First time fruiting chamber--need some feedback
    #8791647 - 08/18/08 05:51 PM (10 years, 3 months ago)

So Im about a week or two away from transfering my cakes into my fruiting chamber, and I wanted to make sure I didnt overlook anything important.





Im doing PF tek, using RRs shotgun FC, so Im guessing I should probably elevate this setup somehow away from the carpet. This setup is in my closet (which is a walk-in from my bedroom), my impression is that this should still be clean enough as long as everything is 100% colonized.

My other concern is lighting. This is just a cheap 9 watt lamp that I got from a local Walmart; thought maybe for an FC this size that the lamp might not be a sufficient light source.

Any input would be much appreciated.

from my knowledge you need to raise it... Simply place 2 planks of wood under it to raise it a few inches, make sure you have a few holes in the bottom also.

dont worry about the light
it would have actually been better, imo, if you switched the light with some sort of air exchange or humidifier.
light isnt that important as long as they get anywhere from 4-12 hours of indirect light for pinning
dont quote me tho
ive never grown before, just read a lot of shit on this website

Your light Should be in the 6500k range, but as long as its not any hotter than that you should be fine. I would put some sort of plastic under the tub to stop any water from dripping on to the carpet. I have a trash bag under mine but it doesn't ever get wet but you never know. Happy growing and keep us posted.

Set it on a table so it's at least 24" off the floor, and elevate it with blocks so it's at least 2" above the table.  The light will be fine.  You might want to raise the light above the FC slightly so it won't produces heat inside.

If you want to fine-tune the lighting, look for a fluorescent tube that is labeled with a color temperature of 6,500 Kelvin, or one that's labeled 'natural daylight'. Run the light for 12 hours per day for best results.

i bought a 2 pack of indoor fluorescents at wal-mart for like 6 bucks they are 6500k i put them in a old bathroom light that lays flat against my lit of my FC.  I would get that thing up on a table or something because most contams are within a foot off the ground especially with the carpet there housing tons of mold and bacteria.  Also make sure you have holes in the bottom of the FC and elevate it a few inches with some blocks of wood so fresh air can flow up through the perlite and increase humidity once you put it in that is.
