How much light and what type?
    #1556134 - 05/17/03 02:13 PM (14 years, 4 months ago)

How much light does everyone out there give their fruits? I've heard conflicting ideas ranging from everywhere to about 12 hours to total darkness. Also, does it make any difference what type of light you use... I have a friend who is using a grow lux light for a separate experiment and was wondering if exposing the cakes to that light will make any difference whatsoever.

I know they love the blue spectra of lights so find a light with higher concentrations of blue

Yeah they like blue. If your going for the natural approach those grow lux bulbs should be more than adaquate. For ideal fruiting you could give them around 12 hours of light, but you don't really need more than a few hours to stimulate them. It also depends on what strain you are using, if its a difficult fruiter try around 10-12. Some strains would fruit with only a half hour of light a day.

Would a blue lightbulb from a christmas light set work well?

actually having your grow light shine through side of a blue tupper ware will work

Just go buy one of those 24" all in one flourecent glo sticks from wally mart for $7.00.. That is all the light you will need. hell, even a room that gets lit by day is enough but you would get some long shrooms.
