Transparent Terrarium is Bad?
    #1569711 - 05/22/03 05:22 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)


Hey, I read somehwere that glass see-through aquariums produce fatasses? I thought you it was only the actual casing container that needed to be non-seethrough.

this bit is true. the terrarium only needs to have some light enter somewhere for a short time, to initiate pinning. my terraria are seethru, cos i like the way they look, but i recommend plastic instead of glass, for many reasons.

I believe that your casing needs to only allow light in the way you would like the shrooms to grow. So say that you are using a clear tupperware for a casing you wuold want to put black tap around the sides of the container. Im new though so maybe somebody else might have more info.

Thanks shirl, but what are the many reasons you'd recommend plastic instead of glass?

I think aquarium's would look leeter, plus they can hold lights, have lids, holes for air pump, and all that good stuff :-D

plastic tubs - lighter, cheaper, easier to make holes in, don't crack.

fatasses are from a very high water content, and has nothing to do with light whatsoever. as long as your container is not see through, then whereever light is comin into ur terrarium the strongest is where your shrooms will grow towards.

Hey shirl what do u think about Aquariums?? My buddys got a 100 gallon one and he wants to test it out.. U think he would have to cover the sides with garbage bags or somthin to keep most of hte light out. Or would it be fine??

This is the first iv heard of too muc light.

magic rah, mr. rogers has a completely see thru rubbermaid with a see thru casing inside of it... it gets light all the time (indirect). i dont believe that too much light is BAD, because he showed me his shrooms and they look fine thus far. then again, mr. rogers teaches children how to tie shoes for a living and is quite new at this...

thats true, and people also stole his car once... then realized it was his, and returned it nice and clean with a note "sorry, didnt know it was yours". read that a while ago.

correction from above.... a clear rubbermaid container hasnt caused me problems...

BUT A CLEAR FUCKING CASING CONTAINER HAS!!! dont follow the "shroom wizard's tek". i wouldnt recommend it for the fruiting section....
