Light hours and photosensitivity
    #1620525 - 06/09/03 01:50 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

My terrarium is really an aquarium with a cool mist humidifier input and a fluorescent 14W light tube which peaks in the red and blue light spectrum. How long should this be on for each day in order that the shrooms grow towards it? Will leaving the light on constantly inhibit mushroom growth?

4-5 hours a day is more than enough.

OK, but will leaving the light on longer be a hazard to mushroom growth? It would be a lot easier just to leave the light on all the time.

No, it wont. Just don?t choose a too strong light.

How strong is too strong? And what are the signs of this being too strong? I also have a similar setup, i usually give 12-16 hours of light like Stamets suggests.

by strong he means hot i'm sure.. My friend uses 16 hours of light from a 24' floro stick. he tells me the longer light period makes for lower mushrooms and thicker stems instead of flopped over shrooms. He says it doesn't help weight but it does help apperance.
