Internal Lighting/Humidity
    #716529 - 07/01/02 08:31 PM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I am wanting to have a terrium that is in a regular blue rubbermaid tub (inconspicious) but put a small 15 watt bulb inside and run it for a couple minutes a day. Will this be effective? Will this work well for fruiting, will the direct light hurt my cakes? Secondly will damp perlite keep the humidity fine in my terrium, or will I still have to spray or something, or will this setup keep a very self sustaining habitat for my mushrooms?

Your light may cause unwanted heat. You can cut a hole in the top of your rubbermaid and tape on some clear plastic or saran wrap. Damp perlite will keep your terrarium humid enough but you still need to supply fresh air through fanning or an air pump.
