a few questions
    #3812631 - 02/21/05 07:42 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

aight for the last 6 weeks iv been waiting for my 3 jars to fully colonize. only 1 is done right now and i was going to birth it today. my questions are...

1. my terrarium is a fish tank but i dont have a top what would work the best?

2. should i put an electric blanket or a heating pad under the terrarium for warmth?

(pics coming soon)

May God have mercy upon my enemies, because i won't.

a piece of glass for the top go to the dollar store and buy a crap picture toss the picture and keep the glass. or just use tinfoil or syran wrap. and depending if your leaving your jars as cakes or spawning it to a bulk substrate you may need the warmth perhaps not depending on the temp of your room

1) anything that will prevent humidity from escaping. Be creative.

2) that depends on the ambient temperature of your growing area. Low to mid 70's is ideal, but not absolutely required.

1) try a pane of plexiglass from home depot or a similar store.  you can have it cut to the correct size for and additional 50 cents.
Also, pet stores may have an expandable (hinged) glass cover.  I have one of these but the heat from my electric blanket (used for heat, duh) combined with the cold air (I live in denver and the tank was a bit too close to the window) resulted in teh glass (both panes) cracking.  I'm not too worried about the middle one because it's only a crack and not really a split (little, if any, humidity is lost through said crack).  I covered the other cracked panel with a strip of plexi glass i had laying around, that happened to be the exact width i needed.

2) only if you need it :wink:
I know i do!

this is my signature.

1) Already answered well.

2) Room temperature is usually fine.
