Is this enough light?

Question

I want to use my GH for ztub fruiting right now, since I already have more active Z-Tubs than I ever have, and need to utilize the space.

So I've run this LED light rope around it....

You can see my circulation fan at the bottom shelf....

Do you think I need to improve the lighting? This winter / spring I'll be legitimately using this as an automated GH, so I guess the sooner I get it dialed in the better...

What happens if there is too much light?

Not sure. Never done that. But I would bet that the only best trick is to give them a natural rhythm.

Do you mean intensity or rhythm?

Then the shrooms get zero to no flushes and if you are lucky one shroom will grow out of it and it will look just like a dick. I seen someone here grow that one dick shroom. I think he used too much light that's why it happened. I'm sure if you search dick and LOL together in the search bar you will find the post I'm talking about.

 

LOL at your fruiting chamber by the way. To keep a electric appliance like that in a chamber that should be or even might be at 100% humidity takes heavy retardation. All depends how severe the level of retardation you suffer from but from what I can see I must recommend that a guy like yourself to stay away from drugs altogether.

I've never used lights. Ambient light from my window works fine. I just rotate the tubs every couple of days. Those lights are probably just fine.

      Hi y'all, I'm hoping to get a grow on in the near future, and am rounding up the necessary supplies. I was going to get some of these 90mm synthetic filter discs from Fungi Perfecti which I have experience using years previously: http://www.fungi.com/product-detail/product/90-mm-synthetic-filter-discs-set-of-100.html I am trying to track down the appropriate jars (with a 90mm diameter opening) and am having trouble doing so, here in the UK at least. My best bet (from past experience) seems to be wide-mouth Ball or Kilner jars, but here in the UK I've not been able to track down any jars with the right sized opening. I've found some jars with a 86 or 87mm diameter opening, I'm wondering if anyone knows from experience of working with these filter discs whether they will stretch or compress to fit these dimensions? Does anyone know of any models of jars that will work well with these filter discs? Any input appreciated! Many thanks
