help with fruiting?
    #6162968 - 10/12/06 07:05 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hi this is my first grow and i am using the PF Tek by the book until the fruiting chamber. My chamber is going to be a cooler or a cooler sized rubber maid tub hidden in my closet covered up. I am planing on using a layer of perlite and water and fan a couple times a day(should i mist?). I have heard that heat a couple days after pinning will speed up matuing is this true? and will a heating pad underneath work? My big concern is light i was thinking about using a blue led light hooked to a 9V battery on for most of the day. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

You don't need to heat your FC unless you live in an igloo. Perlite will be fine for humidity. Don't worry about misting unless you are using casings. Then you will want to mist the casings themselves. Any light will work. In mushroom cultivation when talking about a blue light what is actually being referred to is the blue spectrum of light, not the color blue. In other words using a blue light will not help things. On the other hand using that light should not be a concern either.

The light just gives them an idea of which way to grow,
a large tub is great, i use them myself.
