Whoa man if your stuff is fruiting then you don't need to have lights in there. Maybe a little light if it is true that they use it for direction.

just use your closet light or the light in the room. You don't need extra light like flourescent 40w hanging on top of the terrarium or casing unless you are experienced. good luck and evil people can't grow shrooms because they are happy

^^^^^

What he said. Use a regular ol' light. If it's bright enough to see the shrooms, it's bright enough to grow.

Fan often.

Yea man, 85 is mycelular colonization temp. Your lucky to even get fruits at all. That is the reason for the small shrooms. Use a cool flourescent light bulb. You can buy those at Lowe's or Home Depot.

That is the perfect answer I would go with this if you can't use another form of light

my problem is getting the temp up to 80 for colonization, its at 72.5 right now, but when its time to fruit, i will be in luck.

the frozen bottle idea is a good one. if i have too high a temp for fruiting i will go with that, what the hell else can you do about it
