Light required for growth?
    #1356819 - 03/07/03 09:01 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

I haven't read any specifics about the amount of lumens required for mushrooms to grow effectively. I assumed it wouldn't be much, therefor I am planning on using a 6inch florescent light. I assume this will be enough....

Yes that will be plenty.
Mushrooms only need a little light to initiate pinning and to know which way is up.

So, too much light can harm the casing layer?
My friend has a 2 foot flourescent aquarium light that will be about a foot from the surface of the casing... so if he turned the light on for about 5-6 hours a day, would that be too much?

Well, 1 foot is not very far, but the fluorescent lamps are usually cool(as long they are not old) so this shouldn?t be a problem.
