How Much Light
    #1058915 - 11/16/02 10:43 PM (15 years, 4 months ago)

Im not refering to the length of time the light needs to stay on. im asking how bright of a light do the mushies require to pin. my friend has his cakes in a rubbermaid container with plexy glass lid and they are in his closet. when he turns on his light(which is about an 80 watt bulb) it doesnt seem to be terribly bright in the bottem of his fruiting chamber. do you think this will suffice or should he use a brighter light, for example a fluorescent light? thanks in advance

They don't need 80 watts, and I have a feeling that it will raise your temps or dry out your cakes/casings. I've heard of people using christmas lights and small L.E.D.s
