Enough light?
    #1990553 - 10/08/03 05:55 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hey all,

Yesterday I took 6 fruiting trays and put them in 2 rubbermaid containers. This is my first attempt casing btw. So everything is good (80-90% humid, 75deg), and there are small bits of mycelium showing through on top. The light source I'am using is a 16inch flouresent tube layed horizontally on the ground by the sides of the 2 boxes. I'm just wondering if this is enough light. It does light up the fruiting containers, but its not very bright inside, just a dim glow reflecting off the white of the tops from inside. Should I use an additional lamp or not worry?
. Also, when should I expect to see the little pin heads popping up? Thanks for the help.
