2 Questions: Temperature & Venting
    #3580329 - 01/04/05 06:13 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hi All.

First, thanks to everybody here for the information on this site. It's been invaluable to learning how to start my first grow. Here are my (kind of picky) questions:

1. I've got an incubator set up in a small tupperware bin in bin, just big enough for 8 half-pints, with a 25 watt aquarium heater. I can either get the temperature to fluctuate between 85.1 and 84.2 or between 82.0 and 83.3. Can't get it to go inbetween and I don't want to keep messing with it. Which range is better? I realize this might be splitting hairs, but what I've seen on this site says don't go above 84.

2. If I'm doing half-pint jars with foil, do I need to take off the top layer of foil and expose the syringe holes to let CO2 escape? Or is the foil "seal" loose enough to let that happen on its own?

Thanks again in advance.

85-84 is good.

The foil seal is loose enough to allow excess gas buildup to excape as long as you didnt tape over the holes.
