OK so once again I sit here bored. So I am writing this cool fruiting chamber method i used. Not sure if this is in the archives as simple as this but it's nothing amazing. With that said:

Items Needed:
Storage bin
X-Acto knife or similar hobby knife or sodering iron with blade attachment
Night Light
Electrical tape
Silicone Sealant
1/4 wire mesh
wire cutters
Perlite
Extention Chord
flame source (if using knife)

1. Get your bin and knife or sodering iron and electrical tape.
storage bins hobby knife
Use electrical tape to cover any holes in the storage bin. heat knife or iron.

2. Cut a small square hole slightly larger than the night lights head (the part that holds the bulb) near the top on one of the long sides. This will take several heatings using a blade but if you have the iron it's simpler.

3. Squeeze night light through the hole.

4. Apply silicone sealant around the base of the entry on the inside.

5. Let Sealant dry for a day or 2

6. Load about 2 inches of moistened perlite into the bin.

Using the 1/4 inch wire mesh. make a lifter as pictured below.

7. put lifter in the bottom of the bin and put ur casings in when ready.

Please use caution when following this tek. Realize that heated blades will burn ur bare hand. Use a rubber grip or insulated gloves to help you with this. This is pretty self contained all you need really is to fan. You can get stronger lights if you want but becareul not to get anything that puts off too much heat.

a blowdryer can be used to heat the plastic before trying to cut it, saves on your fingers too.

no doubt,
use a dremel if you have one.
if not, grab the old lady's blow dryer.

Do you think it's safe to put a lightbulb in such a humid environment?

well, i wouldn't touch its' base, nor would i splash water on a hot bulb but it should be ok otherwise as long as it remains intact.

yeah that's one of the reasons i recommend using low wattage bulbs and those that give off very little heat.
