Higher Temperature?
    #2634518 - 05/03/04 11:31 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

Hi, I am currently awaiting for some jars to innoculate.....but it is doing so at room temp which is about 70-75 degrees. There in my closet right now.....I want to get them warmer without having to crank the heat..... I dont have like an incubator or anything like that....is thing else I can do to raise the temp? Heat rises right, so what if I put them in my attic or something..? I dont know how much higher the temp is in there though....help please thx

A lightbulb with foil wraped around it. and make sure you havea thermometer so you can see what the rooms temp is. I wouldnt pu titn in your attic because the temp fluctuates too much.

Gr0wer is right. It most likely gets too cold at night in the attic, and too hot in the day. Just place an electric blanket on the floor of your closet on low setting. You should be ok then. Monitor the temps though to be sure.

Just adding to your post-hope you dont mind-Just make sure it is a low wattage bulb!

The foil just keeps it dark for good germination.

If you keep it on the low setting, it should be safe 'cause it won't generate much heat - but enough to keep your little friends happy.

something else that works is putting them on top of your hot water tank pipes, depending on what type of tank, setup etc....

keep in mind that at lower tempertures they still grow just alot slower.I had some jars I innoculated a while back and just put them on a shelf in my workshop,because my incubators were full.It averaged about 75 degrees.It was a ood 9 or 10 days before I saw any signs of colonization.They did good,but took a long time about 5 weeks to colonize 100%.I had to dunk them at birth to rehydrate.But I got great flushes out of them.

Butternut squash are softer than acorn or other types of squash, which makes them easier to cut and prepare.

A fish tank thermometer that sticks on the outside of the fishtank works pretty good. (the flat stip kind with adhesive on the back) Just clean a spare jar or any empty food jar that is clean and stick the thermometer to the outside of it and throw it in with the jars. They are only a couple of bucks and have a spot that corresponds to 86deg and are pretty easy to read.

Yep walmart has one for $7.Thats your best bet if you dont wanna go all out.Just buy that and a small rubbermaid for $2 and your set,its definatly better than an electric blanket or heating pad.those will work but the heater in the jar will give better results. :goodluck:

Well over a hundred and your getting in the real redline area,but anything over 86 degrees and they will slow down or stall.If you have a choice between a little under and a little over 86F(the ideal temp)then under that is your better bet.They will grow slower,but theres no chance they will be damaged by heat.When they get too cold,as long as its not freezing they kinda go into hybernation,but it doesnt hurt them.The cheap fishtank heater at walmarts a good way to go.Its safe,has its own thermostat,is cheap and a small rubbermaid in your closet should be able to hide easy enough.You can even through clothes on it,and it will work real well,all for less than $10.
