How much light should my shroomies get?
    #1571846 - 05/23/03 12:32 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

When my cakes are in the fruiting chamber, how much light would be too much? I'm thinking of mounting a small flourecent light above the chamber, about 8-12 in above it. How long should i leave it on a day?

Don't mount the flourecent. They like blue wave lengths. I use a black light that I just set on top of my lid and let it run 24/7. The size of my window is only the size of a cd case.

Flourescent lights are recommended and very well suited for fruiting actually. Some people expose their mush to light for just a few minutes while others expose them for hours I've heard success with both, try different times and find what works for you.  I wouldn't recommend black lights unless you want mutations though.
