Found a super cheap easy way to incubate jars!!

Ok, I found a good way to keep your jars warm and keep it warm for a few days:

-take a protein powder tub  (5lbs.)
-take around 4 dishwashing sponges and wet em

ok, so here's how to do it:

-clean the tub well so there's no powder left
-then squeeze the sponge to get rid of extra water but keep it humid
-put the jars, i think it'll fit like 12 half-pints, inside the tub, 4 per layer (ya you can stack em)
-make sure there's a space in the centre of the 4 jars per layer
-microwave the sponges for around 1 minute so that they become hot
-now stack the sponges horizontally in the tub in the centre (that's what the centre space is for)and if you run out of space jsut place the remaining sponges on top fo the top layer of jars.

the heat from the sponges will dissipate into the air in the tub but the tub will insulate it and it will only slowly release the warmth. i know that not everyone has protein powder tubs in their houses lol but if you do, this is a really good way to do it. i've even healed my sick fish using this method (without hot sponges) and days later the air was still warm inside.

tell me how yours turned out, my jars are colonizing pretty well!!  :cool:

by the way, if you check after 2 days and the inside seems too cool for you then just reheat the sponges

i dunno, more reliable to use a TiT. Plus sponges just soak up bacteria and nasty shit. Having them sit moist and damp is a good way to start growing shit other then myc.

If you want cheap and easy, grab a comfortor, throw it in the dryer, then wrap your jars in the hot sheet and throw it in the closet.
