Heating Dilemma!
    #4650287 - 09/12/05 03:02 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

ok, here's the deal.

I have a terrarium that is 17 x 23" and I need to find a suitable heatmat for fruiting (yes you do need one if you're growing through the Winter in the UK!). Unfortunately I can only find ones that are either too small or way too big. The closest match was 16 x 29" but the damn site won't accept Paypal or visa-Debit :frown:

Anyway, rather than having to fork out for two mats/thermostats would a mat that only covers half the terrarium still distribute even heat thought the terrarium?

Any thoughts Will be much appreciates :smile:

Can anyone help me?

Are there any heat mats that will link together perhaps?

Possibly. There's really no way for us to know. You'd have to test that out yourself I would imagine.

What you could do is build a tub-in-tub incubator for colonization. Have one lid for colonizing and one for fruiting. Your colonizing lid would be solid and the fruiting one would have plexiglass on it for light. Just turn the heat down and fruit after all yours jars are done. Of course, this wouldn't work if you wanted to colonize jars and fruit at the same time on seperate grows.

An aquarium heater tit/baine marie setup is easier and better IMHO
