2 Quick Questions
    #3171247 - 09/23/04 08:09 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

1. I've posted before that I plan to incubate my jars inside an empty toolbox that is perfectly dark and should be just-right temperature wise. Because the toolbox is relatively small (although it'll fit my 10 jars without a problem) should I be worried about CO2 building up or improper air exchange in any way?

2. I also plan to fruit my double-ended cakes inside a Rubbermaid fruiting chamber that will be in my room. Should I adopt any specific light schedule? Right now it's pretty much lights off during the day (although light can come in through the window so it's not really dark per se), lights on in the late afternoon to study, etc., and lights completely off/completely dark at night. Is that suitable?

1. No.

2. So much debate on how much light... I personally feel having light 12h a day is fine to initiate pinning. I wouldn't worry about it that much. Just as long as there's light half of the day or so.

Thanks for the quick reply. Yeah, there'll definitely be some light half the day, my concern was that it was too much light, not not enough.

Nah don't worry about too much, especially if it's just room lighting.

As long as your light isn't causing to much heat then you shouldn't have a problem. Just remember if it is not right above it they will grow funny, they will always point to the light, even if that means growing sideways. It has no real effect on them other than looks. Just don't be worried if they lean to one side or the other, they are just reaching for the light. You can even move the light around every few days and get them to twist and turn any way you want to.

The only concern you should have is lighting prematurely , this could initiate pinning to soon in the jars , so while in incubation periods keep as dark as possible . A few hours a day is enough to aid pin initiation . Like someone else said there is a lot of debate about this "how much " light is enough . I have noticed most growth in maturing mushies happens in the dark not in the light , the light just tells them which way , and that it is time to make fruit . I try to give a minimum of 6-8 hours a day .

It is possible for Co2 to build up in a small incubator , this wont cause much trouble other than stalling jars in later stages of colonization , if you think that is happening just open box , give a quick wave of air .
Good Luck
