Does your fruiting chamber have airflow?

If not, then it could be because it was in a sealed container.

Otherwise, I have no idea.

If the chamber is transparent, then just stick the light outside of it.

U working with cakes or casings?

I would figure out some way to make a window in the chamber to allow light in without having to put a light inside of it.

Thats all I can think of. These Cali Kind bowls are slowing my brain down.

Fluoro's can get pretty hot. Even CFs. I've never seen one too hot to touch, I don't think :confused:

Thats somthing you'll have to visually look for. Are the cakes dehydrated? Bruised?

If they still look healthy, then they are probably ok.

They are fine for now, but they would get hurt if it continued.

That CFL, what size is it? You should have the smallest one you can find in there (the 8, 12 or 15 watt models). If you have to have the light inside (you cant find a clear top, or plexiglass, or cut a hole in the current top to wrap with plastic or something) try getting some rope lights. They put off very little heat too. Still warms up a bit, but any light will do that if you put it inside.
