Incubating question
    #4437907 - 07/22/05 02:21 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I have my 1 day old inoculated jars in a rubbermaid container, lid on, on top of a comforter on the floor of my room, and a pillow on top.  My room is small and easily heats up when the sun comes up each day to around 80?-83?.  Will this be sufficient to promote colony growth or should I built something better?  My friend said he could get me a space heater, since their in jars the small draft from it won't hurt right? 
I'm just concerned because I have no way to make a TiT just yet, and if anyone knows an easier way to keep up to temp I'd appreciate it.  Thanks guys. :stoned:

the only thing you need to worry about is your temps dropping below the 80 degree mark at night.  The space heater is a good, and a bad idea.  Its good because it can keep the heat constant at night, its bad cuz it can cause a fire.  If you want to make a cheap tub in tub, just buy a second rubbermaid and fill it with warm water and change it every day.  Its a pain in the ass but it will help keep things as close to optimum as possible without burning down your house :smile:

Would it reduce the possibilty of burning down my house if I elevated the heater on a desk with tin foil underneath? Also, is it necessary for me to keep it in complete darkness or is a rubbermaid container opaque enough to stall fruiting if I just close my curtains and heat the room with the heater?

total darkness is best, but, a little light wont hurt too much. It might slow things down a bit. I cant answer your question about the fire hazard. All i know is those things cause a lot of fires every year so to leave one running over night unattended seems like a bad idea. Just my opinion tho, you might be able to run it fine without any problems.

i put my rubbermaid on top of a shelf over my cable reciever (it's in like a glass front tv cabinet) and it really works well. 
fire hazards make me crazy nervous.
i didn't want to deal with a tit either.
good luck :laugh:

i dont see what there is to "deal" with in a tit. Its just h202 and a heater. the only problem is the cord coming out of the bottom tub but you can hide that easy. If you're worried about temps buy a wireless therm, they're like 12 bux at wal mart. Mine works great and i can take it with me all over the house if i need to keep an eye on it.
