yes it can be used as a light source, but it causes a lot of mutations.

Fluorescents work a lot better unless you like inside-out caps and siamese mushrooms.

So mutations are good not bad? What are the downsides/upsides to mutations?

Mutations are neither good or bad. Usually when a grower gets mutations, it means he isn't doing something right. ( light, humidity, temp, ect. ) Some strains just produce more mutants than others no matter what you do. Unless you want perfect fruits, mutations aren't really a problem. I guess the only up-side to mutants is that some of them can look pretty unique.

Well, I'm not sure if a black light is a UV light, but UV lights cause mutations and blaack lights cause the mushrooms to grow as an albino color. UV rays really mess up mushrooms, put a terrarium with a cake in it near a window and see what I'm talking about.
