JC?s double-tub-friendly incubator/heater (TiT alternative)
    #4081129 - 04/21/05 02:26 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Hey all.

I came up with this idea because I needed a means of incubating Double-Tub Fruiting Chambers for the period of time between spawning and fruiting. This may seem excessive or unusual, but it's what works best for me, so I'm sharing it.

I had a fish tank heater I planned to use for a TiT, but a TiT only works with jars and small casings. I needed a better solution... I wanted something that I could use for both jars AND my Double-Tubs during the spawn run. So I came up with this.

As an added bonus, it also works as a fruiting chamber heater for the time of year and/or climates requiring a little extra warmth during fruiting.

Materials Used:

- Fish tank heater with external temperature probe
- Under-Bed storage container (Wal*mart)
- Water w/a little h202 or bleach
- (Optional) Some kind of water-proof sealant
- a blanket or two

(Note: I didn't bother sealing it, personally... but be forewarned: If you don't seal it, fill the container in the spot you intend to use it. I mean, like, the EXACT spot. I tried to move mine around after filling it and dumped a good gallon of water on the floor.. at least a gallon...)

There isn't much construction involved... you'll need to cut a small hole near the top for the heater cord... and the blankets are draped over the top of whatever you're incubating to seal the heat in. (Works a lot better than you might imagine...)

Here come the diagrams:
