Terrarium Window too small? (Ascii drawing !)
    #4139633 - 05/05/05 10:47 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Hey dudes!

I need your guys' help... is the window on my terrarium top too small?  Here is an ASCII representation of the lid from a top-view...

Legend: 

# = seethru acrylic
_ = lid


/-----------\
|___________|
|___________|
|_#########_|
|_#########_|
|___________|
|___________|
\-----------/

Everything is opaque except the acrylic window.  I keep reading that shrooms don't need light to grow so I didn't think it would be a problem, but now I'm starting to worry.  Even if light can get inside, does "size matter"? :wink:

Thanks again

It should be alright. And yes, "size" always matters, lol.
Good Luck.

If they are cubes they do. The need just a little bit of light (regular incadecent lights work) to know when it is time to start to fruit.

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

i didnt make a window on my pmp. i just put a 20 watt fluro on top of the lid. its a blue tub so the light coming through is blueish and still pretty bright. im a newb and this is my first try with this setup but in theory i think it should work fine.
if you have a small window with light coming through i think that would be plenty fine.

Thanks all!  And tahoe, yes, it's EXACTLY like that.  And, it seems that you've had no problems so far?

PS:  Don't mind that PIECE OF SHIT ascii drawing, I can't figure out how to get it to use courier new.. ah well. :wink:  Tahoe's pic is way better.

PPS:  Tahoe, in addition to the other question,  what is that shit on the left one?  It looks like a container full of shit !

Thanks

they work great, actually the humidity is too high in the. I mist one every few days and fan once a day. That whole things doubles as a casing, there is no tray in there, its just filled with 24 cups of spawn. The window is foggy on the left one and the other is dry becasue i knocked the silicon loose. I cant find something will stick. I sanded the tubs to give the silicon something to stick to but its not working. I just reseal them once every week or 2

it's condensation, and your window should be fine, it doesnt take a hell of a lot of light to do the job

Tahoe, did you try sanding the plexiglass also? Have you tried aquarium sealant?

Top notch all around waterproof sealant, and it dries clear:

yeah, sanded both. Tried the sealant, its 100% silicon. Its just using petroleum products on other petroleum products doesn't work the greatest. Super glue would be cool but then the lid might be too rigid. Its cool like it is because i can remove the plexi and clean all the nooks and crannies

Under his instruction, I taped drumsticks to his head and turned him into a sort of mummy, or perhaps a caterpiller in a cocoon. He remains this way for about three hours, making bizarre noises, pretending to be a new species that must learn to walk and talk and eat, etc. And he communicates with other life forms by way of the antennae on his head. Eventually we jam a tube from a waterbong into it's mouth and figure he's learned all he needs to know.

Diver, do you use Household Goup from the US? In Canada, it contains a carcinogenic solvent, as opposed to the US brand.

Ok, even though this carconegenic Canadian brand is used, should be OK when it's all dry? Thanks again

actualy they make solvents that will help it to seal, PVC cleaner should work,
it'll soften the plastic and allow for a bond

*nods* look in the plumbing section, it usually uses a primer and an adhesive, its used for doing pcv piping.
