Questions about terrariums
    #1534800 - 05/09/03 03:47 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

would it be better to have one with clear sides? or would one with opaque sides be ok as long as the top was open to light?

It is best to have one without clear sides, but some way for light to enter through the top. The shrooms will grow towards the light, so this will cause them to grow upward. Clear sides are not that big a deal, though.

i thought it was better to use those clear ones with white lids?? those seem to be the overall popular tub for the job... i like it cause enough light gets in that i only open for fanning and dont need any supplemental lights.... mushrooms grow up through i do get the occaisonal swirly shroom doesnt affect yields/potency...

A more ideal tub would be one that is not clear on the sides, but has a lid that lets light through, either by being clear, having a window cut in it, or just by stringing X-Mas lights on the lid.

I think store know that the clear tubs are not ideal for growing, so they make them cheaper and then charge six dollars more for the opaque tubs with clear lids.
