Grow room questions about colour
    #4428182 - 07/20/05 02:12 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Hey, just a quick question for you guys on here. I am finally fruiting my first mushrooms since moving and I need advice on the colour of the room. I have read in that using light coloured containers is detrimenal to your grow because it reflects light and causes your shrooms to grow in all directions. Currently the closet i am using is white, should I paint it a darker colour? or will I be alright? My old grow room was a darker color so it was never an issue, so I am not too sure what to do here. Thanks in advance for the advice!!

Transparent containers let light through and can cause shrooms to grow on the sides and bottom of containers, these are hard to pick and can start to rot. I have never heard any discussions about problems of colours reflecting light. I don't think you have anything to worry about.

Reflecting light could be a concern sometime, but I've used an all white closet with no problems. You need to make sure theres plastic on the walls though right? Just use a tarp..

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)

I say (if you are renting) a nice hounds tooth check in purple and yellow, and Jimmy Hendrix posters on the ceiling with a disco mirror ball. maybe some yellow throw pillows. Ya might try playing Saterday Night Fever records really loud and ware a Harry Potter wizard hat covered with tinfoil around town. I don't think it would hurt! (the mushrooms) Now THAT would show class.
But... paint costs money! Leave it white. It does not matter. The container sides matter, like they said, but even if the mushrooms grow out the side, at least they are growing! Refine detail later after restarting the loop for the next grow.
