best incubator for mycelium colonization?
    #4514858 - 08/09/05 05:17 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

I know I am very new to posting to this site so bear with me. I have visited this site off and on throughout the years but have yet to grow some fungi.

One question...

What is your favorie method for maintaning 85? F mycelium colonization? Since I am a chemist, I looked online to see how much fancy, temp controlled incubators cost. These, of course, are much too costly for this home enthusiast. Do you all use the "rubbermaid in a rubbermaid" with an aquarium heater as an affordable alternative?

much respect...
illchemist

You can get temp-controlled heaters around, have seen them at Walmart recently. They cost about 50-60 bucks, but they do save headaches. By the time you buy a submersible pump and the rubbermaids, it adds up. A little extra cash in the start makes for saved time.

A dead fridge, or upright freezer works great - as an incubator.

Tin-foil wrapped small watt light bulb on an adjustable dinner switch will suffice as a heater. So will an aquarium heater w/thermostat - in a water bottle.

thanx for the info...

Agar, I don't mean to change the subject and this probably doesn't belong here... but with a sig like that, you asked for it... How can you eat psychedelics and have so much hate in your heart? Please let it go, man. It will eat at you like a disease and cause more suffering to you than anything a terrorist could ever physically do to you.

luv & respect...
