I just wanted to know the level of hindrance my jar handling will have on their growth. I realize it takes a while to colonize but I didn't want to impair it by watching it so much.

I'm honestly not expecting much to come of it, I couldn't PC it so I had to steam it. I'm just hoping for at least one jar to eventually fruit something, and I'll be happy. I will definitely be doing WBS next time and I will definitely have a PC ready for that. Seems foolproof!

dime size growth in 3 days is good....relax.

you really need to stop the temp from going up and down so much during incubation.
why is the temp changing inside your incubator?

optimal incubation temps are 81 to 84 degrees F.

you get faster colonization times when you stay in that range.

I don't really have an icubator...I was told my small, hot room was suitable because it stays in that range usually, I try to keep the heater on at night to keep it up there. Any tips for a cheap incubator? I can go out and make one if it's cheap enough.

Tub in Tub incubator...

2 rubbermaid containers...and one 200 watt fully submersible aquarium heater.







The large rubbermaid is the bottom.
You put the water and 200 watt fully submersible aquarium heater in the bottom rubbermaid.
You can put around 6" of water in the bottom rubbermaid.

Then you drop the smaller rubbermaid into the larger one.
Your jars will go in the top rubbermaid...the smaller one.
Put the lid on and monitor the inside of the (top container) incubator to get it up to the proper temps.
Adjust as needed til you get the incubator at the right temps...by playing around with the temp setting on the aquarium heater.
After you get the incubator at 81 to 84 degrees F. put your jars in.
I like mine set at 81 degrees F.

Be sure and monitor the temp inside your incubator for a few days to make sure that its working properly.

It's actually very easy to do...and your colonization times will be better by having a steady temp.

Actually, I'm probably going to leave them where they are. The thermometer has basically stayed in the low 80's for the past 3 days, so I'm not too particularly worried about the incubation. Should I leave the Rubbermaid lid off? My 7 jars all have the tape removed from the holes due to the dry vermiculite layer, so I used the Rubbermaid lid as added protection but I think it may just be cutting the fresh air supply too much. What do u think?

You should be fine, I mean if you're really conserned you could do an air exchange every day but you should be fine.
Take care
