Humidity while incubating
    #452878 - 11/09/01 02:39 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

AFOAF is using an aquarium heater to keep her incubating chamber at warm temperatures. The temperatures are staying within margins for colonization, but...

Condesation is building up on the lid and dripping back on the jars. What is a good alternative to keep the incubator and proper temps while not creating humidity. She is contemplating using filter disks, but wouldn't moisture dripping on the disk lead to contam probs and such? Should needs to upgrade to a larger space for incubation also, right now she is using a small cooler (plastic) but is thinking of moving into a LARGE styrofoam type for increased space. She has run out of room in her cooler and needs the increased space but wants to set this new space up right so she doesn't have this humidity problem anymore in the new chamber.


This is a work of fiction. I don't know anything.

Dry heat will dry your jars, you want a humid environment. With filter disks, leave foil over the jars.
