final setup ...one problem
    #1357259 - 03/08/03 04:46 AM (13 years, 8 months ago)

ok i got my entire set up ready to go and three in the ter. but i think the temp is to high.. This is caused by the light that i have running for about 12 hours a day.. my question is .. could i possibly reduce the amount of light they are recieving so that the temperature stays cooler more often??

What is the temp? How is it lighted now? if you want more answers and the right answers then you have to be more detailed

get one of those night light bulbs and a cord from the craft section in k-mart or wal mart


they work good + they make little to no heat.

Yes. 12 hours is much more light than is needed. You can get by with less than 1 hour.

Unlike plants, the mushrooms do not need light to produce food. They simply use light as a trigger to pin and as an indicator for which direction to grow. I have read about people using Christmas tree lights (very low wattage) with no problems. I know for fact that a fourty watt reading lamp works just fine.

Yes, you can cold shock in the fridge, or put them in cold water.
