Heating Pad?
    #2992568 - 08/11/04 08:29 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

When using a mycobag in incubation period, for B+ or Ecuador strain, does it need to be kept above room temp (about 72)? If so, which I believe I've heard, would wraping a heating pad around it work? thanks

if it is a cube then you should always incubate 84-86 deg. f. and no, never use a heating pad for anything except soothing body aches.

What would be good to use then that is convenient? Im thinking maybe behind the seats of my truck. Its been averaging a little over 80 degrees here. Just is there any danger of overheating?

absolutly...you need consistant temps and a car is BAD for that. When its 80 out it could be 100 in your car killing your myc. Then theres night time. Find a warm spot in your house (think water heater, top of fridge ect) anywhere that gets 80-86 and stick it there. A Fish tank heater works well. I would imagine you could get a heating pad to work but I dont know for sure. Just dont put it directly to the bag, use the pad to heat up a chamber with the bag in it, blankets seperating..something. Mabye wrap it up using a few towels and in a drawer with the bag..dunno just some thoughts. Ghetto but may work ok.

And remember too hot=dead myc, too cold=slow growth, but not dead myc (to a point)

My foaf uses a heating pad frequently with satisfactory results. Although, this isn't recommended! They can be dangerous. If you are in a pinch and need to use one, just don't set anything with weight on top of it. On a note: Room temp (70-above) usually will do just fine, it just might take 2-3 days longer...but patience is a virtue. Good luck!

QandA how exactly does he use the heat pad? Because as Scat said directly on it will most likely kill the myc. Also anybody know price ranges of a fish tank heater?

off ebay, i just got a second with the temp control seperate and such, real nice for tub in tub..was about 23 bucks? Something like that..just put it in today for a second incubator..works wonderfully. Bar far the best method. A bit much for just a bag though...

Oh another one AFOAF uses is a box on top of his computer..its some sort of silly fast processor and the vent blows right under the tub. Keeps it about 82. Would be a little less for a normal computer but they still put out heat.

heh, I coincidentally had my tub on top of one of my computers at first but it didn't work so good. So I built a tub-in-tub instead.

Tub in tub costs:

Heater: $10-$30 (Depending on wattage and vendor). Wal-mart, ebay, petsmart...blah blah. But it must be FULLY SUBMERSIBLE.

Tubs= 2-10 bucks a piece (you need 2). Wal mart. I feel like I just ate a bunch of food at the buffet in the TEK section and I felt obligated to vomit it all over your forehead.

Reading between the lines made easy...

Read the incubation teks and then ask questions.
