if it's a really bright and hot lamp I'd leave it on for maybe 4 or less hours in the day. I'm using a black light so I'm able to leave it on 24/7 without the inside of the terrarium getting too hot. Just don't let it get too close to the top or your cakes will roast. The light's just to tell the cakes it's time to pin, as well as make them grow upwards.

FYI: You'll get pins and fruit under UV but your mushrooms will undergo genetic damage that will show up several generations down the line. If you're not printing and you just grow from purchased syringes, UV light will work, I suppose, since you will not be propagating the genetic line, but unless you have a good reason to use UV (like stealth) use ordinary light. If it's bright enough to see, it's bright enough to trigger pinning.

Nice, diffuse, natural light from a window for a few minutes to a few hours a day is plenty; and its histogram is already optimized for growing everything on Earth. You can't beat nature.

I didn't know that Diploid. I'm not planning on making prints or anything. And yeah, there is a stealth issue. I don't know about UVs etc, but do u mean that my light has more UVs than sunlight?

just leave a window open, undirect sunlight is the best plain an simple. No need to make it too complicated.Stealth?? well, if for some reason you cant get the fungus exposed to sunlight, a closet light will work or something like that for several hrs.

It's not that your light emits more UV than sunlight. It's more that the distribution of wavelengths is drastically different from sunlight and that difference has been shown to cause genetic damage.

If you really need a UV light for stealth, then go ahead and use it, but don't try to propagate the genetic line. If you don't need stealth, any ordinary light will work.

Good luck.
