fruiting chamber
    #1204909 - 01/09/03 05:44 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

i got some 66 QT Sterlite tubs... they're see thru... its just the lids arent.

Do i need to cut a hole in the lid or something to give light? or can i just keep the lights on???

daba

light is really not that important, and the light that is let in through the side'swill be enough.....I think maybe, just maybe that make's for shorter fatter mushies? having light from all sides, but I could just be wrong....

light from all sides isn't a good idea if your going to do a giant bulk casing in that container. as it will cause the sides to fruit which isnt good :/ no cakes should be fine in there though. also casings should be fine but prolly need more overhead light for those.

i put my container upside down so the lid is on the bottom. i place the casings on the lid. this also provides for air exchange out of the bottom. so all i have to do is pump air in and old air flows out. also don't have to reach in to mess with things. remove the "top" and it's all right there.

If youre worried about your light you can do what i do and tape tinfoil on the top of your container so no matter where you put your light it will reflect onto the tinfoil and provide the shrooms with proper lighting so you dont have to worry about them growing sideways :grin:
