Cannabis LED grow lights for mushies?
    #11359052 - 10/31/09 07:53 PM (8 years, 8 months ago)

Has anyone tried to use LED lights like the UFO for shrooms before?
I was wondering if the blue and red bulbs will stimulate growth in fungus like it does for plants?

i thought about that, but thats a lot of money to spend when CFLs work the best (apparently)

i was just reading a post by RR i think it was... talking about 6500k is the perfect lighting to use.

There's at least ten answers in this thread that are flat out wrong.

Light does play a major role in the size of the mushrooms.  Mushrooms derive 'energy' from light, and bright high frequency light will grow larger mushrooms with more finish weight.  Commercial mushroom farms have proved this fact beyond debate.

HPS has a very low color temperature and is not the best frequency of light to use.  Most are around 2700 Kelvin, while mycelium pins and produces the largest mushrooms when given light at around 6500 Kelvin.

Light does not tell mushrooms which way to grow.  They grow opposite gravity in the absence of light.  Mushrooms turn towards light because they are benefiting from it.

Light is a pinning trigger, increases growth and vigor of mushrooms after pinning, and helps to coordinate the circadian rhythm when run in a normal day/night routine that includes warmer daytime and cooler night time temperatures.

The lights that are proved to work best are 'natural daylight' fluorescent in the 6500 Kelvin range.  I'm running tests on LEDs and will report back the results once I've confirmed them though multiple grows.

Lighting requirements of mushrooms.
