Light Question
    #1879901 - 09/04/03 02:16 AM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Because of where his terrarium is (10gal aquarium inside bottom 3 shelves of a tall dresser) my friend is having trouble bringing light to his casing.
Any ideas in the way of stealth lights..very little space.
How much light does the casing need a day anyways?

Where's the aquarium light? Use that on a timer or use a string of white Chrismas lights. Drill a hole in the back of the dresser for the cord.

Yup yup...use the aquarium light made for the size tank you have. It should be right around the tanks for $15 or so for a cheapy but you might have issues with keeping it sealed well enough to keep it humid inside.

OR a better plan

Buy a prebuilt, compact fluorescent fixture and mount it inside the cabinet. Most dept stores have 12"-24" under-the-cabinet lights that are for lighting your counter top. They work dandy, the bulbs last forever and quiet a few have no electrical skills necessary(have a plug instead of bare wiring). Even if you have to buy an electrical plug and some wire, the skills aren't beyond what a NASA chimp could handle.

nice...he'll go to hardware store first thing in morning...

Another Q though..
Mycellium has covered almost all of surface, cold-shocked for 10 hours, it looks very dry relative to when the casing was first made. The peat moss seems a much lighter brown. How is he supposed to mist and should he? If you say mist where does he pick up that rose-face thingy that wont damage the mycellium or cause overlay...

i have a plastic sprayer, fill it with 50% boiled water and 50% H2O2 and i spray on my casings when i think they r dry.

usually, we think its dry, but its wet enough. when we see the
moisture its usually too much. anyway, one or two mists that contain
H2O2 cant hurt it

imho
