Light During colonization?!
    #1507198 - 04/30/03 11:57 AM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I heard that if you let them have light during colonization is makes things faster fruiting)...any drawbacks?

dunno man, Ive never heard that!

as far as I am aware you should keep them pretty much in the dark at all times, a little light for direction & pin initiation. there was a graph floating around when I first joined (by Anno) showing comparative growth in light & dark, the fruits grew quite alot faster in the dark.
as for colonisation I think the consensus is that dark is better!

I hae heard that as well. However you will run into a problem with premature pinning which will take away from having an even flush. The pin may abort, die and rot before the substrate is fully colonized, leading to contamination.

but i heard it wont start fruiting until it has enough nutrients (about full colonization)...so by then youd be ready for fruiting, anyway aborts are good i hear

yes you are correct, but only to a certain extent. light WILL trigger pinning if you have a lamp over it from the start waaaay before you want to birth, so if you dont want to wait for fruits to pop up, then sit your jars infront of a light approx a week before 100% colonization (so anywhere from 50-90%)

:frown: :frown: Light is a NO NO, during colonization. As light will initiate pins to form. Allowing or providing light, before full colonization is counter productive & leads to very uneven pin sets.

Think about it. Myc is giving colonization 100% of its attn. Before 100% colonization occurs, if you intro light, colonization slows, as the myc now has the signal ti start pinning.

Best colonize W/O light, then after full substrate colonization ---->case, then provide light & fresh air exchange. Then, as myc colonizes the casing surface, patch case over the early myc outcrops, so that other myc evenly colonizes the casing material.

Then, when myc crops out evenly, go for the gusto & fruit the puppies out.

:tongue: :wink: 6T
