ratio of Casing tray size : cakes
    #1561010 - 05/19/03 08:10 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

got a few questions

1. How many hours of light does a cake or casing actually need a day? if someone were to grow in an ice chest, and put a flashlight in it a few hours a day is that good enough?

2. look at these pics, there are 1/2 pint jars in them for scale, how many crumbled BRF cakes should go into them?

i suppose a flashlight would be almost adequate, but do you want to have an almost adequate trip, or an almost adequate growing experience? At walmart you can get a mini flourescent full spectrum bulb that you can leave on for a few hours a day for like 10-20$. Go invest some money and it'll pay off big later. Youcould get a 10 gal aquarium lighthood too for about 40$

a dual 40watt 48 inch FL hood can be bought at hardware express for 15$ plus tax, and 2.50$ each for 40watt unpackaged tubes. I've just recently (5 min ago) installed one in my closet to give the shroomies some light.

the light wont effect the potency of the shrooms at all, i would the the easiest thing would be to leave the lid open and cover with plastic wrap, a tap light would be better that a flash light i would think although i see no reason why that would work, but u can stick a tap light to the top of the lid, and shroomie r gonna grow towards the light, i believe four inces of substrate is the recommended limit, so i would say as many cakes as u can fit jars next to each other in it, then 2-3 more to fill in the gaps

I was wondering if anyone has had problems with the tap lights? I don't know if it's the humidity, but afoaf has some that sometimes work, sometimes don't. They are brand new and some have been ruined (bought a box of 6, so what the hell). I think it's the humidity.
