Adaptive/Accustomed Mycelium?
    #1473555 - 04/19/03 05:21 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hi all,
Just a quick question... For 3 days I've been trying to pin my cakes under a light cycle of 7 hours - 5pm - midnight. In the last two days I have only given them 2 hours, will the mycelium get 'confused' by this change in lighting? Will it effect growth?
Thanks for any help!
Nirvana  :smile:

No it shouldn't deter anything really.

Good question. I've measured the fruits when the lights come on, and again when they go off. I've found that most growth occurs during the dark hours. Is it just me or has anyone else noticed this also?

Yes. In fact someone did a test with that and found it to be true. Bigger mush, less lgiht; an inverse reaction.

Supposedly just the flash from a camera can tell the pins which way is up . Persoanally I would increase the lighting time though to at least 10 hours . I'm one of those sun worshippers and believe more is better .
But no it will not get confused , it still will tell pins to reach for the sky or the direction your light is coming from .

That happened the first time I grew a cake. I had no growth at all at midnight after 4 days of 7 hour light cycle, turned lights off and put them away to give them their darkness, checked them 12 hours later (12 in afternoon) and I had 6 pins and a monster which was about 2 cm, all that happened overnight! I was amazed to say the least :laugh:
Thanks for the info guys, much apprecciated / acknowledged

EDIT: 'amzed' to 'amazed'

Yes Roger I agree with you on that , most growth does seem to occur in the dark , was considering doing some experiments with mushies holding back on lighting times once pins have fully set , maybe this would make bigger mushies , than giving full light all the time .
Plan ....... give light for 10 - 12 hours till pin set is complete , than cut back light time to say 5-6 hours a day thru maturity of mushie . But it seems to me caps want open up faster when in dark more . HMMMMMMM Definetly deserves some attention .
