    #2170963 - 12/10/03 12:54 PM (12 years, 11 months ago)

Made from a 95qt Navy Blue Rubbermaid container.

Powered with a Delonghi "table-top" space heater with temp triggered shut-off, which will be inside away from the actual jars; jars will always be WBS.

The top is cut out and has mounted plexi-glas for looking inside.

The side has a Poly-fill filter cut into it.

Does this set-up need anything else?

incubator you say? no filter required, and light is positively harmful. careful with that heater, too.
sorry, time for a rethink.

aim for 85F, 40-70%rH, complete darkness. have you considered a tub-in-tub, powered by a submersible fishtank heater?

A tub in a tub is a messy Pain In The Ass. I am trying to K.I.S.S., and that thing is not a simple device. submersible water heaters, and changing all that crap out, I could be making Meth for how complicated this is getting.

I grew shrooms before, I had no incubator, no air exchange in the terrarium, I only gave them 15 minutes of light a day, and I was only semi-clean. When did this get so complicated?

Not more complicated, just more efficient. Shirleys advice is very simple.
2 rubbermaids, a submersable heater and water. Cant get to much easier than that.
Just my opinion

My friend has a 95qt. rubbermaid with a couple gallon jars, 1 on each end, with a submersible fish tank heater in each and it sits from 84- 87 degrees. It saves the trouble of having 2 tubs like the tub in tub method. Both are worthwhile though, goodluck

There?s lots of designs but I haven?t found one as good as the tub in tub. I like to add a little water pump to stir the water so it doesn?t just heat up from the bottom up.

Seems to work

Well, I guess if that's the way to go, then that is that.

Thanks for the help everyone.

Could one replace the jars with a Grain-Based mycobag?
And is it possible to fruit in one of these setups?
Also if fruiting is possible, which is the best way to provide good air exchange inside one of these tubs?

Also that eyedea about using 1 tub and two jars or mabie milk jugs w/ fish heaters in them. Could the containter disperse the humidity and heat at adiquite levels?

I just always put my jars into a rubbermaid container then put a small on heating pad on the lowest setting underneath it, and if that is to hot then just put a blanket or something between them, now that is simple as fuck. :tongue:

I'm using the Tub-in-tub method,  this morning I poke a bunch of holes on the bottom of the top tub, and my humidity whent up the a good level.
My basement is about 64F, so it's hard maintaining a temp in the 80's w/ just a fish tank heater in the bottom tub,  I might try a heating pad, but water condenses on the walls and all over my tub, this raises the risk of shock and short-out :frown:.  I'm adding a double-pumper fish pump tommaorw and some Bubble/Air wands too, then I hear having air pumped from the bottom in the water and a hose from the top of the top tub work the best.  Any input?  Can I use the bubblers w/o any Geolite or perlite just reg water w/ a little Hydrogen Peroxide? 

I got my spores from Ralphster today, and want to innoc tommarow, but only if my temps are adiquite.  Also has anyone tried the Argentine strain? is it even Trip-able?
