Temperature controlled microscope stage

Dear Netters,

I'm studying cell division and expansion in Arabidopsis roots. One problem
is temperature control of the microscopic stages, as root growth is highly
responsive to temperature changes. I'm therefore going to build a setup
that allows me to control the temperature of the stage of a microscope and
therefore the temperature in petrie-dishes mounted on it, in which my roots
are growing. I'm thinking about a loose temperature controlled waterbath
from which water is circulated through some sort of jacket that encloses
most of the petrie-dish.

Does anyone have experience with a similar setup, ideas that could help me?
Any comments are greatly appreciated.
