how many hours of light?
    #1420443 - 03/31/03 09:54 PM (15 years, 2 months ago)

The FAQ suggests a couple hours of light so do a lot of other people but some say 12 hours. How many hours should I keep the light on? Thx

If i just put them in my house somewhere, near a window, but not so they get direct light from the window.. would that be ok?

I've read that 6 is sufficient, and that 12 is overkill....but it doesn't really matter as long as the terrarium's temp doesn't get too high due to the constant lightbulb heat.

Once pins form, light isn't really essential. Without it fruits grow in all sorts of weird directions, which isn't usually what you want (but it is a fun experiment for the beginner mycologist).
