Condensation on inside of jars (in incubation)
    #926039 - 10/02/02 09:11 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hi all,
This is my first post. I've looked in the FAQs and done some searches, but haven't been able to find an answer to my exact question.
I'm using a styrofoam cooler and a fish tank water heater in a bottle of water as an incubator. My jars (half pint - PF tek - holes taped) are growing nicely, but i'm getting some condensation forming on the inside walls of my jars. the last few days there have been some pretty large changes in the temperature (outside, which has caused some temperature fluctuation inside my incubator) and i think it has been the cause of the condensation.
So, is this condensation bad? Will it increase the chance of contams? If it is bad, how can i get rid of it?
On a side note, i doubt the condensation has been caused by water evaporating out of the bottle with the heater. From my understanding, that causes condensation on the walls of the incubator, not inside the jars. Also, not that much has evaporated out of the bottle.
Thanks in advance,
Manzarek

p.s. my lids are tight and have been tight since i inoculated.

As long as it's not drops of water rolling around in there, you should be ok.  It's always better to try to keep the temps steady.  :grin:

I keep my jar lids on loose during incubation and also get condensation on the inside of the jar. It has not hurt or slowed my mycelium growth. As long as it's not accumulating in the bottem of the jar, I think you'll be allright.
