Humidity situation in incubator.......
    #651321 - 05/29/02 12:23 PM (22 years, 28 days ago)

I have built myself a incubator that consists of 1 rubbermaid container with 4 BRF jars innoculated w/ B+ strain and one 50 watt aquarium heater summerged in a 1 gallon container of water. I have the ambient temp. at about 79.3-79.5 degrees, the humidity however WAS at about 96% RH untill i figured out the the open container of water produced a lot of that uneeded moisture. Since then I have covered the container as best as possible and the RH has leveled off at about 85%. Does this pose a problem for my jars, or should I not be worrying? Any ideas how I can lower the RH without lowering the ambient temp, because i think it is a little low to begin with. If this does not work out I will be trying the alien tek incubator. I just had to see if this current one could be improved. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

85-90% is a fine rH for colonization. Keep the temp around 82 F.

PF jars colonize just fine at room temp. F your incubator. Waste of time and a hassle. Yes they WILL colonize a LITTLE faster in an incubator, but who wants to deal with all that extra BS just to have their jars finish a day or two sooner? Is this a big race or something?
