Heating a Double Tub
    #3796854 - 02/18/05 03:29 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Anyone tried heating a double tub yet? I have to fruit in a cold room and need a setup that I am able to heat. Temp of the room will be 30-45 over the course of fruiting.

The only way I can think of heating a DT would be to make the bottom tub a TiT with a heater. I think condensation would be a major problem though. I am more than likely going with a simple PMP with a heater, but wanted to know if anyone had a way to heat a double tub.

There are MANY ways to make an incubator.
Look at the stuff you have laying around the house. Heating pads and electric blankets can be used to create a warm area.

Its really very simple. 15 dollars US for a fishtank heater. 2 rubbermaids can be found for 4-5 dollars each, depending on size, so for 20-25 dollars you have a very reliable incubator.

First, thank you Victor, just wanted ot know if anyone tried it yet.

I don't want an incubator. I want to heat double tubs. They are used as fruiting chambers. I will be fruiting in a cold area and need to heat them to keep them at room temp. Read about double tubs in the grow log section. It is basically putting a tub upside down on another tub and using it as a small greenhouse with zero maintainence.

I think all I need to worry about is condensation on the top tub but it should be ok I think.
