They seem really yellowish... the room took on an amber look when I turned them on... I thought they were supposed to have heavy blue spectrum, not red...???

You want fluorescent, incandescent are unsuitable. Newbie's got it right.

they will grow but your pinset will be effected and the fruits might not be as numerous

Although i may advise others in a general way regarding all types of mushroom grows, and may even post question from other forums about growing "active" mushrooms, i only grow non-"active" mushrooms and edibles.

incadescent give off too much heat. flourescent fixtures are $10 less. look at the 2nd pic noobie posted the color temp is what you need to look for. not weather or not it 'looks' blue.

Pretty much on the same subject, noob, what wattage do you recommend for say, a 56 liter monotub. I've heard shroomies don't have a need for a whole lot of light, just some at the right spectrum.
