UV Light BOOSTED my mushrooms!
    #1119468 - 12/07/02 08:27 AM (15 years, 5 months ago)

I wrote a Post around 10 days ago, my mushrooms wouldn't be growing, however I have systematicly been trying out different things, yesterday evening I took my 400w HighPressure UV lamp and lighted my mushroom chamber from about 10 feet away for 15minutes. I then made it dark and went to bed. this morning I thought (10h later) lets see what happend, because my mushroom AGAIN stopped growing, I open the chamber and don't trust my eyes, the mushrooms which were about 3cm small are now around 7cm and 4x thicker!!

Please explain me this, I have the feeling UV light rocks the growth dramaticly!!!

UV light causes mutations. You might have gotten lucky that you got a good mutation. There's a small change it'll happen again your next flush.

I don't personally buy the UV mutation thing.

How much UV does that thing put out compaired to sunlight?

/me smiles.

I'm not sure if UV rays made your mushrooms grow "better" but it may have an influence of some kind. To replicate that effect over and over again...now that would be the interesting part:)

For others, UV rays can, have and will mutate spores, mushrooms and mycelia. Using UV rays provide a great form of sterilization. But UV rays are basically a low level of radiation. And as we all know, radiation can do some crazy things! Also, certain UV lamps are designed to produce different levels of UV (duh) but most lab grade lamps can easily put out a concentrated spectrum of UV, more concentrated than the sun.

Regardless, if it worked, GREAT!!!

But it would be tre cool if you could produce the effect over and over again.

I've been messing with the effects of radiation and microwave radiation on mycelium. Pretty weird things happen in short amounts of time.
