24 light source?
    #1035124 - 11/08/02 07:00 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Is this discouraged and needs a 12/12 on/off period instead of a 24 on period ???? will this affect pinning and hyphal knot formations?

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

Shrooms are phototropic which means they only use light as a stimulus.

from personal experience i have seen that light is needed as much as darkness, eg the shrooms benefit from light [for pinning and direction] but actually they grow when darkness comes [in nature, at night]

so i dont c any reason why you should run 24 hrs a lamp on them.

The few hours of sunlight coming in the window during the day is enough... But 24 hour lights is fine too... it really doesn't matter. As long as they're getting light. I have noted that sunlight replicating lights do seem to initiate more pins and taller growth. I use grolux.

Yup, pick them up at Lowes for a few bucks. I think I paid about $10 or $15 for a 4 foot bulb.
