Need Concealed Terranium - Please Help!
    #4603761 - 08/31/05 03:09 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

Iam desperately looking for an fruiting terrarium tek that will give no hint or interest as to what is inside the terrarium.

Iam using a large(ish) empty lockable toolbox for my terrarium base with a nightlight concealed inside, however I need to find a wire-free method of heating. I could just turn my room heater to a warm temperature, however this would probably give variable temperature changes throughout the day and as I would like to place it in my bedroom I don't want to have to sleep in my own giant terrarium!

Any ideas or links would be very much appreciated! Thanks.

If you are that intersted in stealth have you considered sclerotia

You could use a heat pad with thermostat.
www.sporeworks.com sell them, needs wires but they dont go into the box

As far as wireless, thats gonna be hard because even if your temps are cool what about lighting? Maby get some small ext. cords and lay them under a rug. And as far as the terrarium you would probably just have to hide it. When my girls mom comes and stays when she is in town i move my opperation to the closet in my room. Its a tight fit but it works. Ill edit as i get more ideas for you. Give me an idea of what the room looks like (ex how big/how many closets) and how much you could get away with showing (ex cords, a tub?)

Lighting shouldn't be a problem as I'll just use one that's battery operated (is 8 Watt OK for a 10" high container?). It'll be a pain having to change the batteries all the time but it shouldn't be too much of a problem. I had thought about placing a heatpad with extension cords under my carpet, but would it heat up the inside of the terrarium enough once it has penetrated the carpet and the toolbox, which is made of fairly tough plastic.

My room has one wardrobe-closet, but this us where it was discovered last time so Iam wary of placing it there again. so long as there are no visible wires coming from or leading to the box there shouldn't be an issue with where it is placed.

p.s Done some brief searches on thermostats and whereas I though it was just a name for a small heater it appears that they cool the area if the temperature isn't right which would be very useful.

From what ive read the ligting could be any light in general but they said its better to use soft white floresent lighting. I personnaly use a grow lamp I have from a hydro grow (75watts). So i dont know by personal experience.

Erm... I really hope you're not trying to grow in such a risky environment. Like why are you having to hide it in the first place?

www.dictionary.com very helpful if you don't know the meaning of words. a thermostat is not a heating or cooling device. it is a controll switch that tells your heating or cooling device when to turn on of off in relation to the temperature you set it at.

I understand.

However regarding the heat mats, From what I've read they don't heat up the environment much, but rather heat up objects within that environment, so how can the thermostat get an accurate reading of the general temperature to determine when to switch on/off?

It depends on where the thurmometer of the thermostat is located. if the mat is in direct contact with jars, and the thermometer is above them in the air, they might cook. I think there was someone who had a thurmometer in a jar of water that was placed in with his pf jars. this was just for his observation though and i don't believe connected to a thermostat. an idea though. some also put the mat under a damp layer of perlite. the water seems to help the air and perlite stay about the same temp.

also true. it really isn't mandatory, just faster if done right.

It seems that the heating-pad under the carpet method is the best method for concealment so I'm gonna go with it. As for the thermostat I need one that I can place inside the terrarium without wires trailing out. So ideally it would seem that I need a heat matt with some sort of wireless transmission device attached. If anyone know where I can buy this sort of setup I will be a happy man!

p.s I don't have a credit card so I can only use UK debit or Paypal for websites if anyone knows of any.
