air pump question
    #3520686 - 12/19/04 04:01 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I'm trying to setup an air pump circulation for my incubation chamber, but I don't know exactly how it is supposed to go. I've got the pump itself and two air line tubings. Do I just connect the two tubings to the outlets on the pump and stick the tubings in the water or what?

if you want to increase humidity you need to buy a thing called an air/bubble stone (description: a round thing that is real course about 1 1/2 in long) and then stick into water. this will allow for humidity. but if you want it strictly for air exchange then just take the tubing and put it in the terrerium by drilling hole and inserting tube and silicone to stop leaks.

Why do you want air exchange in your incubation chamber? This is not necessary. I believe what your going for is a poor mans pod? If so this is a fruiting chamber. If that is what your looking for try searching for the Poor Mans Pod using the search engine. There is a detailed thread about how to make this.

Running a TIT. I thought a air pump would be helpful to blow the water around to better circulate the heat ratio. Second question..

I don't have access to a pressure cooker so therefore I must boil to sterilize. How long should this process take place?

for PF cakes, I just put about 1.5-2 inches of water in the bottom of the pot, turn it on medium or so, and let the water boil out ofit. Once the water has evaporated, they should be sterile.

90 minutes.
Don't let all the water evaporate, this can easily overheat the jars and dry them out. Start with 1 inch of water and monitor the level from time to time, replacing any lost water with boiling hot water.
