1. Use a shotgun terrarium for now.
2. Search the forum, this is one of the most common topics.

The shotgun FC is going to be easier for your first grows and I would recommend using it at first.

They need at least a few hours of light per day and you can get them the light with a simple lightbulb around the 6500K temp.

I'm not a master cultivator or anything but I use a shotgun fc with around 5 inches of perlite and never have problems with humidity..And I usually provide the mushrooms with around 6 hours of light per day.

some one in the forums said perlite over hydrates so i thought a humidifier would give me the right amount of humidity.

Over hydrates? I don't understand. Its pretty simple all you do it moisten the perlite really well in a strainer, let it sit for 30 minutes or until it has quit draining like hell and dump it in the FC...And then you can moisten it with a mist sprayer as needed

i guess its possible that the perlite gives of to much humidity.

I had trouble with a shotgun terrarium cause my ambient humidity was too low, did a bit of searching and found this http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php/Number/11196042#11196042 works perfectly i now have 95-100 humidity and it creates alot of airflow, cheap too. :laugh:

indirect sunlight for 6 hrs a day is good.  or a 6500k flourescent for $4 at walmart is the right light specturm.  Go with the shotgun.  Yet the chamber that galen suggested is quite good also.  Shea did a really good job of it
