Home made incubators???
    #436597 - 10/25/01 04:55 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

Greetings All:
Has anyone experimented with homeade incubators for pint jars of P. Cubensis?
Anyone had success?
My friend's canary was thinking about hooking up an Aquarium heater in a pan of H20 or maybe even use a heating pad but my friend's Canary is afraid he might overheat and dry out the jars of substrate. My friend's Canary would really like it if someone posted a sucessfull design for an inexpensive home incubator. Thanks!


Purrrr!

That looks like an innovative design which would work well, MM !

however my method isn't original :tongue: - used to be on Alien's site - but I tested it and found it pretty foolproof :

you need - * large plastic storage box with firm lid
                * smaller plastic tub with lid for jars
                * submersible aquarium heater (mine was 25W)

Fill the large box with about 4" water (i used distilled) with a dash of peroxide to discourage contams.
Drill a few small holes in the small plastic tub just under the rim on both sides where the lid fits on to allow warm, moist air to circulate - put the jars in & snap the lid shut.
Have the submersible heater set to about 85*F and attach it to the inside of the big tub below the waterline.
The small tub floats about on the surface and keeps just the right temp - my setup was kept inside a closet to keep them dark and just briefly checked once a day, not allowing much light in...

- good luck Catzeye!
