light and air flow
    #387737 - 09/07/01 09:42 AM (15 years, 3 months ago)

hey everyone. i am a new grower, p. cubensis, and so far all is going well. i have two questions as i am now passing the cakes into my terrarium for the final stages.

first, about lighting, i am giving the terrarium natural light through a window all day, then in darkness once the sun goes down. the cooler i am using is not clear plastic though, and so the cakes dont get direct lighting per se. should i augment this with a light bulb for a few hours at night?

also, with respect to humidity and air flow inside the terrarium, i am using an ultra sonic humidifier and it seems like it is barely blowing air into the terrarium. the temperature has normailzed at 75-78 degrees F and the humidity is just below 90 percent. the coke bottles i have hooked up to it are not fogged up at all. is this right or wrong?

many thanks and peace be wit cha!!

they dont necessarily need direct light..i wouldnt try lighting them at night since you have a natural sort of thing going..if you want to give it extra light i would suggest doing it while the sun is up to keep the mycelia used to the same lighting cycle..as far as your humidity..if your hygrometer is right and it is indeed that high..then you should be fine..probably have to go through some trial and error on that..ive never used anything but perlite..it works great.

The light that fueled our fire then has burned a hole between us so
