another setup Q...
    #1021538 - 11/04/02 05:20 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

I have 3 cakes and a casing all in my terrarium. Perlite used for humidity...humidty is near 100%...fanned a few times a day...you know..all that good stuff. My question is the temp reading is only around 65F (eeek)....and it only goes up around 70 or so whenever the light is on.. (powerful light). Is this low temp going to make that much of a difference or just have them fruit slower? Im kinda running out of power outlets and just wondering if its gonna be a problem.

cool thanks....another question...what happens if you leave the light on..well most of the time instead of the couple hours a day thing? I would imagine it would evaporate alot of the humidity but anything else?

Irregular growth might occur. I would keep to a schedule similar to nature.

Leaving the light on will do nothing beneficial nor detrimental (sp?). Fruit bodies use light for directional purposes, and for directional purposes ALONE.

Just out of curiosity, have you ever left the light on 24 hours a day while fruiting or did you read that somewhere else?

Yeah I have, and yes I read that fruit bodies use light for directional purposes only.

im by far not an expert, but i have a suggestion, what if you increased the amount of perlite you have, and used more water than usual, and put a heating pad under the terrarium. ive heard people say that heating pads dry out your stuff, but maybe you can add enough water to counteract the loss of humidity.

good luck
