Questions about Light
    #1099154 - 11/30/02 09:11 PM (14 years, 6 days ago)

Hi!

I'm a newbie, so please pardon the mistakes and spelling errors.

I have tried using the PF tek using coke bottles as terrariums with limited success. I decided that even if I was pulling it off well, I probably wouldn't get the yield that I want. So I decided to try Hip's Bulk Tek

First of all, this mentions using rice/vermiculite. I am assuming that water should also be used with this tek, right? It wasn't specifically mentioned.
The tek mentions putting everything into a garbage bag to seal out light. I thought that shrooms were phototropic, and needed light to know which way to grow. Can they grow without light?
Also, using the PF Tek with coke bottle terrariums, if you need light, how much do you need? Is sitting them by a window and leaving the overhead light on enough?

Thanks!

Read Hip's tek again. The substrate is the same as PF's.

??Doesn't the PF tek (every tek) recommend keeping inocculated substrate in the dark until fully colonized?? Only once fully colonized are cakes allowed more gas exchange, exposed to light, and moved to fruiting temps. and RH. See link:

The same link should answer your questions about lighting.

Thanks for participating,

If you need a cheap terrarium here is what you do.

Get a small garbage can and put in a layer of wet, sterilized perlite in it. Then put some kind of cover on that to hold your cakes. Mist and fan daily.

Thank you for the replies.

So when the oven bags have colonized, do I need to transport the contents to a terrarium somehow? I don't understand what the next step is.

Thanks!
