Is HPS lighting ok?
    #1834392 - 08/20/03 06:39 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

My cat is growing some mary jane and my cat also has a fully colonized mycobag ready to start pinning. Is it ok to put the bag some what out of the direct light of the HPS in a dimmer spot of the grow room? And it would also be getting 18 hrs of light.

Please let me know if that is to much light for the shroomies.

HPS light, what you using 250watt, either way I would say wrong light as shrooms like the blue spectrum where as the HPS gives of the red spectrum. I am a nebie at this game, but from what I have read shrooms need only a little light. Try the energey saving ones they give off that nice blue spectrum your after. About 15watt no more than that. Also they only need a couple of hours 5-6. Hope this helps.

>Ya thats cool.

Try to research when you answer a question like that (no offense)
it would probably be ok, but the heat produced by hps lightning is most likely way to high. Mushrooms are phototropic, they grow towards light, but too much light is not benificial. Its probably best to give them 6-12 hours a day. (im not sure on this though) Just buy a normal fluorescent light or try to find one high in the blue spectrum

MH lights would work better but what do I know.
