sweet moe.For cheap plastic sheeting,you can use painters plastic drop clothes.they come in a variety of sizes and you can get them clear,to near clear,to solid white and black.you are gonna use an air purifier right?my friend had a closet similar to what your talking about,but on a smaller scale dividing the closet in half and using the bottom half for his fun guys.his main problem with using the door to regulate temp. and humidity was pests(mostly flys,nats,and ants).they did't contaminate anything but really pissed him off when he would be working or picking in there trying to be as sterile as possible and a fuckin nat flies by and lands on a cake!fly paper is always a good thing to have.

Moe, a few things if you're going to go ahead and setup a miniature room for this. I'd use and cool-mist humidifier and a humidistat if I were you, you don't want it getting too humid. I'm actually gonna post a tek on modifying a cool mist humidifier with a float valve assembly designed for swamp coolers. You may be able to just limit the size of the holes or run a timer to adjust humidity. Humidistats are a great addition to any grow room though since they monitor humidity and adjust it accordingly. Also if you thought you had issues keeping a freaking aquarium humid you're going to go absolutely batty attempting a whole closet =). Keep up the good work Moe, its nice to know the shroomery has an upstanding neegro like yourself =P

Oh yeah, one last thing, ANYTHING, and I repeat ANYTHING thats running in a high humidity environment thats electrical must be fitted with outdoor rated electrical plugs. If it is not it could very easily cause a short. They sell extension cords that are specifically designed for wet areas that have insulation to prevent shorting(unless like dropped in a pool)

Hi Moe,
Look in a hardware store for rolls of plastic. A guy I know has almost the same setup....He paid $30 for a roll of thick plastic. I think it was something like 8' by 1000' ??? All I know is that it was HUGE and a heavy gauage plastic. IF you're REALLY interested I can find out more of the specifics for ya:-)

i saw a cartoon where this guy did that-
all he used was some thick plastic- lined the closet and used a couple o' humidifiers
worked like a charm
the floor collected alot of condensation, but other than that np
once, he used perlite and saw tons of muck growin on it (even whilst using peroxide
pretty easy to control the environment too

Does a blacklight help shrooms grow?

I thought black lights were not nearly as preferable as just a cool fluroscent, someone once told me they UV rays adversely affect the shrooms in a bad manner, lower potency, or growth, they said that is why natural shrooms are not as potent.

I do not know about this, I also heard substrate matters alot, I think this is true but I am not sure.

Natural mushrooms can be every bit as potent and more so than cultivated. As for the UV light, Stamets quotes a thesis in The Mushroom Cultivator about the photosensitivity of Psylocybe cubensis. The study confirms that "more pinheads are initiated upon exposure to blue and ultra-violet light with distinct peaks at 370, 440, and 460 nanometers. Badham showed that light stimulation at these wavelengths for as little as half a millisecond per day caused primordia to form." I am not sure what wavelengths black lights put out, but it suggests that one at least use flourescents. Keep in mind that glass filters out over 90% of all uv light, so direct exposure might be necessary to reap these benefits. There are lights sold for reptiles that closely mimic the UVA and UVB spectrums of natural sunlight, but they tend to be prohibitively expensive unless you already have them for your reptiles. I already have them for my reptiles. :wink:

Was thinking about something similar, except instead of a whole room, just a set of wire/metal shelving with basically a big dropcloth draped over it, and a humidifier.

Moe: i would think in an environment that large, you'll have some settling out of the air. I think circulation would be key there. Put in place a simple fan to kick around the various gasses and humidity, a la some of the designs in TMC.
