I watched a video by BHB..they dont incubate corn eggs, they have them in tubs at room temp, not sure on the room temp mind you lol!, they reckon corn eggs are quite hardy..a heat mat should heat a polybox no problem

ive seen a mate hatch them at room temp,i think as long as you put them in vermiculite in a tub with holes in the lid and keep them at 20c they should be ok,but im no snake expert but i do hatch tortoise
