since its clear you can just shine the light through the side but the shrooms will just grow towards the light.... if you want them to grow upwards then cut a hole in the cover and get a clear piece of plexi-glass or sumthin along those lines and use a window sealant to attach it over the opening.... shine the light through that.... if you want them to grow straight up then u may want to cover the sides in tape as well.

Yes, but it looks very cool when your setup has a little window. I'm sure someone you know has liquid nails or some comparable adhesive. Plain Plexiglass on an opaque container would work fine, though.

okay this is the second time im writing this thanks to the crappy performance of this site lately....

You can try just laying the plexiglass on top but keeping the chamber more or less sealed is preferable so you keep the humidity up. You can try either way and use the one that works best for you.

Secondly this is purely for aesthetics... You dont *have* to do anything to your chamber since its clear on the sides. The shrooms will grow either way since some light is reaching the colonized cakes/casings. They just wont grow straight up like some people prefer. Either way you will still recieve the same amount of shrooms off the cakes/casings and they wont lose any potency or anythign along those lines.

Thirdly if you will be casing directly in this container make sure to tape the sides and bottom of the container up to the surface level of your casing... maybe even a little above that... to prevent light from reaching it... otherwise you WILL have a problem with subsurface shrooms growing and they will be a pain to get out and if you dont they will rot and contaminate your casing.

I hope this succeeds in posting this time...
