What not to do. (pics)

Here's some pictures of why you shold not use a clear casing tray. This tray was wraped with foil, but that did not stop light from going down the sides (like fiber optics). The foil should have been put on the inside of the tray and cased in that.

Or just pick them suckas off the side, then duct tape up the sides. It will be nearly impossible to just "direct" the light.

shrooms wont get damaged if they grow to the side. my rubbermaid is clear too, but then I need to be able to see them growing, I dont care if it grows to the sides, does that matter?

>does that matter?

If you let them fruit on the sides like that, then harvest them, you disturb the mycelium alot more then if they had all fruited on top.  I'm not sure if this is real bad, but it sure makes harvesting alot easier when your not digging them out of the sides/etc.

why not just cut a square hole or round hole or whatever in an opaque rubbermaid container and cover the hole with plexi glass then its just like the natural light. doesnt have to be direct i guess but bright enough... think that would work best? thats what i was going to do. :laugh:

Plus your aborts or anything else you don't pick after diggin up your casing (sic) will likely rot causing a ruined casing in no time!

Yeah I truley hate it when that shit happens!!! But that is part of the learning curve.  I know use Clear Containers, covered with duct tape and painted - It works like a charm. 

Well good luck!!! And enjoy!!

Peace out!  :grin:

Yes it matters because as someone above eluded to, rotting fruit bodies are a great vector for contams.

I had the same prob before and itz not just a consequence of light entering the sides it has to do too with the humidty being more on the sides from the drips of water and such on the sides of the walls running down...This is what MrMushrooms told me, but the rest of the peeps is right, the best thing you can do is get an opaque chamber and cut top out then putting plexi-glass over it...or tape the sides up...either way will work!!
:cool:
