Glo-Sticks
    #1148660 - 12/17/02 12:07 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

Hey fellow shroomers I have just thought of an ingenious way to hide my setup from all prying eyes. Anyways I cant get to the setup often and there aren't really any electrical outlets so I must resort to other means of getting light. On the top of my list is getting those light stick things that you crack and they glow for several hours. I was wondering if anyone knew if the light produced from these would do anything to hinder the mushrooms growth. I know that mutations will occur under a black light so I am wary. Thanks for any input!

The blue ones work best, as that's the spectrum that cubes prefer.

With glo sticks you'd have to change them daily. Why not go to the "dollar store" and pick up a battery powered reading light or one of those round stick up press lights. If there's no dollar store nearby then invest in a flahlight, Make a reflector for it outa tinfoil and suspend it above your grow with a string. That way you only have to change batteries every couple a days.

Use a flash light, and a rechargeable batteries.

No wait I'll use the flashlight. I found glow sticks on the internet for 65cents each but I dont think they're bright enough to get the job done.

it's not THAT big of a deal. seriously. mine only get light when i open up the rubbermaid box the casings are in to fan and mist them. that's it. and they're growing fine, and nice and straight too. so i don't think you have to worry about it too much.

but if someone can prove to me that giving them so much light per day, and in such and such a frequency range, then i might chagne my setup. but for now, this works fine, and costs me a lot less.

I'm not sure if that would work as they don't give off the same wavelength, at least I don't think.
