Hrmmm tub heat generation?
    #4326443 - 06/22/05 10:17 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Alright... I stuck it out last night and spawned 3 tubs with about 4" substrate each.  I've got them bagged and everything (to keep light out and such)... but I wonder about the heat generation.  Where I live it is somewhat cold, and my apartment is around a constant 68F... So I'm not sure if it's going to be sufficient or if I need to go buy a cheap heater.

I used worm castings, verm, and straw as the substrate... but today (about 12 hours later) I cracked the door and put my hand on the tub to see if it's going nicely, and it was just all cold and stuff... Should I worry or does it take longer for it to start generating heat? 

Thanks for the help! :smile:

Someone much wiser than myself once gave me this advice, and nothing more at the time...

Build an incubator!

How big are they. I know they're 4" deep, but what are the dimensions of the container ?

Ah, they are 75 quart bins, a little too big for an incubator.. sadly :frown: I think a small heater may be in order here...

Around what temp do I want the room?  I was thinking of getting one of those oil filled radiators, a little more safe and I'd have the comfort of knowing my place won't burn down :p

By the way nice dark side logo :smile:

75 quart to big...? First of all you will only fill around 1/6 of the bin with water and a 15 gallon aquarium heater(one of the smallest) would be more than enough to do the job.

A controlled environment is the way to go :thumbup:

won't generate much heat, if any on its own the way manure does.
those oil filled radiant heaters are nice. 'cause thy don't dry up the air like a space heater /w fan would .
you could even put a can of water on top of it to help humidity :cool:
