The Day Dropper! "light question" PICTURE
    #1693982 - 07/07/03 08:05 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)



What you see here is a window blacked out with trash bags. Then there was a hole cut in the bags where the day dropper was then placed. The day dropper {as i call it} is a tube, basicly. It is a trash bag with the bottom cut out with clothes hangers bent and taped in it to keep it open. This was done so the terrarium could be placed directly under the funnel of droppin day light, so the shrooms grow straight up. The only problem is the day light is kinda weak. When the lights are off and the light is coming through its sufficent enough to read a book under and wide/long enough to cover the terrarium, thats about the only way I know to describe it. Question is, is this gonna be enough light and how many hrs a day should the 7 cakes {GT and South AFR} get. First timer! Thanks

Are you serious?!?!? You converted your window to produce light for a terrarium? But a 4 dollar floro at the store. People are going to wonder why you have trash bags over your window. Hell I dont even use a light and My shrooms grow just fine

you should have your cakes in total darkness until fully colonized
then you need light to get them to pin

Just let them get light all day. I assume the sunlight will generate heat so watch the temps. After you try cakes you might want to start using bulk substrates
