heat source
    #4576851 - 08/24/05 11:57 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

So i'm about to birth my brf cakes and stick them in single rubbermaid fruiting chambers with damp perlite base. Light will not be a problem as they will have plenty of access to a natural source, but i need a consistent heat source for two single chambers. The containers are about 3.5 ft x 1.5 ft and about 1ft in height. I'm considering buying a couple of heat pads from spore works, what do you all use to control temp in that all-important range?

I wouldn't recommend a heating pad to heat grow chambers, but would be lying if I said I've never used one and gotten by with it. They heat really unevenly in my experience. Tub-in-tub doubles as a great fruiting chamber if you have a clear top and lid. Terrific for those cold winter months where temp control is a must.

if you do use a heat pad use one of these the temp sensor goes in with the shrooms and the temp is controled from there.  :thumbup:

I used a heat lamp 2 feet from the lid of my tub.  It was for lizards, but I had to eat them when I needed the lamp. :hehehe:

Anyway, it worked pretty good.  I think the lid of the tub heated up and transferred to the air inside so it was pretty even heating.  It jumped the temp that last 10 degrees from room temp to ~85.  Of course, a heat lamp in a closet is dangerous...

Well, I don't know (so don't answer, stupid), but it is something like 100F. It depends on the spores and the kind of heat I'm sure, but suffice it to say you don't want them hotter than they would get in the sun. Even that might be too hot in the right conditions.

I put an adjustable temperature electric blanket on the floor and put my rubbermaid fruiting chamber on top of the blanket. Then I bought a 12 dollar thermometer/hygrometer from the petstore and stuck it in the chamber. It took me 2 days to get the temperature just right, but it works like a charm now....
