Poormans Pod Question.
    #4739310 - 10/01/05 01:10 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Hi, I'm a newb. Just wanted to say that first, so that if anything I say is totally wrong or stupid you might correct me.

So After browsing around and considering the different fruiting chamber types, I decided that the poormans pod seems to be the best suited to my needs.

I'm sure most of you seasoned members are familiar with it, but just incase :

Anyways...

My place gets rather cold at night so I was wondering if it might be possible to put a fish tank heater down in the clay rocks, under the water of course.

Would this provide enough ambient warmth to keep the whole chamber at the proper temprature?

It goes down to 65F or colder at night. As I understand it I need it to be 80-86F for best results.

Any thoughts or feedback on the idea? Seems like it would be a simple adaptation that could give pretty good results.

You want it between 80-84 for incubating and between 70-76 for fruiting.

A Poor Mans Pod is really intended to be used as a fruiting chamber rather than an incubator. Look into making a TiT or simply throw your jars in a cardboard box and put the box on top of your fridge, TV or other appliance that generates heat to keep the temps up.

Could I just stick a heating pad under a box to keep it warm during incubation?

I'm going to test run everything first of course to make sure the temps will stay in the right range.

And I think I may of figured out how to keep the fruiting chamber 70-76 even during very cold nights.

I'm going to have to put a lightbulb inside the container anyway... so I'm thinking this should provide some ambient heat. I'll just leave the light on all night, and off during the day.

hmmmmmmm... Is there such a thing as too much light when growing zoomers??
