So I'm having a little trouble keeping my "room" perfect as far as temp and RH. I was trolling Craigslist and came across an ad for a used baby incubator. I started searching and reading and it sounds absolutely perfect!!! Digital controls for both heat (up to 90) and RH up to 90. I know that the RH is a little low, but PC will find a way to grow! There's nothing else to hook up...no plastic, tyvek, polyfil, blah....blah. Comes with all hoses, hepa filter for air circulation....all the bells and whistles!!! I'm stoked, but figured I would run it by all you in case any of you have tried it before or if you could foresee any problems with using such a device. Cost is only $200. New, they look to cost upwards of 1k for that particular model. Comments pleeeze!!

I think that would definitely make your growing more maintain free. Might want to put the hepa on a timer so that the humidity wouldn't suffer. Other than that it sounds like a great investment are U useing it for incubation or for FC?

its just like the pic above, but not as...well....new. I called and it is available. I drove down a few minutes ago and took a look. It works, it's clean and it's mine!!!( once I go get it with a truck). I'll post a few pics when its up and running. It came with HEPA refills and every hose and such. It is an Isolette C-86 Incubator. Due that I have a Trich problem with ALL of my Rye grain, I will use it for my FC and see what happens. I already have an ad on CL looking for another one!!! Hell, I'll take two!!

Isolette, that's good stuff. Quick Google search shows what it's worth.

thats what I figured, but that would be for a really big grow. i mostly do it for me and my buds....maybe a little trade for smoke here and there. But it'll be there just in case!!!:eusa_danc:eusa_danc
