Ideal sizes for incubator/chambers
    #3511542 - 12/17/04 01:02 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

The following is a fairly large post. I did do a lot of scouring over old posts/archives, but its just too much information to assimilate into something useful at this point. I can make a decision/s on my own, but now I'd appreciate input/opinions...please no criticism, at least if you do, pm me it and dont fill my post up with non-related replies..thanks for any feedback everyone, I appreciate it a lot =)

tommorow is our monthly discount day at work, and I happen to get 30-50% off any storage type containers in the store. So I wrote down the dimensions of all them and had a few questions. First id like to know for those of you that have a TiT, what size do u have?*i know size doesnt matter, the bigger the more it can hold..ect* I just want to know what you all are happy with and what's worked.

Also, i plan on building fruiting chamber. All I was able to find for humidifiers was 'vick's ultrasonic humidifier' for $58 & 'vicks coolmist humidifier' for $25. I know the first should work, but can I rig the second to work as well? Also the only aqua heater we have is 'slim tech 8 inch 50watt' by spot brand, runs for $9. After looking at this it didn't seem fully submersible, but if i just used it on the side of the TiT, should work? I know the source of the heat wouldnt be universally centered but..would this keep the water heated?
Heres the avail containers:

22gallon 25x19x17inch
18gallon 24x16x16inch
40gallon 37x21x18.5inch
35gallon 32x18x18inch
46gallon 134x54x36cm
41quart 89x42x15cm
50gallon 42x21x18inch

For a growing chamber setup just using a big container, wouldnt the shallowest applicable one that was long and thing or equally lxw be best, since u can stack. In that case would the 50 gallon one be best, 18 inch is enough clearance and i could prob fit 3 tin dishes in there comfortably. Also I wanted to buy a grow light, I know its not neccisary in most cases, but I do so...would a normal flourescent give off the proper spectrum colors or would i be best off with a full spectrum light like GE's 'sunshine' bulb?

any light will do for the lighting. i'd go with the florescent because they don't let off much heat.

i'd give my mushies at least a foot of vertical room to grow. other than that. it doesn't matter. if you're doing a tub in tub though, smaller tubs are easier to heat.

Light? Why don't you just leave it under sunlight? Isn't it the best source of light?

I never supposed for the love of me that it would all be so vivid.

its winter here and the way my house faces outward, the lil sunlight that does get in isn't much..i know its prob enough, but i plan on using the flourescent to grow 'other' things too, including some germinating cactii...
