question on incubator construction
    #2586807 - 04/21/04 02:22 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

im a first time grower, and ive just made my incubator with the tupperware bins and aquarium heater. if my parents could see me now.....theyd be so proud. anyways, ive not found anywhere that tells me how much water i should put in the bin. should i just be filling enough to submerge the heater or should there be more? say, enough to cover the bricks? enough to submerge some of the inner bin?

You want the inner tub to be submerged about half way into the water. Go by a cheap, $10 water fountain like the one's you can get at a Dollar Store and take the water pump out. Put the water pump in your tub to help circulate the water for better heat distribution, it makes a big difference! Also, lay something such as a piece of foam on the bottom so your jars don't sit directly on the bottom of the tub as it may cause them to dry out or get to hot. Good Luck!!

How many times do I have to tell you, I was running through the woods and tripped on some mushrooms!!! Well, at least I'm not lying.:crazy:
