PmP doubling as incubator?
    #3610148 - 01/10/05 11:43 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I was wondering if I build a poor man's pod according to magash's specs could I double it as an incubator. Of course there would be slight modifications but this is what I'm thinking:

Leave Air Pump on for air exchange (hourly on/off?)
keep lid slightly off for lower humidity
keep temperature up
keep in dark place.

On another note, I need to heat my PmP and i was thinking about using an aquariam heater, but would i have to submerge it? if I did submerge it would I still be able to get optimum temperatures?

thx a lot

If your doing pf jars no need for FAE or humidity.

Make a heat bomb if you want and just sit your jars around it. Just put the tub in a dark spot, and keep at the right temp. Search for Heat Bomb.

I looked up heat bomb in the forums but didnt really find anything. Could I load the pmp with no water, but keep air going for exchange?

keep temperature high, then when it came time for fruiting bring humidity up.

if you use an aquarium heater without water it will burn up quick.

Heat bomb = a bottle filled with water and an aquarium pump stuffed in the top (like a 2 liter or even just a 20oz..I imagine a wide mouth 32oz would do the trick)...

Arrange your shit around the bottle...dry, small, warm.

Peace

Yep. Be dirty. Try duct tape. Mushroom growing really brings out the skills I acquired in kindergarten craft time.

So true... Nap-time between inoculations is getting tedious though!
