Light *in* Rubbermaid container?
    #1765577 - 07/31/03 11:37 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

My buddy is doing his first bulk attempt and is now in the "vegetative" stages using straw/horse poo in a 35 gallon rubbermaid container..

His question is, when it's time for fruiting, will he need to put a light (fluorescent) on the lid of the rubbermaid, or will he be better off putting it in some type of mini-greenhouse terrarium?

DO they need DIRECT light? Or just the sense of light?

do a search for terrariums or just read the FAQ about fruiting chambers, lighting, ect.

The above statement has been a figment of my imagination. Niether the statement nor the writer is real, we are both fiction & should not be taken seriously in any way

they only need a sense of light...be careful about putting the light "inside" the container...the bulb may not generate much heat but the ballast sure does...

if you can see the surface of the casing with your bare eyes you should be fine.. indirect light.. a 20w lightbulb.. christmas lights will even do.. just have some.
