Too much light?!?!?
    #1369435 - 03/12/03 02:50 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I just realized that I fucked up: when I starting applying light I used a lamp and pointed it directly down on teh shrooms. The bulb was about a foot and a half away... It was like that for at least 8 hours strait, until I started pointing it up. Its gotten 2 12 hour sessions of light like this.....

Will they be alright? My cakes were in a sea of shrooms casing, and they are now about halfway through the top layer, equally dispersed in dots of mycelium.

the only problem you may possibly have caused is a drying/burning of the casing/mycelium. only you can know this. as for too frequent light or too intense light, IME it's not possible. Again, the only possible negative side effects of "too much" light are excessive drying from evaporation or burning from too much heat, which generally go hand in hand but not by necessity.

What would it look like if it were over-dried?

dryed mycelium is blued or bluing. a dried casing varies very much with the constituent materials and their ratios. like i said, only you would know. i have seen mycelium dry without bluing. it looks more or less plastic, very similar to overlay. very matted and not "hairy". you'd be able to tell if you were paying any attention to what it looked like BEFORE it dried.

"you'd be able to tell if you were paying any attention to what it looked like BEFORE it dried."

Oh so true. By simply observing your mushrooms, and using some common sense about the basic growing habits of Ps. Cubensis, you can pretty much figure anything out yourself. How many questions do you see me asking here? Theres a reason for that. Learning is half the fun. WOW im ranting like a fool. Anyways, just my thoughs. SD1
