Drip Shield?
    #4664521 - 09/15/05 01:05 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hey there, I was wondering your guys opinion on the importance of a drip shield. Ive read it makes sure the cakes dont get hit with water which sounds like a reasonable argument, but in another guide and some posts ive heard of people misting with no drip shield? Whatcha guys think? Also how much light do the shroomies need a day? 24hr or 2-3 hr like one of the guides said? Thx for the help :smile:

I personally dont worry about either that much, just dont go to extremes, pouring water on instead of misting. Mine get the average light a normal room gets, 14 one day, 6 the next, its not weed your growing where it really matters.

Dripshields are a thing of the past. People don't really use them anymore. I directly mist my casings/cakes, or whatever medium i'm growing off of and don't have problems. You don't want large droplets of water falling on your cakes or casings, but usually the lid of the terrarium won't have all that much condensation on it.

For lighting, most people use the 12/12 light cycle. It is the closest thing to natural light. Mushies DO NOT need a lot of light though. Some people use a 1/23 cycle. It is basically personal prefference. Light is used primarily for a pinning trigger and to give the mushies directions. The mushrooms actually need little to no light technically.
