Heat for what? What temps is your house at?

70's is perfect for fruiting. And as long as you have just a section of your terrarium that is translucent, you don't need any lights. Ambient light from your room (lamps, indirect sun, etc.) will be plenty. About the fan, all you need to do is fan manually at least 3 times a day.

Shrooms don't rely on light to grow. They just need it so know which way to grow, so yes if your terrarium lid is transparent, you don't need a lamp. Also if you don't think your house is warm enough and you are using perlite humidification, then try a fish tank heater in the water. Just make sure that its completely submerged.

You can cut a section out of the lid and replace with seran wrap, duck taped into place. If you do decide to use a light inside the terrarium, be sure that it is an extremely low wattage light because you don't want to create unwanted heat (I've heard of small L.E.D. lights and christmas lights being used.)

Dont use a stupid freaking blacklight, go to pf's site and read about why blacklights suck, but to put it in short, blacklights cause albinism in the shrooms, and they are not very potent, and if you make a spore syringe with albino spores, they wont colinize very well, i think thats what i read there, go check it out yourself you dont need heat anyways

I didn't say to use a black light. I know, I know, you didn't address it to me.
