any light (flourescent or incadescent) will work just fine.....you don't need much light. Just make sure the at least light covers the growing chamber.

Should be fine.  The light does not have to be that bright.  And fluorescent works well.

Danny you bastage stealing my post  :tongue:

1 15 watter should do fine unless you are using a hot white bulb.....40,000k is optimum...

also....

Fluorescent lights produce less heat

Incandescent light can produce a lot of heat depending on the wattage...which isn't good for the shroom enviornment...

Flourescent Lights are the way to go bro :smile:

Thank Anno?

Anyway, any light works the little ones are not picky, they care more about your technique. Christmas lights work, lights on timers work, but most of all the sunlight works.

Get an 8QT Mirro Pressure Cooker from Wal-Mart for like $40, you can fit 8 cans in the bottom of it...and if you can stack the rest on top :smile:
