I believe you run the risk of mutating your fungids if you use lights of shorter wavelengths, such as ultra-violet, indigo, or blue. Ambient light is enough :smile:

Yes, it does also apply to azurescens.

"The best type of light tube is one which most closely resembles natural outdoor light: i.e. one that has at least 140 microwatts per 10 nanometer per lumen of blue spectra (440-495 nm). In contrast, warm-white fluorescent light has only 40-50 microwatts/nm/lum. and cool-white has 100-110 microwatts/nm/lum. Commercial lights mmeting the the photo-requirements of species mentioned in this book [including various psilocybes] are the "Daylite 65" kind manufactured by the Durotest Corporation and having a color temperature of 6500 degrees K and the "Vita-Lite" fluorescent at 5500 degrees K. These color temperatures provide the proper amount of blue light for promoting primordia formation in Pleurotus ostreatus, Psilocybe cubensis, and in other photosensitive species."

"More pinheads are initiated upon exposure to blue and ultra-violet light with distinct peaks at 370, 440, and 460 nanometers. Badham showed that light stimulation at these wavelengths for as little as half a millisecond per day caused primordia to form."

-Stamets, Paul. 1983. The Mushroom Cultivator. Agaricon Press. Olympia, WA.

Sunlight is best. The next best are the brands described by Stamets. The quality of the lighting is not terribly important though. These guidelines are for those wishing to maximize the potential of their lighting system. Just about any light source, aside from red light, will work fine.

Dude, try growing them outside before trying to grow them inside the sunlight will be enough.

It is very hard to grow them inside.

But if you insist, yes blue light is best but with a minimal amount of UV since it can cause mutation.  Keep in mind though that sunlight contains UV and they seem to be ok with sunlight.  A bit seems ok (like 370nm) but don't use a tanning bed light :wink:

If you want a more potent species to grow inside try panaeolus (copelandia) cyanescens.

Psyphon is correct. Azurescens can be a difficult species to work with indoors. Panaeolus cyanescens is another potent species, but with similar growing parameters to P. cubensis.

im not really worried about the indoor difficulty, if they dont fruit in one of my 2 dedicated fridges i'll make a wood chip pile out side and put them under there. The blue light bulbs i have are made for plants.
