cheapest method of incubation
    #960979 - 10/14/02 10:34 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Just wondering, what is the cheapest way to make an incubator? I know I could simply get some rubbermaids, and an aquarium heater, but they cost about $30 (canadian), and was wondering if there was a cheaper way of doing this.


Thanks,

-fredthetree

Put your jars on top of the fridge or in a warm place or just wrap in some newspaper.

http://www.myco-tek.com/TEKs/Incubation.htm This is pretty cheap, not sure what it would be in canadian but in $US it comes out to about $15. If this is not to your liking, do like ^ said, put them in a warm place. I've heard the hot water heater is a good place.

i JUST put together an incubation/growing set up. I'm using an aquarium air pump (15.00), aquarium water heater (19.99), and digital thermometer (7 or 8.00) set up. Easiest and cheapest way to do it is to find some container, preferably plastic or styrofoam, and buy an aquarium heater. PJ's pet stores sell a cheap 50 watt heater for 19.99 (canadian) on sale. It'll do the humidifying and heating for you... but it's best to fork over the 25 some odd bucks for the heater... definitely worth it especially when growing time comes and humidity is a factor. You need an accurate air temp. thermometer too... it's only about 8 bucks at PJ's. Trust me, i didn't want to pay the cash either, but it's worth it in the long run, now i dont have to worry about air exchange, humidity, or heating. All i have to do is keep the water level in the heated resevoir up.

An incubator is unnecessary!!! As mentioned above, above the fridge in a cupboard or a shelf above your water heater. These places provide near perfect incubating temps.

Good Luck  :cool:
