my mushies growing towards the perilite instead of up..

I have light on them but they seem to all be attracted to the perilite and are curving down.. Should I take the perilite out, and just use straight water?

I don't think they could be attracted to perlite. Increase the intensity of the light. Do NOT just use straight water. Still water = contamination!

The light could be reflecting off the white perlite.

yes, the perlite is white, and thus reflects the light. i too have problems with this shite which makes it hard to sleep at night!

from what i've reade geolite/hydroton is a good alternative to perlite which solves this problem. haven't tried it yet though.

try putting a blue filter on your light... maybe that way less light will reflect off the perlite... even tho perlite IS white... worth a try.

dude check it out...
im willing to bet that your terrarium is an opaque color, loose it, get a clear one, takes care o that problem (i know this cause i had it myself).

oh yah, the blue light just makes em grow downward faster, get a clear one THEN a blue light

mushrooms don't need light, except to start pinning, and to know which way is up .
cover the sides of the terrarium, and they grow straight and tall .

true that shrooms just NEED light to know direction of growth, but if the reflection off the perlite is too strong then they'll think that down is up and that can be shitty, take it from me i have first hand exp.
