Heat?
    #649876 - 05/28/02 05:50 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

I have a good size rubbermaid container in my room, inside it i have a heating blanket as a second layer, then i have a smaller rubbermaid container that holds 8 jars. The container stays at about 80-84. The question is "Is this ok for a setup for the time being" I know the whole thing about the water heater and shit. That will come soon. Its that money issue. For all the supplys and shit i had to work over. With school and work cant afford anything else. Another question does it need water in there for humidity?

Thanks

I suppose it's an ok set-up, be careful about heat build and fires.
No, don't put any water in there, you have the heater on the inside, what if the water were to spill?
Put your jars in upside down, and be sure not just to mention the air temperature, but the temperature of the medium that comes into contact with your jars.
Monitor the heat alot, keep in mind that heat build up, and a hot day might actually over heat your incubator...

well, you might burn your house down but it will work, if you are going to use filter disks, add a bowl of perlite to keep the humidity up, but I dont think I could sleep at night with that setup, sorry to piss on your parade,,,,

The heating blanket is not gonna burn my house down. A heating pad would. A pad gets at a higher temp to get past you skin to relax your muscles which requires more heat. Indeed i have left my pad on over night and my bed was like 100 degress but i have left my heating blanket on accidently for a week when i went on vacation still got my house. If i left the pad on that would be diferent but i see where yor coming from.
