A few Terrarium Q's
    #562749 - 02/25/02 05:20 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

My terrarium is a large rubbermaid container with 2.5 inches of water at the bottom and a shelf just over the water. The shelf isnt done yet, so my casings are floating in the water to keep the right temp while colinizing. So here are my Questions:

1. Do mushrooms really prefer blue light, or does it make a difference? If it does make a difference, what difference does it make?

2. Whenever I lift the lid up to open the terrarium, water falls from the lid. When I fruit my casings I'm affraid the water is going to damage them. And because of all the condensation, I'm afraid my humidity is too high. I read that for casings, you want 90-92% humidity. What difference does the humidity make if its too high. also, when I put my shelf in, its going to be covering the majority of the surface area of the water. I'm hopping that will lower the humidity but I dont know if it will.

3. I'm planning on buying an aquarium pump and putting it on a timer for air exchange. Should I put a hole in the terrarium and put a hepa filter over it to allow air to escape? Would that work?

If the water in the bottom is going to create too much humidity, can anyone suggest another good way to heat the terrarium?

theoretically mushrooms grow best on a blue spectrum; mine grow with 30 min of indirect light per day.
humidity shouldnt be too high; i wouldnt worry about that.
adding a air pump would be an idea; the outlet hole is prolly not necessary as your lids prolly not airtight anyway.
your setup will work well; just keep it at 75 degrees while fruiting.

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?
maybe theres a tek out there to explain how to use it!
