Which lightbulbs do you use?
    #1938016 - 09/21/03 03:40 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I used to use small 15watt phillips lightbulbs for small lamps. (They have to connection pins at the bottom.)
They regularly went out cause of the high humidity wrecking them. Now I use a regular lightbulb with a "screw-thing"(sorry, dont know the word) at the bottom. They get to warm, and so shrooms are small.
Anyone got any tips on lighting-teks inside the chamber, which stand humidity?
thanks,
jazz

my foaf uses a blue light on the outside of the setup,but i think outdoor christmas lights would work and maybe optic-fibre lighting would be even better.

any light is good.
Just have to give them any light.
Even a few secs a day.
You dont NEED bulbs...indirect light works great.

yes that will work....avoid placing any type of light fitting inside your terraruim,humidity will corrode it and possibly leave it in a dangerous condition,you might electrocute your self or worse still your shrooms.

Day-light that slips in through a near closed blind. If you can just use day light, then $ave your bux on fancy lights for your MJ growing.

Thanks for the answers, I cant use daylight as Im growing inside a PC Case , and it has to look like it were a proper PC...
I thought my shrooms are growing small cause of the warmth radiating from my light I am (was) using, but it could also be the substrate amount.
My first grow was a mycobag worth of substrate and I used a halogen 15 watts bulb. Now I use slightly less substrate as my pc cant take more. The lamp I use is a normal small bulb for ovens.
What is more likely to affect shoom size the warmth of the bulb (it does get rather warm) or the amount of substrate?
As for now I got a new halogen bulb , which I hope is gonna boost shroom size.
Any thoughts?
