Would 10 hours a day of a 4watt incandescent nightlight be allright? (fruiting)

it would promote fruiting, but I think you'll end up with a lot of muntant and deformed shrooms... don't quote me on that though. I just have found that when cakes or casings are deprived of light the friuts tend to deform. I know a lot of people say that they don't need that much light but I know it for a fact that cubes will actually grow towards a light source. In the past, I used to provide my casings with 30 minutes from a 50 watt incandescent bulb and I had beautiful results. But on the other hand I do know people who have provide less light and had equally as good results. So anyhow, I would suggest just to try a little more wattage then 4 watts.


Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!
