attaching tap light to top of terranium.....
    #4674799 - 09/17/05 07:15 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I am growing stealthy, so I am using a NON-SEE THROUGH terranium and will use a tap light to grow the shroomies.

The problem is, attaching it to the ceiling without it falling. Keep in mind, I MUST CHANGE THE BATTERIES AT TIMES. So this will NOT be a permanant spot, so silicon on out, super glue is out, etc etc.  Double sided tape would probably fall off after many hours of 100 percent humidity.

There is a slide on it for attaching it with ONE screw. But A) I will attach it to the top (which is maybe a 1/16th inch thick) and will not be sturdey. B) It just won't be sturdy. :smile:

SO, any suggestions out there?

Velcro? Although, i'm not sure how well it works if it's moist. The screw thing will work fine if you do it correctly.

Yea I tried using a taplight and the batteries ran out within 12 hours. It was crap. You're better off with a $5 timer and a lamp.

Thanks!

I just thought it interesting that both Google and dictionary.com know what "terranium" means.


Also I should pount out, it's not just a Shroomery phenomenon. If you do a search on Google The shroomery comes up the 50th search result.

Lagging behind theomc.com by 13 hits.


Please enjoy your newfound wisdom.

^^ haha.

this actually was a idea i never thought of, the lamp inside the terr. Hmm i think velcro would work as mentioned above, or what you could do it go buy like a little metal basket from a local staples (thin ones for offices penciles and shit), screw it to the top and one side is open.....so you could slide the light in there and it would just chill in there and when u need to change the batteries, pull it out.

get my flow joe?

:shrug: how many AA's does a tap light use... if it uses 8 you could prob use a car battery and a fuse.. but still.. a timer and light would be better... try a flourescent desk lamp.... some ppl around here even use rope light

The tap light uses 2 AA batteries. (And how could I fit a car battery in my...ter...terrr....terrrrr.aaan.....growing chamber.... anyway?)

Anyway, I bought a 4 watt fluorescent bulb at the world of wally today. Gunna hook her to a timer and let her rip.

Any ideas anybody on the light cycle? 12/12 18/6 6/18....this isn't pot so I don't think it matters TOO much, but ya never know.

it doesnt really matter. 12/12 is about natural but i used to give about 4 hours a day. it just depends how much you want the light to be on.

Light has been proven beneficial during all stages of mycellium growth. Mushrooms like mammals have a circadian rhythm.

You want ambient/indirect light(on a 12/12 schedule preferably) for colonization and consolidation.

You want direct/intense 6500K light on a 12/12 schedule for fruiting.
