terrarium question
    #629998 - 05/14/02 08:06 AM (14 years, 10 months ago)

alright, i've got a little ten gallon tank i'm going to use as a terrarium. i read somewhere that it might be a good idea to cover all the sides so that light only comes in through the top. will this help pinning and over all yields? also, whats a good light cycle?

anybody seen the bridge?

Covering the sides will make the shrooms grow upward instead of all over the place. The shrooms grow towards your light source.
Most people seem to prefer 12 hours light and 12 hours dark but I've seen posts where they are on 24 light with no problems

You might wanna put some duct tape around the bottom (on the outside) where your substrate is. This will prevent it from pinning at the sides and therefore reducing the risk of having unseen aborts that could ruin all your hard work.

I keep my posts like a bikini bottom, long enough to cover the subject... short enough to keep it interesting.
