An hour or two a day will be fine.

Think about the sun man. If you can just leave em by a window they will be cool. I would give more than 2 hours a day. Go for like 8. The shrooms need the light to tell em where to grow, but grow more in the dark hours. Good luck.

I believe eight hours is way overkill. An hour or two a day is all that's needed. I read that just a few seconds a day of the right spectrum is all thats needed for the shrooms to get their directions. I used to leave the light on for anywhere between 6-12 hours a day. I found that once I cut back the light to an hour or two, the shrooms seemed to grow faster. Maybe my imagination, but I rather think not.

I think there has been an argument on this topic before. For instance, it is said shrooms grow better in the dark. SO 2 hours a day will yeild bigger shrooms. I reccomend lots of light until they pin - 8 to ten hours. After that, I say cut back to 2 - 4 hours a day.

Actually, the mushrooms only need the light to know when to begin pinning.  Gravity tells them where to grow.... :smile:

Well if you always wait for Anno's answers you`ll never learn anything.
Anno knows alot yes, but so do many of us here.
We don`t answer questions for nothing.
But I can understand your concern when users with absolutely no experience post misinformation.

I would go with 1-4 hours of light and then all the rest darkness.
I only give these times because I`ve experienced faster mushroom growth in darkness than in light.
They only need a bit of light for directional growth.
Other than that it`s not necessary to pump them with light.

LOL...

Well, I personally let my setup get natural light, so it gets light by day, and no light in the night.

Now, many people have tried it, and only a couple of hours ( couple = a few hours... 2, 3, 4... ) seem to be enough, both for pinning, as also later for the direction of growth.
A longer light exposure doesn?t seem to hurt though.

So, to sum it up, use natural light where possible, and otherwise a fluorescent light for a couple of hours a day.

I didn`t intend to take anything away from Anno, we all know you`re a great grower borther Anno.
But as you say, even the shroomery faq has most answers needed.
