Color of fruiting chamber

In the PF Tek, does the color of the fruiting chamber matter? I've been told light but not clear is ideal.

imho, it shouldn't make much difference if any. i use (mostly) clear rubbermaid upside-down.

it really doesn't matter. with that said, the color DOES have an effect. the lighter the color (not necesarily more translucent) the more light being refelected back onto the cakes. plenty of people use clear containers (you can wrap xmas lights around that) with no problems. if you want relatively even pinning and uniform upwards growth (light is most certainly not the only factor governing this) then a darker color coupled with the light shining directly from above is a good idea. overall it really makes no difference. container color is most important in casings to prevent pinning on the sides/bottom.
