inucbation question
    #601965 - 04/08/02 07:25 AM (21 years, 5 months ago)

I am limited on cash, and am currently incubating my jars in the box they came in on a wet towel on a heating pad set to low. the temp is 84-89. I have heard how heating pads may bake your cakes, so I was wondering if I could use my terrarrium to incubate my cakes? Would humidity fuck w/ it?

any info helps

i use a space heater for my incubator, so i am not very familliar with heat pads.
colonizing mycelium itself generates heat i find
i run mine at 27 degrees celcius.
something you could try... is to put the heating pad underneath a rubbermaid container
but then again, i am not familliar with heatpads myself, so i dunno if it has a thermostat that shuts it off after it reaches temp XX or what.
i woudl think running that thing under a towel would waste quite a bit of heat, wouldnt it?
throw a mercury thermometer on the surface of the towel, and see what the surface temp is.

i would think that pad may dry your cakes out :P

Dont listen to the guy who doesnt use cakes or heat pads though

My friend has never tried this, but I don't see why it wouldn't work. Be sure you clean your terrarium after you get done using it to incubate, but before you birth your cakes into it. Also, be sure you run a test for a few heat/cool cycles before you put your jars in any new incubator to ensure that the hot side of the cycle stays within limits (106F is thermal death for cubensis mycelium). My friend leaves her incubator a few degrees cooler (83F) than optimal (86F) because the jars produce a bit of heat on their own.

Just another spore in the wind.
