Fruting Chamber suggestions, changed light to much? *pics
    #3965820 - 03/24/05 07:04 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey everyone, I just posted something on here earlyer what I should do for light I took Hyphae's advice, put the light on the top. So I cut a little hole on top of my incubator and stick the light bulb in there. It's a blue plant bulb 50 watts. Here's a pic of the lamp w/ light bulb:



This is what it is together:



Now there still little opening on the top, which humidity and heat can escape from (I want heat to escape some, cuz that light bulb gets a little hot.

Any Suggestions? Experience only please. (not to be rude)

Thanks,
Cray
:peace:

I'm curious as to why your worried about lighting your incubator.

Erm, since your misting and humidity, I'm guessing that was a typo and your talking about your fruiting chamber. That somvabitch is probably gonna get REALLY hot. See if you can get a thermometer in there and see what the temp is after 10-12 hours of being on. The smallest compact flouro bulb you can find would work beter, I've seen 8, 12 and 15 watters.

So?

I ask again, why are you worried about lighting your INCUBATOR.

Sorry, I'm just not sure whats going on here...

yes, I have a thermometer already in there, I'm gunna check in there in a little bit, to see how it is, yea, I'm gunna go out tomorrow and see if I can get a fricken 5, 10 watt bulb, way to high.

As for why, gotta have light to grow it, I did have the light on the sides, but hypae suggested the top for taller shrooms.

No, no secret, you are right...he should have no light on in the incubator. He apparently doesnt understand me either, I believe I'll stop trying.

I dont like people growing in their parents house without permission anyway..

Just tell them its a science project or something. as far as lighting in a closet or something I would make a plexi glass top and just have a UV bulb or something. Hang it from the ceiling so its not too hot.
