ever incubate IN water?
    #2552095 - 04/12/04 07:42 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I was thinking of having jars partially submerged with the water line below the lids next time. Maybe that would distribute warmth alot more even so as to get more uniform colonization between each jar and maybe cut down the time. Has anyone ever tried it?

no
i would reccomend against this you don't want yr substrate to get overly wet, which can hinder myc colonization and enable contams
if you want to distribute the heat evenly in a tub in tub
pick up a $10 aquarium pump and throw it in the bottom with the heater

I read something in thje teks here (or the Nook...  not sure where) about this.

They suggested that, if you added salt to the water (and had a saltwater submersible heater :wink: ) it could be done...

Sounds do-able
Becareful of water drops falling on other jars could spred contams.
Try it out, let us know how it goes
Good Luck  :mushroom2:

what about just putting a little H202 in there with the water?

i was thinking that would also be a good idea for a tub in tub...

I wish psychedelic mushrooms were legal, because I would like to indulge in this amazing fruit of the earth. Unfortunately, I can only learn about this interesting hobby, and cultivate legal mushrooms.

I used an incubator that 'steamed' the jars... tub in tub with holes, keep a close check on water levels and make sure theres 1 in the middle to drain back

I never had a problem when I used tyvek for filters or bags.

I incubated the jars in water once...The jars rust and the contams build up after a while even with bleach in the water... its not really worth it man just buy another tub and a fishtank heater
