can I use an egg incubator with a different bulb to grow plants?

Question by Krazy: can I use an egg incubator with a different bulb to grow plants?
I just want to grow herbs like oregano and thyme and such and I have an old egg incubator (outdoors). I am wondering if I changed the bulb to a sun light bulb, if it would work to grow plants?

the bulb is a grow bulb you should be able to purchase it from a hydroplonics store
the same idea is used for tea chest gardens

  1. A couple of things come to mind. Seeds germinate best with heat below them and grow lights need to be within an inch or two of the new seedlings from above and adjusted higher as they grow. If your incubator can accomplish those things, I’d say you have a winner. If not maybe you could use it to grow succulents or something like that.
