Sunlight amount for first grow
    #11234215 - 10/12/09 06:26 PM (8 years, 12 days ago)

I've just ordered some spores and will be beginning my first grow attempt in a couple weeks! I have a couple questions regarding the amount of sunlight required during the fruiting stage.

I have a roommate who I barely know and do not trust with the knowledge of my 'shroom growing. I'm wondering if I could keep my terrarium in a closet during the first part of the day (where it will receive no sunlight), and take it out for 2-4 hours every day (when I know my roommate won't be around) to receive sunlight. Is this enough sunlight for them to grow properly without hindering speed and potency?

Thanks!

I have had to do the same thing to keep my grow on the down low. They grew without issues that I knew about.  The potency thing don't know if they lost potency but know that they still had a kick

Its probably a bad idea... I dont know the answer to ur question but i just dont think its smart.

I have enough to worry about being paranoid about other ppl (outside my house) knowing about what im doing.
I cant imagine hiding it from somebody I live with..

I recommend u at least wait a while till u can know u can trust him.

purchase some shrooms and ask him if he wants indulge with u and gauge his reaction.

Im sure u already thought about all this tho

be smart :2cents:

Use a florescent light - 12hr on and 12hr off.

Get the temp range that simulates sunshine.

Thanks for your advice. I doubt that he'll report me or anything, it's just a matter of him spreading the word that I'm growing.

And with the fluorescent light, that would draw attention to my closet where I'm keeping it, which is why I'm wondering if I could do without, and just give them a few hours of sunlight each day.

Low sunlight will produce very thin and long mushroom as most of the mushroom's energy will be spent reaching for what little light you provide.

Good call.

You could get by with a few hours of light a day.

Most important is that you get them plenty of fae.

Optimal conditions produce optimal results.

Now does that mean they will be any less potent?

No probably just smaller caps and spindly stems.  The potency shouldn't be effected too much

fresh air exchange. you need a tub or something with lots of holes in a room with current, or air flow. That plus a little manually fanning, and that will cycle the C02 and replace it with oxygen.

this is huge!  make sure you fan and mist at least 6 times a day.  don't run a fan directly on them, that will dry it out too much.  but if you have to have circulation and misting.  very, very important.

FAE IMO is more important then lighting but i thought the question was about lighting?

Will opening the box to mist them affect the humidity in there? I'm using the PF-Tek method. (Sorry for asking stupid questions, I just want to get everything right!)  :grin:

You caught me! :tongue: I obviously didn't know enough about fae to even include it in my original question.

It will effect the humidity neglibly you are increasing the RH by misting then fan for FAE as long as you have enough perlite on the bottom you are good

I want to see someone show some damn proof about mushrooms needing light. There's a lot of controversy over them needing light, how much, what spectrum, and as to weather or not it affects potency.

It's all bullshit as far as I'm concerned unless someone can prove it. I've posted a study that proved that mycelium can grow slightly faster with different colored lights, but the study made no mention about potency or fruiting yields.

By the way, "BECAUSE I'VE SEEN IT" is not a fucking VALID supporting argument.
