temp fluctuations.
    #2981721 - 08/09/04 03:18 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

a friend of mine innoculated 12 1/2 pint jars 3 days ago. he is growing invitro so he is using lights as his inncubation heat source. he is planning on getting a timer for the lights but until then he wants to know if the temp flucuations is ok. he has kept it between 75 and 89 degrees. its mostly been around 83 because he stops it at 86-87 if he catches it in time. at night it drops to 75 because he is sleeping and cant plug it back in. there was one time when he was setting it up and he didnt know how hot it would get and it got up to 97 degrees. there is no signs of growth yet, but there is a tiny tiny ammount of barely noticable condensation in the jars. should it be fine until he can get a timer to auto turn the lights on and off to keep it in between 80-86?

As long as the temp doesn't go above 106, the jars won't die. However, the closer you can keep it to 80-86 range, the better.
If you cant get the temp to stabilize, you may want to try a different heat source

i think once he gets the timer for the lights (maybe today) then he will be able to have it on for 10 minutes and off for 50. sumtin like that. he will have to play with the times to see what makes it stay in the 80-86 range.

the chamber is insulated to prevent light from escaping, so it stays warm for a long time.
