Questions about fruiting chamber.
    #3242381 - 10/11/04 11:45 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

I've got the Poor Man's Pod setup with lava rock in the bottom. I thought I read somewhere in the forums about adding a little hydrogen peroxide to the water in the bottom of the chamber to keep bacteria and the such out. Did I read correctly? Does this pose any threat to the growth of the mushrooms?
Also, I want to add a lamp to the inside if the chamber to boost the temp a few degrees. All I have on hand is a black light. Does the black light pose any threat to the growth of the mushrooms? Can the light stay on 24hrs a day or do the mushrooms need a cycle of light and dark? Thanks.

Yes you read correctly. Adding h2o2 will help keep out contams.

Black lights are not proper for what we need. Try to get ahold of another bulb. Wal-Mart has closet lights for like 7$. They work perfect.

Also, dont put it inside. Humidity + Electricity = ZZZZZZZZZZAP

Ahh, yes. Thanks. What about the amount of time that the mushrooms can stay in the light?
