Lighting through bin?
    #1709666 - 07/12/03 09:44 PM (14 years, 11 months ago)

I read that blue light is a good source of light for mushrooms. In another post I also read that you can use a blue bin (I'm using a simple blue rubbermaid)so that light coming from outside the bin turns blue as it comes inside of the bin.Is this true? and if it is would it be an efficient ammount of light for the entire grow to put a light bulb on top of the lid on the outside of the container and use that as your light source?
Thanks any information will be helpful.

Like Anno pointed out in a previous post... if you use a normal light bulb to light your terrarium, if you pass that light through a blue filter (such as a blue terr lid) all you do is take the blue light that is already coming from your light bulb and filter out all but the blue. In other words, you cannot _create_ blue light from white light by running it through a filter. You have to get a bulb that emits a certain wavelength of light to begin with.

All of my posts are for discussion purposes only. All posts concerning cultivation of mushrooms refer to legal gourmet mushrooms only. Yes, I support monkey-human relationships.
