    #3210176 - 10/03/04 05:12 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

For using an xmas lights in a cooler incubator... can u replace the cooler with a large rubbermaid container?
The only cooler i have won't fit all of the casings.

You dont want light during incubation.

i know that. the lights give off heat and the jars are covered by a towel so that the light doesn't shine on them

Why not just use a tub-in-tub incubator?

yes, i would be worried that xmas lights wouldn't keep yr jars any where near warm enough...
be sure to monitor your temp
just a few degrees over or under the optimal temp and you will slow growth

There was a post a while ago saying that xmas lights as a heat source would work good. If it doesn't, can any one tell me a
good and cheap incubator method?

I'm on my first grow and didn't want to invest anything unless I go into it. I've got my jars in a light proof container in a closet with a 60W light on. Keeps the temps at a steady 82 or 83. It works quite nice. Jars seem to be loving it.

I'm going to go with a proper incubator next time around to keep things a little more stealth, although that is not a priority.

This technique works great for me. The lights are certainly hot enough and with a buffer layer of towels, it's a nice even heat. My incubation chamber is in the cabinets under my bathroom sink. I keep a couple Igloo coolers down there with 14 lights each and some heating pads with buffer layers for incubating casings.

Tub-in-tub is NOT the only way. It's too large for me to fit under the cabinet and I don't want any more tubs laying around the house than I already have.

Anyway, back to your question. Yeah, a rubbermaid should work. You might lose a little more heat and may require a couple more lights. It'll definitely work. Just gotta tweak it.
