Opaque grow chamber with transparent lid - can't find one
    #3675378 - 01/25/05 12:52 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Having a hard time finding one. Local wal mart has a bunch of rubbermaid/sterilite bins but they're either completely opaque, or have clear walls with opaque lid. I prefer to have opaque walls and clear lid, and don't want to cut an opaque lid and glue in plexiglass. I want a chamber that I can put in my house that will be nice and inconspicuous and let light in the top. I've googled around and found some models that will work, but none of the places will ship a single unit. Anyone got any tips?

leave the lid off and just put some press n' seal plastic wrap on it.

I'm trying to avoid attention-grabbing setups. "Hey dude, what's that thing with the plastic wrap on the top, why not just a lid?" No one notices a regular container with a lid.

Excerpt from one of my textbooks:
Therefore, between a then and its matching else, there cannot be an if statement without an else. Statements must be distinguished between those that are matched and those that are unmatched, where unmatched statements are else-less ifs and all other statements are matched.
I wonder if that would make more sense if I was tripping when I read it.

Fish tanks are great , and all you do is make a hood of black cloth that fits over for incubations and such . But I am weird and loves my fish tank set up  :wink:
Think LEXAN when and if you ever need lids for any type of chamber , it will out last plexi in high RH enviro 10x over , way worth the extra few bucks IMO .

Your going to have a bunch of containers with a lights above them, possibly with fish-tank tube or hoses going to all of them, stacked in your closet, filled with humidity, with a light image of mushrooms growing on white bricks.... and you are complaining about the syran-wrap looking suspicious???

That is like a cop wearing his gun holster outside his jacket, cuffs hanging out of his back pocket, radio on his shoulder, badge on his wallet chain... saying... "Dude, take off the sun-glasses, they might blow our cover!"

No, I'm going to have this:
http://www.shroomery.org/images/25101/242790835-send_binaryTANK2.jpg
on top of the fridge (so people don't see inside through the top of it.) It'll just look like a big storage bin that we keep up there, and friends and family won't take notice of it. I live in my own place, but I don't want any visitors to know about it unless I specifically want them to. No hoses, no lights, no stacks.

You know your fridge can get very warm up there. I know you'll have a wire comming out the back but how bout you put a light inside? Then you can put it in a corner or somewhere safer and more convenient. Or put it in a closet with a locked door knob.

Yeah, those clear covers are hard to find, most containers are transparent sides and opaque top.
you could mount a small (10 watt) flouro to the top of a completely opaque container, and it would get light from the top and no body would see anything.

There won't be any wires coming out of my FC, I'm not worried about massive flushes and the "perfect" environment that requires no manual labor.  This is my first time growing, and I just want enough for me and a couple friends to trip on, so no need to go with a real great FC.  The one in that pic looked fine to me, I don't mind fanning/misting a few times a day.  Gives me something to do anyway, and since it's my first time I'll be looking at them about 1,000 times a day anyway  :crazy:  I think I may end up going with the opaque chamber and a small light though if I have to, it seems about the best compromise if I can't find what I want.
