What is your water level, reaching half of the jars ?

Peace,

no ok this is the incubator. My substrate jars are 1/2 pint. My incubator is a regular rubbermaid tub. On the bottom of the rubbermaid tub i have 6 1 pint jars almost filled to the lid. On top of those 6 jars i have a piece of cardboard wrapped in plastic that acts as a table. then i placed 12 jars on there then another piece of cardboard and another 12 sitting on that. there is water forming on the jars but not going into the substrate is this ok? and of course there is an aquarium heater on the bottom.

Yeah this sounds ok.

You could also get a smaller container and put the jars in that.
Then drill a few holes in the sides of the container and put the top on it.
Unless you have alot of jars...it will float though...lolz

This is one of my incubators......basically an Alien style incubator!


I just designed a new Incubator
I'll be posting pictures of it this week sometime.

i just re did mine too road-ill post pics too

no batteries right now-

here is what i have done though-
i have a HUGE,(i mean HUGE) rubber tub-
i put unside down jars in the bottom spaced out(the tall skinny wide mouth)

then i added water right to the top of the jars-then i put one of my oven racks from my oven on the jars to act as a shelf-(thats gives you an idea of how big my incobater is-i can fit a oven rack in it-with room on all sides )
then i added another large rubbermaid that will fit inside comeptly-it sits on the rack-

i use a 300 watt aq. heater to heat this bad boy-

this was the inner tub dont float-
i can hold 100+ jars now-
only problem my incobater dont go in the clset any more-it has to sit in the middle of my grow room-lol-

thank goodness i have a room for nothing but growing-i wouldnt know how i would explain this big tub to anyone-lol-with cords hanging from it-

i also added a heating pad,but i rarely use it-its under the outer tub-its on a timer-6 hours off then 1 hour on-then 6 off again-over and over and over-

i also have the outer tub elevated on some sheets of ply wood-this keeps it off the ground and lets me sit a chair beside it and use the top of my incobater a sa work table

hope this helps-

i added the inner chamber-i was just sitting my jars on the oven rack-but the humidity was too much-maybe i was paranoid,but i like dry jars-wet ones are slippery and i kept dropping them-
