Christmas Lights Theory?
    #1380129 - 03/16/03 08:13 AM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Yeah, my friend asked me to do some research for him, on lighting, about growing his mushrooms... I found that the only reason that you need light is because that way the shrooms will know which way to grow (up, towards the light). So, i figure he can put christmas lights around the entire inside of his terrarium, because the shrooms grow toward light... I suggested this because i've read about shrooms clumping together and not getting enough fresh oxygen, and actually turning a little black/stunting growth.... I can't find this technique anywhere on the internet, but i doubt I made it up... I seemed pretty apparrent to me, but that's just how my mind works... So, what i'm asking is: "Does anyone know anyone who has actually done this/something very similar to it, and did it work well, or fuck something up." My friend doesn't trust me with this, and wants some verification, so could you guys hlep me out?

Well the reason for light is to initiate pinning. Mushrooms don't get any energy from light what so ever.

He never said they were gaining any nutritional value from it, dudes. He's saying if they grew towards different light sources, they wouldn't grow in clumps. Heh Anyhow yes you're right, mushrooms are phototrophic and indeed will 'follow' the light, even after pinning. Your experiment could very well work, but IMO I think it's a waste of time. A regular ol' bulb placed above your terrerium will do just as nicely.
