lighting between full colonization/fruiting chamber
    #18391440 - 06/09/13 09:43 AM (1 year, 4 months ago)

During the time 5-7 time period after full colonization where you are waiting for the mycelium to continue to grow throughout a brf cake should you do a 4-12 hour light cycle at 6500k?

all stages of colonization and fruiting benefit from the 12 on 12 off light cycle.

Light has been proven beneficial during all stages of mycellium growth. Mushrooms like mammals have a circadian rhythm.

You want ambient/indirect light(on a 12/12 schedule preferably) for colonization and consolidation.

You want direct/intense 6500K light on a 12/12 schedule for fruiting.

Correct.  If you introduce the very bright lights right after full colonization, you could have invitro fruits by birthing time.  Since they often abort, it's best to just use the regular ambient room lighting until after the cakes are removed from the jars.

thanks, thats what i was asking. They really aren't receiving much light right now.  In closet and anytime i check their progress i have lights off and blinds closed.  Think I'm going to leave them in the darkness for this grow per the original PF Tek and if I have stalling or slow growth next time i'll add the light.
