Lighting... too much?
    #1430012 - 04/04/03 10:08 PM (13 years, 11 months ago)

First of all thanks to everyone in this community for creating such a useful resource for everyone to use!
My question is this... I've heard that psilocybin mushrooms are light sensitive and that they move toward light, so light is/can be good for them. However, I am wondering if these mushrooms have a limit on how much light they can have. I would like to use an incandescant bulb in a contained box to both light and heat my setup, but I am fearing I may over do it... Any ideas on how powerful of a light iIshould use in an enclosed space? (approx. 2' sqaure base, 3' ceiling where light will be)
Any past experiences with over-lighting? What would an ideal cycle be for a bulb in such a space? BTW I will be growing B+, then Malabar in said container.
Thank you all very much for your help!

The voices in my head say that they are new to this too, but from what they've made me read, light is needed indeed, but not very much of it. They say that from what tehy read, you only need ambient light--if you can see the stuff in your container, you are ok.

They also say that some people choose to use christmas lights, or even UV light, but the latter may cause freakshow shrooms.

Lightbulb in the chamber may be a bit of a problem as it may make the temp too high (needs to be ~70-74F I hear).

What? Surely, you did not take me seriously?!

Thanks for the input! I could always use a compact flouro that would release very little heat... Then again, I don't know what the optimum level of lumens for these guys is. Would a few Christmas tree lights serve them better than a brighter flouro?
