fruiting chamber?
    #3867298 - 03/04/05 12:52 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

ok, im using a heat pad for my heat source for my fruiting chamber. ive read that you should put the heat pad ontop of the chamber rather than the bottom. whats the significance between putting the heating pad ontop or on bottom of the fruiting chamber? anyone care to shed some light on this?

actually i would think that you would want to put the heating pad on the bottom because heat rises. so if it were on top then it wouldnt be providing heat for the air on the bottom. therefore little or no heat to the casings/cakes. go with putting it on the bottom.

I think the point usually is, when fruiting you dont WANT that much heat. So it goes on the top, not the bottom. If you set it under your PMP, it will have GREAT insulation and that pad could get HOT. And if it gets hot at the bottom of the PMP, thats where your mycelium is. Not a good thing! Heating pads generally arent needed, if it is though, start with it on the top and only put it underneath if it doesnt heat it up well enough.

Where did you read to put a heat pad on top? Heh, first time I've heard this one. Put it on the bottom of your container and monitor the temps. Heat pads can really heat unevenly with the potential to cook the bottom of your tub so keep an eye on it. Possibly put it on a rack or suspended on something.

but try to get rid of your heating pad method of heating ASAP cause they really are a fire hazard... look into a space haater w/ a thermistat for a small scale op

damn, informative... i like it. ill note the use of the heatpad, its all i got right now and im testing it out and see how well it is. the temperature of my chamber is 73 and im fruiting 6 pf jars of p. cubensis cambodian. is that a moderate temperature to fruit them at or would there be a more suitable temperature?

If you read the thread you can see that you can saftly use heating pads...but they can be dangerous so its best to just not use them, generally speaking. If you are carful though and use them right they can be used..its just most cultivators, especially when new, arent carful enough. Its hard to be carful and know what your doing when you dont fully understand the thing your trying to grow yet..

using a folded towel is just adding fuel to the potential fire, and i'm dissapointed of all your guys's answers, almost everyone just commented on how bad it was for the myc, i think my home is just a little more important than some myc i have growing. heating pads arent designed to be running for long periods of time, turn one up on high and give it an hour to heat up to as hot as it will get, and come back 24 hours later and there is a significant difference in the temperature from the heat pad after one day.

my heating pad has been on for weeks now and is still running the same temp constantly so i guess i got a high quality pad, but fallingaway is presenting a legitimate concern for fire, its just not somethign everyone has to worry about

Isn't it just as easy to get a nice fish heater and place it in a container in the middle of the fruiting chamber in some water. Thats what i plan on doing. That way its heating and getting moisture into the air.

73F is a very good fruiting temperature.

When I, not so long ago, started with this hobby I bought a fishtank heater for my FC. But it is still left unused.

Most houses have almost perfect fruiting temps by themselves and no artificial heating is needed then.

I have good grows with temps between 67-76. 67-73 would work as well, I am sure about that.

A few cents bout heating.
