thermostat
    #2565548 - 04/15/04 09:31 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

where can i get some sort of thermostat to exactly control the head of my incubation/fruiting chambers? I was looking to control heat/humidity when they drop below a certain level or rise beyond a certain level. I have one that controls a heat mat for small seedling plants i just wanted to know if there are cheaper alternatives out there that anyone knows of?

mycosupply.com but i just use a aquarium heater in a bottle in a box with a small cpu fan to get circulation. I have a digi thermostat and adjust the heaters seting till its around 28c or 82F. I only go to 82f because it might spike up if the room temp goes up.

Greenhouse thermostat with a light bulb:
http://www.northerntool.com/ search for thermostat. $25 for a DIY and $40 for one with a heavy duty cord ready to plug in. A light bulb or 2 in the bottom of a vertical mounted tub. Shelf midway up with cardboard or styrofoam under it to make sure heating is by even convection rather than radiation to the bottom of the box. A small muffin fan will be added soon to keep the temp even.
The heating bulbs in the top incubation box supplied the light for the perlite dual chamber grow box underneath it. Cheap digital thermometer to monitor temp.
I used this method for the colonization chamber and will use an identical one for chronic tek.
(My first stat was a surgically modified aquarium heater. I removed the internal element and soldered some zipcord to it to plug the light bulb into. Just be sure you don't plug in anything that the contacts aren't rated for. I had a heating pad plugged into one and had the perlite grow box sitting on top of it.)
