Thanks, I am glad you all like it. :laugh:

It is made of plexi-glass bulk food bins. We have an aquarium pump pumping in o2 through a bubbler stone, another 3/16  hole for air to escape, and an inch of perlite at the bottom for humidity. The humidity is kept at a constant high and the temps are ALMOST always 75*. My BF had a black light he has been holding onto forever, so we decided to put it on top.

It looks like it doesn't take up too much space at all. Where did you get those bulk bins? I see them at grocery stores so maybe I can convince them to let me have some.

Very nice.  Some people would say that you shouldn't have a uv blacklight in there for a few reasons.  Rumor is the can cause mutants and not to mention UV light breaks down the "magic" ingredients.  I would recommend doing a search ...I claim to be no scientist and have no proof!  :wink:

I just read in The Mushroom Cultivator...
"more pinheads are initiated upon exposure to blue and ultra violet light with distinct peaks at 370, 440, and 460 nanometers. Study showed that light stimulation at these wave lenghths for as little as half a milisecond per day caused primordia to form. In contrast red, infra red, and green light having wave lengths greater then 510 nanometers were inefective"

So I think we will be OK.

$12 for the 4 containers, aquarium pump we had already, tubing $2, black light already had, perlite $3. I'd say altogether with little tid bits here and there about $25.

Yup. You know, from the grocery store. The stuff with candy in it and stuff. Or rice, etc.

I suppose you could ask them if they have any extras.
