Right, I was just experimenting. No harm done! It is pretty funny though... I don't think one little 100W, $10.00US, Water heater will heat 20 cubic feet of space that is only wrapped in plastic...

I think I'll use the heater for inncubating and just stick a couple 40W bulbs in there for heat. I only need mid 70's...

just a normal desk lamp.
in my closet is a big box
in the big box is a terrarium and colonizing jars, jars are covered by a towel to stop light getting to them. Inside box temp is 80, inside terrarium temp is 75.

Yes, indeed a very nice post for everybody to read. I'll contribute with a diagram of what i'm using now, i'll take some pics tonight of the real thing, it's damn cheap and it works flawleslly. The temperature is highly adjustable with this system. BTW, i add a bit of bleach (5-7% of the water total volume, also the water only works as a heating medium) to eradicate any contams inside the chamber.
There's also a very good setup sugested by Anno, he gave this url http://translate.google.com/translate_c?u=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.fungifun.org%2Fpf%2Finkubator.htm&langpair=de%7Cen&hl=de&prev=%2Flanguage_tools



Well, here are some pics of my incubation chamber.




Peace,

would it be plausible to put a little tray of wet perlite in one's incubator in order to combat dry heat?

My friend has his jars in wooden cabinet sitting directly on top of the radiator in his room. There is no door on the front so he has a towel draped over the front to help keep the heat in, but keep it from getting to hot in it. The temp ranges between 75-85 degrees. The colonization seems to be coming along very well. Visible growth on the third day!

nobody said this but if this is only for terraiums and jars in boxes. if you have done a bulk run in some tupperware bins i dont think you really need to bother unless it is really cold in your house. internal heating keep these a bit warmer than youd expect. if ambient heat is already ~75 id advise people from supplementing with pads etc.

i bought one of those lakewood thermostate heaters that turn off and on to keep at right temps. i just put it in the corner of my closet and it makes the top shelf 80-84 deg because hot air rises and the bottom in my terr 72-76 deg which turns out perfect i use the top self for colonzing have a light at bottom of shelf (i use a heatless one) and on the floor is my terraium and i keep the jars in the box so no light hits them i tried a heating pad but it sucked, dryed out my cakes and the perlite and i only got like 4 mushies what a pisser the heater way works a lot better

Figured I'd post up some of the techniques I use for heat. First off, for incubation I use a heatpad on low, placed underneath a closed box containing the jars with cloth on the bottom of the box. My heating pad gets pretty hot though. During the winter, if it gets too cold I place my jars inside of a box next to the heater I use in my room... pretty simple, heh. As for my grow chamber, I try and maintain a room temperature around 72 degrees already.... The light i use for my chamber is just a standard 75w bulb placed about 3ft above the chamber, if it seams that the chamber is getting too cold I lower the light a bit. Also, like lana said, I'll use a fish heater placed inside of a jar full of water (which is placed inside the chamber) if my room starts getting too cold in the winter. Psilocyber is right, most newbies don't understand how much the temperature effects your growth. Try and incubate around 80 degrees for good colonization, once in my grow chamber I'll try and keep the temp as cool as possible for the first few days, then raise it to around 75... the cool temperature lets the mycelium know its time to fruit (thats the idea behind cold shocking your cakes in the fridge also). But anyway, temperatures are more important than people make them out to be : )

As newbie I am grateful this thread is here. I just innoculated my jars and I took a thermometer all over the house looking for a warm enough place for incubation. Even with the thermostat set at 72 deg. the warmest place I could find is 68deg.( it's minus 3 outside) except for the furnace room. I'm going to have trouble with humidity. the humidity here averages only 18 to 25 % in the winter

"the humidity here averages only 18 to 25 % in the winter"

You can control humidity inside a terrarium, outside humidity should not be a limiting factor.

:takingnotes: coolio. I have a closet that has a horizontal sort of storage closet overhead. I was concerned about dry air for my first grow, but it may prove useful investing in a sensor based heater that maintains and using the rising heat to incubate. Possibly constructing whole chamber/ (shower curtain tent box) for terrarium to minimize air flow effects.

People don't really use incubators anymore as much. You should go into advanced search and limit your search to like 2-3 years this hobby changes continually.

My house is freezing. I use one room for things related to this hobby, that room has a cheap little space heater from wal-mart. Works out fine my room stays in the 70's no matter how cold my house gets.

Honestly thanks for the confidence boost, i can dedicate space and work away. And you referred to my "shower curtain tent box" as an incubator? I didn't catch that at first and thus my not responding..
i just worry for contamination, especially if i end up moving it to/ having it in my unfinished basement. (which is colder but much more stealthy)
