A question about incubators...
    #3238231 - 10/10/04 04:00 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Hello all, I am brand new to the world of shroom growth.

I have been hanging around www.shroomtalk.com and talking with them, however I need a question asked here.

I'm about to recieve my 1st spores ("Z" Strain) to grow

I am using the new PF Tek on this site. I know that after I inoculate my jars with the spores I need to store them in a dark place at 80-85f, 85 being about the best. I have tried a few ways to get my area around the future jar box up to that temp. However EVEN with a 125W heat lamp I can only get it up to like 79f.

Does anyone here have a tek or maybe a picture of making a good incubator?

You can read my grow log here, any comments would be nice.

Thanks!

tub in tub is the best way
two rubbermaid tubs
one 100w submersible aquarium heater (~$15 at any pet store)
water to the top of the aquarium heater in one rubber maid, with the second rubbermaid resting on top.
adjust temp until 86 is held constant
a very easy method- known as "Tub in tub incubator"

Does it have to be 100w or is that just the best one to get?

Should you keep the temp in the incubator lower since the jars are a few degrees higher inside or should you just set the incubator to 85 or 86? I just set up a incubator at 82 and in 2 days went from no myc for a week to some nice small spots in about half the jars. Would uping the temp speed up the process or am I good where im at right now?

I use a 25w one and it has no problems with keeping the incubator at 85-86f in a relatively cold room (about 65f).

Your good at 82 or 83.Don't let it go over 86.To much heat starts slowing down the prosess.
