My friend uses the aquarium heater when she cases. Keeps her casings at about 85F. Perfect.

For incubation she uses a terarrium heating pad on top of the incubator and a soil heater underneath (Although its a really crappy but cheap way of going about it)

aquarium heater goes into a large pickle jar. The water inside the jar is heated and so is the rest of the terarrium. Takes up very little floor space. The heating pads she uses do not have temp regulators. You can buy a simple dimmer switch to regulate temp if you wanted to.

No need to rest the casing trays in water (bad idea).. Just do what my friend does and use a huge pickle jar with a heater and bubbler inside. Works like a dream. My friend laughs at people using humidifiers and perlite. HA HA HA

Sorry to bud in but aren't you supposed to keep your jars at about 70 deg.?
I know thats what PF says in his instructions.
Please correct me if I'm wrong cause I'll try anything to get quicker colonization.

Most all cubie strains grow faster at more like 85 degrees. The problem with this temp range is that if there is even a single green mold spore in a jar that, it too will take off much faster too and might over power the jar. In other words, if one is absolutely sure that the jars are 100% free from containaments, after inoculation, temps around 80 to 85 will greatly speed up the process.

Under similar circumstances, my friend uses a plastic ice chest, like you'd use for camping, and a 1 gallon jar full of water along with an aquarium heater. Keeps the jars mid 80's and very humid, so they don't dry out. Simple, low maintenance and safer than heating pads. Mid 80's is optimum growth temp for cubies.

Heating Pads are a bad idea, because they do not normally poses a temperature contol. They may have a heat control, where you can choose between low and high, but it does not take into consideration the surrounding (room) temp.
If you get a hold of a WATER BED HEATER, you can use it. It has a heating pad built in, but it comes with a thermostat. This works well, because you can dial in the EXACT TEMP you want. I have also rigged this to use lights/heating elements other than the heating pad that came with the water bed heater.
Another note. If you go to a Reptile/pet store you can get heating lamps that are ceramic with a wire core in the middle. These do not give off any light, but plenty of heat. This is great for both incubation chambers, and fruiting chambers if you live in a cold climate.

Not only do I get all the heat, humidity and o2 I need, it's all adjustable through either bringing the heat down via the heater (they all have dials you can set), or.. I can put a lid on the jar and have it heat through that without pumping out moist air. Also whats nice is if I want to be extra sterile, I just dump a little h2o2 into the jar.
