does light really matter that much
    #1177376 - 12/29/02 01:56 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

My fruting chamber is an old aquarium (clear sides) & I use a floresent light as the heater (it keeps it at between 74 & 80) so my casing gets 24 hour light (it is just colonising the surface) is that gonna make a difference?

I have tried aquarium heaters (3) & they all suck fat monkey cock so I'd prefer not to have top buy another one

.........oh yeah also do I need to fan more than once a day? it says in the pf tek once is enough but it seems that quite a few people here do it alot more (3/4 times a day)

I only give mine 2 hours of light a day when they are fruiting 4-5 to initiate primordia formation. They do grow when the light is on but most of the growth is put on during the dark period.

I use styrofoam coolers with a plexiglass window in the top of about 5x3 inches.
The only light they get is the small amount coming from a window in the day (sometimes curtains are closed so they only get about 3 hours of the light a day.
The point is that they do not need alot of light to fruit so just make sure they get plenty of fresh air and drop that temp. I use this tech on p. cubensis
