Heating my closet
    #3644064 - 01/18/05 05:43 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I haven't been able to come up with a good system to heat my closet. It takes up about 20 cuft. of space and the door is a reg house door(of course). But everytime I open it the temp instantly drops and has a hard time stabilizing. After sitting all day it's at 72-74deg which is about tops. I have a warm mist which I can't seem to synchronize with a timer well enough to warm yet not over humidify. I just installed a pickle heater but that doesn't seem to make a big diff maybe because of my closet size. Plus it just adds a fire risk. Any suggestions?

yeah man your good, if you wanna go even further w/ temp
you can lower the temp from 74 to 68-70 to induce pinning/fruiting.
make sure you have nice even colonization before you do this

instead of heating the whole closet why dont you heat the incubator and/or fruiting chamber individually?

I've already got one flourescent candleabra shaped light at top and a string of rope lights(give off some heat! ) so I don't need anymore light especially since they will have no effect durring their 12hr off cycle.

And by the way the whole closet is the terrarium. Have seprate inc.

NOS did not read all the replies but,

fruiting is FINE in low 70!
just build a separate TIT to incubate!

Good luck
MF

PS: I look at my temp, in my room it is 68F now, it will drop more in the night. And my mushrooms? They love it! :thumbup:

Ok yes. I constructed my closet just for this purpose, so, no as much as I was tempted to go with a orange shag I left the rug out. :smile: I just got done making an expansion chamber out of a bleach bottle so hopefully we can keep the river flowing out the bottom to a min.
Take care all
