Quick question for fruiting chamber inst......
    #4626304 - 09/06/05 06:29 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

Ok so im getting ready in like 4 days to put my cakes into the fruiting chamber. Now i'm pretty much sure i know what im doing but every once in a while i read something and i get confused. You guys can help me out... I'm doing it the PF Tek style.

I am basically being told to:
-Put a correct measurement of perlite and water into my fruiting chamber. Which will be a rubbermaid tub (med size) with a lid. And then i place the cakes in side on a sheet of aluminum foil. Place the top back on, set a light above the tub (good height) and leave the light on for 12 hours. Take off the light, leave the chamber somewhere dark and air them out every 2x a day, and them let them grow.

Now im confused because every once in a while i read "dont leave them in the dark" and i also read "mist them" but the instructions im following dont say anything about misting. So whats the deal?

The more air exchange, the better. When I do my perlite, there is no sitting water in my chamber. I just soak it, then strain it, then add some peroxide. Works for me. Just make sure the light dosnt heat the chamber more than 75f. I dont even use a lamp. I just turn on my ceiling light when I wake up (at sunrise) and turn it off at sunset.If there is enough light inside the chamber to read, then your kool.

Yes youll still mist. at least twice a day. 12/12 everyday if you want. Shrooms only need light for 2 things. In nature, light tells the mycelia that it has reached the surface, and that it is time to produce fruits.
You can cut down on lighting once shrooms start to mature, but only then.
Also, shrooms grow towards their light source. More light = straighter, longer shrooms. Less light produces thicker, shorter shrooms.
