Need some advice
    #4446903 - 07/24/05 03:42 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

6 Jars inoculated last night.they got 1 - 1 1/2 cc's per jar (its hard to get exactly 1/4 cc per hole) Currently they are in a shoe box with a clean towel wrapped around them. I plan on putting a grow light close to the box to raise temps in box. Does this sound like a good idea? I am lacking alot of supplies to make a good incubation chamber. So any suggestions on how i can improve conditions for my jars with $0?

As long as it's dark and the temp inside the box is 70-80? you're cool.

stick the box on top of the frig or on top of your hot water heater.

they will heat the jars...

til you can put together a incubator.

Depending where you live, right now the temps are so high that you dont need a inncubation chamber.... If yoiur concerned with temps do as they say and put ontop of fridge, tv, water heater etc... I noticed that the jars I jsut left alone with out putting in chamber seemed to colonize much quicker than the other ones.... Im finding out that this hobby requires ALOT OF PATEINTS!@! Heh, and Im short of that sometimes... I can not wait for my first flush... Good Luck to you...

sweet glad to hear that's workin out for you. I thought id be the only one to try that out, actually made me kinda laugh when i read that. How warm do you keep the box. Kuz like i said my house is 70-75 degrees all the time but i got them in a closet which is significantly warmer since there is no vents, but i still feel i need some more heat. What do you think? Is this the 3rd day for you? If not how are they looking now?
