Fluorescent light on 13 hours a day
    #11324759 - 10/26/09 04:08 PM (8 years, 10 months ago)

I heard you need 12 hrs a day for fruiting, but with my work schedule, I have to leave the lights on for 13 hours, is the extra 1 hour too excessive and alter the way the mushies grow??

You do know they sell timers for such things? :smirk:

I don't think the extra time would be an issue, but what if you forget alltogether?

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.

They'll turn into mutant zombie shrooms that eat your brains! Or they will be fine. Or you could buy a timer for $5.

Might or might not be the right color spectrum. Cooler daylight bulbs tend to be in the right range. Blue instead of yellow.
Buying new bulbs won't cost much, if you have to. And they will brighten up your room.

It says on the light tube it's Norelco cool white, 40 watts.

so it's the right range since you said it's cooler which the description said it's cool white

Cool white is fine, as is any normal day/night schedule. It doesn't have to be exactly 12/12.  Cool white is usually in the 5,000 K to 6,000 K range, which is pretty close to the optimum 6,500 Kelvin.

ok cool.
1 last question before I seem to be annoying...
So do I do the lighting on the cakes right after I dunked and rolled them?
Or do I wait for sometimes or until it started pinning?

Light is part of 'fruiting conditions'. So, yes.
