How Much light, and how much air???
    #3895351 - 03/09/05 11:54 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Ok, I looked everywhere for a decent sized box to fit in my closet, and found an old cooler downstairs that is huge(so big we never used it) ... It will make a perfect grow area/box I believe... I already have a big 80degree under aquarium heater that will make a good heat source for it... and will line up 5 smaller trays inside of the cooler with my crop in it.

quesion is- how much air will they need?... would leaving the lid closed at all times except 4 or 5 hours at night be ok?... or should I keep the top lid cracked open a little at all times?

Next question- how much light would they need?... and do you have any recomendations for a cheap light source I could use to put in it?... it would have to be decently small like a small tube, or some white leds or something so I can mount it to the top of the cooler... but how bright does it need to be, and does it need to be on at all times/how many hours a day?

for air exchange, fan 2-4 times a day or more , or if u have a PmP then u use the fishtank bubbler for air exchange u could even still fan even if u have a fishtank bubble

light-anywhere from 3-12 hours a day should be good
id suggest using the 12 hours so that way its similar to a natural environment cuz earth rotates so the mycelium is naturally in the dark for about half a day

oh yea by the way, this species of mushrooms like blue the most, probably because the sky is blue which is another factor towards the natural environment thing
