Heat Bomb Help?
    #4020873 - 04/06/05 11:12 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I made a heat bomb for my incubation chamber about 2 days ago. It has seemed to help increase some myc growth. I put a 50 watt submersable heater into about 1-1.5 qt. plastic jar. My incubation chamber is a cardboard box thats just big enough for 5 qt. jars and the heat bomb. I put a T-shirt over the top the keep light out and heat in. Anyway even w/ the heater turned up all the way it only heats my little chamber to about 80-82. Basically right at 80 all the time. I was just wondering if there was anyway to bump the heat up to about 83-85? I figured a 50watt heater in such a little chamber would heat it up easily. Any advice?

I try to keep my incubation chamber right at 80 F. I'm almost positive that it doen't need to be much warmer than that.

Maybe my jars are too dry. They've been inoculated for about 2 weeks. They just now started showing myc. again. They stalled after about 8 days. They are qt. WBS by the way. They were at 70, so hopefully the new 80 degree temp. will get them going again. They've only been at 80 for 2 days, so maybe they just need to get adjusted. If they were too dry would they still continue to grow more myc. each day?

hey ho :smile:

basically, the heat is dependant on the size of the bottle and the heater,
i used a 75watt heater for the original tek and it was no problem at all
to keep temps stable.

take road's advice and wrap your inc box or pack then into a cooler.
peace ohm :mushroom2:
