Opinions on optimal light amounts for cakes?
    #1132212 - 12/11/02 11:54 AM (14 years, 3 months ago)

What are your opinions on how much indirect sunlight a newly birthed cake should get?

The FAQ says "a couple of hours" daily. I've seen only one hour recommended elsewhere, and have seen people here mention as much as twelve hours.

What do you think works best?

The reason you have seen so many different answers is that it doesn't really matter, so long as they get some light.

There was a post a while back where someone actually compared mushroom growth under different lighting conditions. They grow faster when there's no light. I changed up my lighting from 12/12 to a 3on/21 off, and I noticed faster mushroom growth.
