Lighting and its Importance
    #894012 - 09/19/02 06:17 PM (15 years, 7 days ago)

Ive heard many things. Some say that the room light, while you are fanning, is enough for the cakes. On the FAQ they said a 1 - 2 hours daily. Does lighing initiate pinning? I dont have a cut in my terr lid, can I just open it for an hour? Or should I get soemthing to cover it during the lighing sessions so I dont loose the humidity during that time?

Sorta, to an extent, but still appreciated. So does lighint help initiation of pinning? Is it truly necessary to expose them to that long of lighing?! 12 hours!?!?! Geesh. I have Flouros, 4 feet and a rubbermaid container. How far should the lighting be from the cakes? Thx

well i have rubbermade tubs in my closet and the only light is in the closet ceiling and the height does not seem to matter.With 1-2 hrs of light you just some twister looking shrooms ,but once they pin they will fruit in full dark, the light on for 12 hrs is not explicitly nesisary some people just like pretty shrooms. :grin: maby this helps.

Leaving the top open will also make controling humidity almost impossible .

Slow set epoxy is the best , "I think" , will also help fight against warpage . Plexi has a tendency to warp when exposed to high concentrations of humidity .
I use a ten gal tank (for now) I had to use 4 "c" clamps to control my warpage , that was keeping my humidity down below 85% . I have heard many people mention just using "saran wrap" as a lid on those "rubbermaid" setups .
Good luck  :cool:
May the mushroom godess bless all your endeavors !  :smile:
