do you need to grow mycelium in total darkness?
    #1915526 - 09/14/03 03:25 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I innoculated 10 jars of grain. Do i need to incubate them in total darkness. If light hits it will it harm it?

Light will not harm the mycelium but may induce premature pinning.

This is what it will happen to your jars if you allow only a little bit of light ..








You will get a 75% colonized jar with shrooms growing invitro. This is not the best way to grow them but some people like invitro teks where ugly mushrooms can be grown.

Dawgs Incubator is lined with sheets of black plastic. This does two things, stop all light, and keep them a bit warmer than the would be just sealed up.
