terrarium doubling as incubator
    #3911348 - 03/13/05 02:29 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

right now i have a terrarium, the one in the MMGG (hand misting, drip sheild, etc...), and i am using it as an incubator until the cakes are ready for birth. I have twelve jars incubating. My ecuadors and africans are colonizing faster than the other jars, so they will be ready for birth first. I was wondering if it would be safe to leave incubating jars on one side of the terrarium while keeping fruiting cakes on the other side. Thanks for your help.

incubation and fruiting temperatures are different. for colonization 80-86 is ideal and for fruiting 68-74 is ideal. thats not to say you cant colonize at a lower temperature, it just means they will colonize slower.

make a TIT...tub in tub incubator...for colonizing your jars.

and keep the one you are using...for a fruiting chamber.

good luck!~
