to use very little light or too much light?
    #726451 - 07/06/02 02:05 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

My grow chambers right now are clear on the sides with white tops and duct taped half way up the sides. They will be sharing some space with some 450watt grow lamps though.... but will not be getting direct light from this lamp they will be roughly 3 feet away. Anyway... i'm pretty much limited to leaving them in this room..... so should i get completly opaque containers and only give them light when I fan/air them out and maybe put a small window in the top or is sticking with these somewhat clear containers with no window at the top and duct taped on the sides the better idea? The only other way to block out this light will be by hanging up some plastice divider between the 2 areas.

thanks

Just buy a 40 watt bulb and a normal house light, put it on a 12/12 timer and put it 3 feet away that would fix the problem, right?

>You need very little light.

Ralphster i just got my order a few days back thanks!
anyway..... which idea where you referring to? Using complete opaque containers and only giving them light during fanning and air exchange? or using the clear containers i already have made up and using something to space in between like cardboard/fabric/dark plastic? just wanted some clarification....

thanks

the semitranslucent rubbermaids are the prefered ones. taping an opaque material like tin foil to the sides if the containers are in a heavily lighted area should be sufficient.

the theory is that ultraviolet light breaks down the desired indoles in magic mushrooms, and lowers their potency.

in a room like the one you describe, even the blue or green rubbermaids should let in sufficient light for pinset initiation. i have noticed this by accident while growing paddy straw mushrooms, a gormet species with charicteristics that closely paralel cubensis. i did not expect to see pins starting until i had a chance to transfer my straw to a lighted area for pinset initiation, yet pins formed on the lighted side of the containers. there should be no need to play with cutting a window for light if the containers are in the room you describe. hope this helps
