how to heat up fruiting chamber
    #3840770 - 02/27/05 12:43 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

Hi,
I am new to the whole growing process and am on my third attempt. Everything is going really well except for the temperature in my fruiting chamber is way too low, around 64 degrees. I am trying to get it up to about 70 degrees as that is the optimal temperature for fruiting. I looked around in the FAQ's and couldn't find anything on this topic.
If anyone could please tell me how to increase the heat in my fruiting chamber it would be appreciated.
Also in live in an apartment where I do not control the heat, it just comes on when it wants to so I cannot increase the room temperature.
thanks,
Melissa

Welcome. You can place a heating pad under your fruiting tub, or build a tub-in-tub to maintain temps as well. TiT setup is more even, consistent heating; but you can get away with a heating pad as long as you make sure it's not roasting the bottom of your material.

Sweet set-up diver :thumbup:

Just wanted to say that I agree, but here it's always 74F, so no need to worry about temps. :smirk:

Good luck on your grow :thumbup:

thats the same set up I use above, works great! You really REALLY need to have your temp around 80. 60-70 way to low.

Ummm...Cray

60-70 isn't way to low...Well it is for incubation anyways..

Optimal conditions for Incubation=80-84F
Optimal conditions for Fruiting=70-74F

Nonsense, 80F is not ideal for fruiting.

He will be fine with temps around 70-74F.

check to make sure your heating pad stays on. some newer ones will turn off after 30 min. I bought one like this and had to return it.

Ow a real woman? Always welcome, :grin: but even thankfullness from a guy is appreciated :P

74F is good fruiting temp, and better 2 degrees colder then warmer.
