Light brightness?
    #1295763 - 02/10/03 08:46 AM (15 years, 2 months ago)

I have recently set up a new fruiting chamber, and the size/temp/humidity all seem to be basically perfect. It's made from the classic "two rubbermaid tubs and an aquarium heater" idea. However, I couldn't find a good one with a clear lid... so I drilled a bunch of holes in the lid to admit light, then covered the punctured area with visqueen (sp? sort of like a tarp but clear, used at construction sites) to hold in the humidity.

This seems to be working okay, but the light that reaches the cakes is a very dim blue. Just how bright does it need to be?

they don't need much light at all...unless you want them to grow upwards towards a light source. mine are fine with just a little ambient.

An optimist is never pleasantly surprised.
