Computer as an incubator
    #3121720 - 09/11/04 11:22 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I've been using my computer to incubate my jars. And it seems to work pretty damn good so far. I've done 2 batches so far using it as an incubator.

I'm doing a stealth grow so it works perfect. For anyone interested in a no cost stealth incubator.

of course your computer will have to be on 24/7.

Well, I've killed one jar by putting it on top of my 17" monitor(too hot). I shell try in the computer. There is enough space to fit a jar above the HDD.

Yeah, a computer works, it's just a little wasteful.

It's also very cramped and a pain for that reason.

Good luck shrooming.

the only concern I could see is if there is some contact from metal to a PC board

i wouldn't think they would be good for more than a couple jars either...as a matter of fact not very practical at all unless your trying to grow 2-3 jars super stealth...but i still like the name puterbater! :lol:

well when you arent trying to stock up for a year at a time the puterbater? is fine... I have a couple of machines that are capable of holding 10-12 jars but
I have seen other ways that work just as well or better...

i tried this once with a bag, and the dry air inside the computer completely dried out the cake. Be careful.

Why put it in the computer when you can put your jars in a shoebox next to your modem?That way your jars aren't going to dry out.

Computer is excellent source of heat, a CPU puts off more heat per square inch than a nuclear reactor.

I wanted to move one of my computers upstairs near my incubator but it would be a little inconvenient for me :laugh:
