Quick ? on heating my fruiting chamber
    #2216913 - 01/03/04 05:48 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

Would a 40 watt bulb covered in aluminum foil (so not alot of light is constantly on the cakes) be an ok way to heat my fruiting chamber? The light would be hanging about 9 inches above the top of the jars.

Forty watts is a lot of heat for a small, enclosed space. It might overheat things. Try it out and see what temperature you end up at, then adjust the size of the bulb.

Incubation should be at ~85F and fruiting at ~75F. As for light, there's no need to cover the bulb during fruiting, though you should incubate in the dark.

Could I put a towel over the jars so it stays dark, and have the bulb, not covered, still hanging over head?

I wouldn't use a towel; that's a fire risk.

Go to to the drugstore and buy a heating pad for $10; use that to manage the temperature without light.
