heating inconsistency
    #2348947 - 02/18/04 07:51 AM (13 years, 5 months ago)

my friend had four jars and he used the heating method with the two bins and the bottom one filled with water but since he only had four jars they were smaller bins and he used a heating pad, and he put a towel in the bottom of the bin so the heat wouldn't go right into the bottom of the jar and one ontop of the jars to retain the heat. the temperature just wouldn't stay constant! so he tried different settings and moving around the towels. adding more/less water to the bottom bin. letting the bin vent. etc. One day he came home to find the temp had gotten too high and dried and ruined his jars!

does anyone have any suggestions on how to avoid this?
next time he was considering just leaving them at room temp but eventually he wants to get optimum growing conditions.

help is greatly appreciated on this one.

also, how many people add moisture content to their incubators? I think he should add a little but he doesn't want to overdue it and his hygrometer is busted.

A tub in tub incubator can't be beat, and if this is going to be a hobby for you, you REALLY SHOULD build one. Mine is giagantic and cost me a total of $34 and 1 hour to build, and set up.

Can't beat cheap and easy.

he was using a tub in tub incubator they were just smaller tubs and with a heating pad but the principle was the same, pad heats water, water heats bin
