flashlight for stealth setup?
    #4608063 - 09/01/05 02:19 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

i have a closet hidden that no one ever uses...my question is, can i use a flashlight for the terrarium light source?  i dont have an electrical outlet in there.  ive heard that the light used has to have a broad spectrum, and some say it doesnt matter.... :rolleyes:

thanx

Iam also trying a stealth setup. I brought a small 4W florescent battery striplight from my local hardware store today which will fit inside the roof of the terrarium and should work fine. From what I have heard any light source will work fine just make sure the wattage is not too bright. I've not tested my 4W light yet but I brought a 9W one recently and it was too bright. Try and get a flourescent light if you can, if not don't worry  :cool:

try to get a low wattage 12v light and run it with a car or deep cycle battery.. then you can recharge it like once a week or so instead of changing batteries every day

Sclerotia grows require no light at all. The ultimate in stealth and low maintenance

the whole thing with the flash light is the same as cubeladds post... batteries are expensive... if you can rig it to a bigger battery(car or deep cycle) you'll be ok.. or get some rechargables

i can certinly understand your need to keep things as self contained as possible however i would recomend using a handheld flouresent, i used these in the construction of a haunted house a few years back they run about $6each at walmart and can be run off of a 6v power suply or run on 4 double a batteries for up to 6 hours use.
