Lighting
    #1996504 - 10/10/03 11:03 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

In his article regarding appropriate lighting for optimal pinning, Ainasko writes that he prefers a "50 watt incandescent bulb set to activate for one hour every six hours for a total of four hours daily."

I have read various suggestions on the best type/amount of light to use for the pinning and fruiting stages. I am using the casing technique. I have attached a picture of my setup.



(click on the image to enlarge)

Could someone tell me what the best amount/type of light is for pinning and how it needs to change for the fruiting stages. Also, if you have any comments about my setup in general please let me know. I'm new to the process.

Thanks

Thanks for the advice, that eases my mind a bit. I was just wondering one thing though. If I want to leave my setup unplugged, in case someone comes into my place while I'm gone (which would be very unlikely, but still) and somehow notices that my wooden chest is plugged into the wall, would I still be giving them enough light if I then plugged it in upon returning (I'm usually gone for about 8-9 hours a day) and left it on all night?

Great experiment. I think it is still premature to say,"lighting is not one of the environment variables that drastically affect anything in regards to the mushroom". Your experiment doesn't account for light spectrum or intensity. You said "all" your experiments. What others have you done? Have you done and intensity experiment? And for the original poster of this thread, experiments on these boards show that mushrooms do more growing in the dark. So a long period of darkness should not adversely affect your grow.

Yes, thank you. I have a copy, but I don't think that the subject is addressed much in these forums. A friend got a lot more pins alot quicker when he used a 6700K envirolite than with regular 100W bulbs. When I posted this, people seemed to not agree that light was much of a factor. I was just interested in whether or not this guy had done any of those experiments. It seems he has made up his mind that light is an environmental factor that doesn't drastically affect mushrooms at all. I disagree.

Light has seen to make little difference in pinning in most experments I've seen here yet TMC does say the blue specturm will help but I've also read that that light is only needed for a milli-second to activate so don't stress it if you can't get the light just perfect everyday.
