help with regulating temp
    #2259541 - 01/21/04 01:30 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

As you can see im using a styrofoam cooler as a incubator for my mushies...but recently i think i have been having problems regulating the temp...i think i need to add a pickle jar with a fish tank heater in it, with some water to regulate the temp...but im not sure if this would work for my set up...

the problem is..the terrarium lid was styrofoam,..i cut out the center and applied plexiglass with silicone around it to hold it in place..and it makes a nice seal...there is also a drip shield the rest's about 2 inches below the lid...

basically im lookiong for some creativity on what you guys think i should do..i was thinking a heat pad, but thats to hard to control..

what do you tihnk..im open to ideas!

fish tank heater in a gallon of water, works like a charm. There might be some other options, but all around this will be cheapest and easiest.

wrap it in an electric blanket. I have always used one.
