Hi, I was wondering if duck tape in my terranium would harm my cakes...
My setup was a puchlight ducktaped to the inside of the lid... I had started that yesterday now the light doesnt work I think its because of the humidity. Anyways my friend ducktaped a flashlight to the side of the bin and put tin foil on the inside of the lid. Im wondering if duck tape will introduce comtams or anything else I heard some bad things about petrolium. Also do you think the cakes could live with this much light? Right now its a pretty low powered flashlight but we will be replacing it with a higher powered one today or tomorrow.
Im getting really paranoid about whether this grow is going to work or not.

Thanks for all your help

duct tape is fine inside the terrarium. Mushrooms only need very small amounts of light... many believe the less the better (to an extent). too much light can stunt growth

Duct tape isnt a problem, its the contams that come in with the procedure.

I agree with THATS iT. However, if used wisely, duct tape need not bring contams into the terrarium.

Duct tape comes on a roll, which means that all the tape except for the top layer and the sides is sealed from the air (and thus from nasty spores and bacteria flying around). If you simply unwind and discard the top layer and only use the layers underneath, contam risks are reduced to a minimum.
