Light exposure to colonizing cakes?
    #3324494 - 11/05/04 02:36 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I just inoculated two caked with B+ yesterday and I am yet to find anything useful for the creation of an incubator. I was wondering if putting them under a light that heats up would be a bad idea. It's just a basic metal light with a 60 watt soft white sylvania light bulb. I have read that they need to be in a dark place but this light is the only good source of heat that I can obtain. Can it be used?  :confused: any help is quite appreciated.  :mushroom2:

cover them in black tshirts. light isn't good at this point. They'll pin too early.

LIght is bad... I don't think that'll work. The tub in tub works great and is cheap and easy to build.

If you insist on using a lamp (as I did but will not next time) put the jars in a light tight container and put that in your light bulb heated space. Worked for me. Temp was hard to maintain but it'll work.

For the price of a fishtank heater, and two rubber maids you could have a nice incubator. Search for "Tub in tub".

Good Luck!

I read a bunch of the incubator teks but lack the motivation to ask everyone I know for a fish tank heater (Already asked everyone I knew for a pressure cooker)and don't have enough currency to purchase one. Now that I know light is bad I guess i'll just have to find myself a tank heater. Much thanks for the help.

Do like elgr suggested if you have to, and cover your jars in black t-shirts or wrap them in a clean towel and put them in the incubation chamber with the light. That way you can still use the light and not worry about causing invitro pinning.

But you should definately upgrade to something a bit more.. effective in time, like a tub in tub, or a temperature controlled heating pad, etc.

I know The Dude has a very cheap incubator. It consists of a cheap styrofoam cooler and a couple spring water bottles. Every night the dude fills the spring water bottles up with boiling water and puts them in the cooler. 24 hrs later, the inside of the cooler is still warm. This does the trick.

I found a good deal at walgreens, for about 30 bucks you can buy a heating blanket and cover the jars with that on low and later put it on the bottom of the tub or casing when fruiting.

for $30, you can build a whole new TnT incubator. I think this is where the smart investment comes in. Rising and falling temp is not as good as constant 84F IMO. Water bottle is cheap, for sure, but if you skip going out 1 weekends, you'll have an awesome incubator for years. Like I said... investment.
