Aquarium heater in my poor man's pod...
    #3141130 - 09/15/04 09:06 PM (19 years, 8 months ago)

I was unable to get my poor man's pod temp above 65F using a belt heater. Today, I bought an aquarium heater with the intention of using it to get my temps into the 70s.

The instructions for the heater say not to use it unless the heater is immersed in water, yet the bottom of my pod is just wet perlite. How do other people use an aquarium heater in their pods? I'm at a loss how I can "submerge" the heater in water...

Do a tub in tub. Fill a tub with water of the same size and place heater in the bottom then sink your chamber into the warm water bath. Use zipties or some such deal to hold it down. Be carefull not to let it get to hot you want low 70's.

As for other people suing them, most dont. Some also use a glass jar filled with water and the heater in there. Also provides humidity. Most just leave them at room temperature and they are fine. I can't imagine you really need that heater unless your talking 50's temps and even still you could probably grow cubies alright in 50's.
