Dumb ass light test
    #1281082 - 02/05/03 10:13 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

Well as many know I like to do tests on cakes.

I took a leftover F+ cake and exposed half to regular light and half to 250w MH that I use for cuttings.

My results    Bigger shrooms on the brighter side. I thaught this may be a fluke so I turned the cake around and got the same results.

I know it's a dumbass test but when you've smoked enough of these lady's then do tests I'm sure you understand.        :wink:    :grin:

i don't know why you think it's a dumbass test. i think it's a great test.

i'd like more control to ensure that some other factor wasn't involved. for instance a couple other things the 250 mh may have changed are heat and relative humidity. how can we be sure it was only a difference in light intensity that changed?

were the lights inside the chamber or outside? did you measure temp and humidity on each side of the cake?

still good work regardless!

very interesting, magash, and contrary to populay thought.

could this be a reaction to heat in a tropical strain? had these already pinned?

Maybe the ones of the "bright side" pinned earlier and had more time to grow fruits... thus it was bigger at the time the picture was taken. The big ones have already broken there veil, but the smaller ones still have more to grow. If your or someone else can repeat this experiment using more controls, that would be great...

I think you should take a picture of how big the ones on the "darker side" get. Also, I don't think it's fair becuase the "dark" side has less water and nutrients to through a flush with... and they share the same cake so they are impacted negatively by the "lighter side"

Sorry I left out the details. Lights were outside the chamber. Temps were 76F in the chamber and air was cirulated once every 2 hours with a vicks coolmist. The cake had a little cardboard blinder setup to keep the lighted halfs seperate.
