>terranium
It?s terrarium.

>how tall does it have to be?
At least 8 inches.

>do u put a lid on the terranium?
Yes.

>in the pik it shows a plastic bag??
Lid or a plastic cover serve the same purpose, covering the chamber in order to create a moist environment.

> if im using lights for lighting how amny hours a day do i use and in what stages?
After you put the cakes in the fruiting chamber, a few hours a day, fluorescent white lights. They don't need much light, if you can read a paper under the light, it's plenty.
