Raising Temperature
    #393575 - 09/13/01 07:37 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I have a Tupperware container as my growing chamber. The temperature inside the growing chamber stays static around 73-75. I was wondering what an easy and cost-efficient way of raising that temperature to around 80-85 would be. If I were to use a heating pad under my vermiculite bottom layer, would that harm the babies in any way? If it does, what are other options in the matter?

Thanks in Advance,

A heating pad may dry out the vermiculite layer slightly over a decent amount of time but other than that it will heat up your tupperware container just fine.
