heted water in incubator good idea for heating & humidy
    #2292589 - 02/01/04 10:48 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

I have a small styrofoam cooler as an incubator. I just put a 12x3x4 alluminum tray in it filled with water and layed a fish tank heater in it. I adjusted the heater temp so the box now stays at 84F (29C) with the water temp up around 90-95 deg.

The box has high humidity but is too much bad? I dont want any mold to grow on the inside of the foam. Should i cover the pan with foil so most of the heat is from the convection not water evaporation? or is it ok as is?

too much humidity can be bad. first of all, if your lids are covered with foil its less of a problem because moisture on the lid won't drip into the jars. But really if the jars are covered with foil and whatnot they'll regulate their own humidity pretty well, to my knowledge humidity is not that important during the incubation stage. I do put a little cup of water in my incubator though, but its a big 3 foot rubbermaid so it really doesn't get that humid in there. Just be careful is my advice, I've ruined whole batches in the incubator from having too much humidity.

if your water temp is 95 and you put your jars in the water thus your jars are 95 do a tub in tub

the jars are next to the continer not in it. I dont haev room for a tub in a tub but do you think puting alarge trya that fits perfectly in the cooler and puting the jars in the water (adjusted to 80-85 F) would be a good idea? I put a foil cover on the heated water, turned down the heater, and the temp is now holding at 81F(27C) with much lower humidity.
