question about grow chamber
    #1553542 - 05/16/03 09:56 AM (13 years, 11 months ago)

i was planning on using a cooler to grow the tray in, would this be insufficient? does there need to be light for pinning? can the mushrooms be grown in the dark?

thanks.

You technically only need light to initiate pinning, so theoretically you could use a cooler with no clear window on top as long as you exposed them to a bit of light to get them pinning. However, this could result in your mushrooms growing in odd directions since they have no light source to grow towards.

I would recommend picking up a rubbermaid container and a piece of plexi glass at Lowes/Home Depot/Wal Mart for about $10 and cutting a window in the top and attaching a plexi glass window in order to give them some light. It's a cheap and easy terrarium and it works well according to those who have used it.

If you don't mind turning them on and off once a day during fruiting, tap-lights can provide the needed light. AFoaf didn't feel like doing the plexi-glass thing, so he has 2 tap lights mounted under the lid. They are cheap as well.

so light is necessary?
im confused.

also how long does he leave the light on every day? and he does this the whole fruting period?
