Welp Im basically using it because well its convient since I have it available also heh. I can't really help you by saying its great or anything because its far to short to tell with my jars.. Only on day 1 here and Im not checking them for at least 3 days. I will give you an update though on when/if they start to colonize and how fast it took but I expect it to be slow due to my 2 hole method eheh.

Peace sorry if that wasnt much help but good luck man

I used a heating pad. Worked for me. It seems as though most people prefer fish tank heaters, but I think you'll be fine. Just pay attention to your temp.

Heating pads are no good. Sounds like you ran out of water for your heater, or did not have enough to begin with. Heating pads will get too hot and will overheat your substrate; drying it and killing mycellium.

Well concerning the heat pads, I can testify that they work in colonizing (usually) but they also suck bountiful amounts of water away from the precious cakey-wakes.

I would like to hear more of this water heater idea. Could someone please give me a recount of the process?

Ok, the termites in my house are colonizing 5 jars right now or atleast colonized 5 jars in 11 days using a heat pad on top of a rubbermaid case. it worked fine and kept their terrarium around 73 degrees. My termites are great cultivators, use the heat pad worked for them. good luck.
