help a newbie out
« on: June 01, 2007, 06:09:29 PM »

how important is it to have a light fixture directly on my poor man's pod? I have them right near a window...would this provide sufficient lighting?

sunlight will dry out your cake, u can pretty much just have a ceiling light on or somthing of that matter and have them on a table, i mean they dont need an extreme amount of light they just need enough so it knows so grow out of the cake

If the window you have yours at gets indirect sunlight it will work fine.

I never used one ocassional i had a few water droplets fall on it but ive heard it can possibly be benificial it might have on mine but i really diddnt notice any diff, but either way water on the cake is good because it helps with the nutrients. after your first flush look into somthing called a dunk i think their is a post on it on this forum.
