Mushroom light runs out after a few hours
    #1289259 - 02/07/03 05:14 PM (14 years, 17 days ago)

I cased my substrate two weeks ago and to my surprise today I have 3, 1 inch pins sticking out :grin:
Unfortunately I was not expecting them for another couple weeks and had no light on them (they are in a dark box). I put a light on them and two of the shrooms are on the right track upwards but the other is curving into itself. I'm running a small white light on a 9-volt battery. I checked the light after a few hours and it ran out.
What is a longer lasting light and battery I can use?
Will the pin curving in on itself grow upward eventually? I tried bending it upward with my fingers, but decided to leave it alone when I saw bruising.

Never try to bend mushrooms while they are growing, they'll jsut brake. I would jsut see what happens.

Best bet is a small plug-in fluorescent fishtank light. I had one of those "tap-lights" and that would run out of batteries in like 2 or 3 hours. Batteries suck.

Go get a fluorescent and an extension cord, or even an old lamp that you could put above them, ^^^ sunlight works good too!

Putting it out in the open is not an option. It needs to be concealed.
I guess I'll go with the flourescent fish light.
Thanks for the help guys.

yo dude if you gotta keep it concealed definatly use a florescent.. that type of light gives off the least amount of heat ...just as a precaution not to burn the place down or anything with an incadescent light

I've said this before, but...
You don't need a light, man! It doesn't matter what direction they grow. They don't give a shit. Try leaving them in complete dark.. they'll grow fine. Mycelium only needs a couple microseconds of light to trigger pinning.
