Which light is better?
    #2425508 - 03/12/04 11:35 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I am growing for the first time, so these questions might seem stupid.
I built a terrerium from 2 styrofoam cooler that I cut and glued together completelly air tight. I plan on growing in a dark closet in my appartment. If I grow in my closet I will use a Blacklight to grow. Is this a good idea? Is it better than natural light? Also, where can I find a cheap ultrasonic humidifier that will be good for my terrarium?

Thanks!
:laugh:

blacklight is bad....i found a thread somewhere that described why, but not sure where it was.
last time i went to Goodwill, they had quite a few ultrasonics.
I reccommend going with a cool-mist, no-wick humidifier though.
The ultrasonics really do put out way too much

Black lights can cause mutations, and do not put out the correct wavelength to induce pinning. There was a post awhile back where a respected member did an experiment will all kinds of lights. Out of all the different types she tried, only the blacklight failed to induce pinning (at least correctly). All other lights performed equally well.

Here is that post, and apparently it is in the FAQ as well.
