Looking for a different kind of heating method...
    #922986 - 10/01/02 04:46 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Ive been testing out temperatures where I will be incubating my myco-bag which is in a cardboard box in the corner of my closet (darkest possible place). Im only getting about 72-75 F and it says ideally it should be around 80-85 F. I dont want to be running wires into my closet for a heat blanket or anything like that, so I was just wondering if anyone had any idea of where to maybe get a battiered operated heating device or something along those lines? Or should I just give it a go with the not so good temperatures and see what happens? thanks.

if the bag is completely sealed off you can wrap it in a blanket w/o contaminates, but if not, then i would just wrap up the whole box. Good luck on your grow  :laugh:

You could also throw one of those chemical hand warmers (the little bags you shake up) inside the blanket wrapped box.  They don't last all that long but the blanket would trap the heat.  Do some experimenting though  as some of those things put off a lot of heat. :grin:

72-75 is fine for mycelial growth. It may be alittle slower, but not by much. As long as there is no light, it won't start making mushies.
