Definitely 75. The difference in growth won't be that severe. I'm curious, why can't you control the temps?

Try insulating the heat pad so the medium temp is limited. You could probably achieve this by placing a non-combustible material in between the heat pad and the box. I was thinking about a piece of carpet remnant, but it may melt on you if it gets too hot. Maybe not though.

heating pads just worked horrible for me, it was the bain of my grow until i build the tit...it wasnt that expensive..and i wasted money and time trying to make the heating pad work...
too cool on top of the jars and too hot on the bottom!...truely horrible, at least in my experience...

good luck

namaste,
captmueller

i have these little Tro-Pack tropical fish warming packts. they are about the size of the chalk sock on the pitchers mound, and have iron powder and other things in it that when u shake it gets warm. on the package it says Max Temp: 110, avg Temp 70, duration of heat: 24 hours. I threw two of them in my incubation chamber and every time i check the temp its around 84-85. i have an unlimited free supply of these things, and they seem to be working great so far. ive only used them for a few days though. Has anyone else heard of these things?

no i dont. its all real

is it also true that u should should get the temp for 83 tops because the jars colonizing(inside jar) actually raise the temp by a few degrees?
