sauna for incubation and birthing
    #2370126 - 02/23/04 12:38 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I'm planning to use my in-home sauna room for incubation and growing by placing a heater with thermostat and ultrasonic humidifier in the sauna - about 4 feet by 5 feet and 7-1/2 feet high. My thinking is that by controlling the ambient temp and humidity that little or no effort at humidifying and gas exchange would be necessary within the terrarium. Has anyone tried this with success/failure?

Or does anyone even have an opinion?

best thing to do is test your idea by adjusting your temperatures both hihg and low and make sure you can maintain them for a few days

My plans exactly. The temp is no problem, that's pretty easy to regulate, just having a hard time finding the right humidifier... Alaska ain't exactly the land o' plenty when it comes to retail choices. The sauna is lined with cedar and I wasn't sure if this was a good breeding ground for nasties when humid, or if it was a natural antibiotic. Any thoughts? I'm going to try it so I can let you know if it works some time in the future.

pawpaw... a sauna is actualy a little easier to deal with contams in.. it's usualy redwood or cedar and both are quite resistant to rot and fungus

Magicac... try a 1-2% bleach solution to kill anything that may be lurking in tiles and concrete... handle it as you would any clean room... as for the humidity a moderatly sized cool mist humidifyer should be plenty... buy a good hygrometer and try it out... otherwise it's misting heads for landscapeing and a little plumbing

Thanks Prisoner. Got the hygrometer and tried an 'evaporative' cool mist humidifier - crap, only got up to 51 RH. An ultrasonic is on it's way.

I had considered the bleach solution but was uncertain about it, so with your suggestion I'll certainly shoot the suface, cracks and crevices. I believe you are correct about the properties of redwood and cedar, I believe the wood itself will take care of any nasties on the surface. If they are prone to survive anywhere it'll probably be in the c&c.

Spores are on their way too, can't wait!

If I were you, I'd build a little enclosure from pvc and visqueen in one end of it. Then port your humidifier into it (put a filter over the air intake), and control the ambient temperature of the sauna. That is wat I plan on doing this summer. By the way, where in AK are you? I'll be back in Fairbanks as of mid-April. I tried growing in a log cabin the other winter with only wood heat, the mushrooms freaked out and barely grew. The heat was just too unsteady.
Good luck...
