16 hours lighting ok?
    #11293940 - 10/21/09 07:54 PM (8 years, 5 months ago)

Can my fruiting chamber get 16 hours fluorescent light each day (under a shared plant light). I know 12/12 is preferred but is 16/8 ok??

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.

It will be fine like he said. I only give mine around 6-8 hours per day...Just a preference and its easier on me.

They'll still grow fine even with 24 hour light. I work from home dispatching during the night, mine get sunlight from the window they're next to all day, and light from my CFL's I use for room light all night. Noted the CFL's aren't in the right spectrum, they look pretty yellow/red to me.

the most explosive pinset i have had recieved about 14 hours of lighting, once the amazing pinset had formed i let it go in almost complete darkness for a while... it was amazing

honestly im starting to think that it's based far more on genetics then it is lighting.
