Heating pad is drying out the jars
    #408075 - 09/29/01 06:21 AM (15 years, 8 months ago)

My fairy god-mother has a heating pad underneath some jars. They started to colonise really well, but now they have stopped, and the wheat looks very dry. Temp is about 80F.

This is a total disaster.

Will adding PC steralized water via a syringe under a glovebox work or is this a recipe for certain contamination?

Does anyone have any other ideas for adding water to the jars? It's taken months for my fairy godmother to get this far (it's been one stuff up after another) and if she loses these jars, she's gunna cry.

Adding sterile water is a good bet on saving those jars.

yes you definately need to rehydrate them..next time use a water based heater for incubation..an aquarium hearter and a styrofoam cooler work well..

I've been trying to tell people to stay away from those type's of heater's. You always read a post about them causing some kind of trouble, but you never see the people who use heaters from a pet store have problems. If you get a chance, try and pick one up from a pet store. Their thin and used for underneth a tank to keep snakes and lizards warm. The heater you use can get hot real fast. Makes them alittle difficult for the newbie to use, because you have to keep an eye on them. If you go to school, or have to leave the house for what-ever reason, these type's of heaters take an optional temp. gauage to keet the temp. where you want it. Their alittle pricey, but it's worth every penny! Good Luck...hope everything works out for your littlefairy ;)
