I need more room to birth!
    #921209 - 09/30/02 09:22 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

Ok, i got a setup that is like roadkills, where it is a rubbermaid container inside another with a water heater. thing is, i colonized too many jars. I need to turn these 2 containers into 1 big heating room. I have a idea though, but not sure if it'll work.

I will cut a whole in the side of both containers, probably about 5 inches in dia. Then, will use some sort of 5" tube and connect the two, so they're sharing the same air space (in a way). I put the water tank heater in a jar next to the whole in one of the boxes, then... In the box with a heater, set the fan going. In the OTHER container, I will cut a "breathing hole" and cover it with a filter disk. So ... hopefully..

The hot hair generated in the first container will be shared with the second container via the fan going. I will also have a fish tank pump, pumping air to a glass of h2o/h2o2 in each container keeping the moisture level stable, also, each will be covered in damp perlite.

Now, i've read that you can just stick a small (25w?) light bulb in a container and that will also generate heat, while giving off light.

Anyone have any idea's on this? I'm in desperate need and times my enemy :smile:

Also, I was planning on mixing it up between some PF Cakes and maybe some casing, not sure, because my first grow with casing went contam. Anyways, please let me know what you guys think.

Thank you in advance!

Sounds like it could work. Try it and monitor the temperature and humidity. If things go south, tweak the rig. A light bulb would also provide heat, but for it to be the most effective, it would have to be inside the container. Probably not a good idea putting bare, incandescent bulbs and fixtures into high humidity areas.

yeah, i plan on putting the whole thing together tonight. I have a question about what kind of glue to use to stick the stuff together. i'm wondering if i can use good ole fashion Hot Glue, like the kind used for crafts and what not. I don't think it would have anything that might cause any type of contamination. Anyways, was just wondering... thnx.

Hot glue should work fine as long as it will adhere to the surfaces you're trying to bond. I have never worked with hot glue, so I can't help you there, but I will give you one tip. When working with smooth surfaces, if you're having a hard time getting a good bond, try scoring or scratching the surfaces before bonding again.

Peace

Yeah, i'm working with rubbermaid containers so it's pretty smooth and hard to get stuff to stick. but lucky, growing up with my grandparents, my grandma forced me to do some crafts while i was younger, and i kinda figured that out. I plan on scoring with possibly a nail or a razer blade. anyways, i'll get it to stick. My problem is space, i live in the guest house and i have to store in my bedroom, because between the kitchen and living room, not many places to keep out of site.

So i'm planning on having them by the foot of my bed, and possible make a box cover to just go over it and make it look like there is just a big box on the ground :smile: muwahaha, i'm cool like that. anyways... i hope this works.

thnx for replying :smile:
