first post / good incubator setup?
    #2815190 - 06/21/04 09:51 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

Hi everyone,

Just finally took the plunge into growing my own mushies. It's definately a cool hobby so far =)

I setup my substrate last Tuesday (standard pf, with organic BR and verm), pressure cooked it, and then inoculated it on wednesday night with pink buff.

I was very careful as far as sterility. I steralized the syringe after each injection. However, I think I went a bit light on the injections (Used about 9.5cc on 12 jars) as I had leftovers.

I have been checking the jars daily, and noticed growth ranging from the size of a dime to the size of a quarter on about 75% of the jars. I have the jars sitting in a dark cupboard where they are out of the way. I am wondering if a bit more heat will help them, which is why im interested in a good incubator setup. The average temperature right now in the area I live is between 65-80 degrees. I have read that the best growth occurs around 85 or so.

Would I benefit from having the temps be a bit higher and a bit more stable?

What type of heater setup could i use to get this leveled out around 80 - 85? If somone could point me in the right direction, I would really appreciate it. =)

Tub in tub turned out great for me in winter. Those 1/2 pt jars were done in 2 to 4 weeks. Just like the book said.
Now to fight the heat of summer.
:goodluck:
