What kind of sources of heat can you use for incubators/fruiting chambers?

The internal wiring & external contol from an electric blanket is very effective.

Can be had @ thrift stores for around $5.

I agree the 40watt build would be good when u want 12hrs of light...but when u want 12hrs of dark the 50watt fish heater works great.

it really won't matter much either way, mushrooms do need light to pin but unlike
plants, they may pin a little early in some cases but generaly they will not unless
the substrate is fully colonized... in a terrarium/fruiting chamber, the heat
isnt needed.

The tub-in-tub works wonders for both incubation and fruiting. It is really easy to keep a constant temperature. And easy to adjust the temp also. At the right temps its amazing the speed incubation and growth of fruit can occur. Here is an address also. Sorry I haven't quite figured out the linkage. http://www.fungifun.org/pf/incubator.htm

Someone once mentioned using a small water pump to keep the water at an even temp.

Get a blue light from a fish store...best lighting for mushrooms...gives off an errie blue colored light
:thumbup:
and it's a bit more than a bulb....a 4-5 footer is about 20$, a 2 footer is only like 10$ or so

That would be great if people were talking about lights for pinning shrooms and not lights as a heat source and other heat sources :smile:
