Read, read, read, and still no conclusive answers. It seems about 50/50 on type of lighting. So which is it?? Do I need a BLUE spectrum light, or will regular bulbs and flourescent bulbs work?? It's almost time, and I really need to know!!

Looked back and found another thread, so nevermind! (It was even posted on the same day! But I'm not one to digress, but it actually worked, just this once.

Mycelium doesn't need light as a source of energy the way plants do. It just needs light to let it know that it's grown out of the ground or cow patty it was growing in, and is now outside in the fresh air. Light tells the mycelium to start reproducing (spreading spores) and that requires a mushroom. Since a mushroom growing underground will be unable to spread spores very far, the mycelium waits until it sees light.

Once your cakes are birthed and in the terrarium, they need just a few minutes of indirect light each day. Thirty minutes in "the middle of your room", as you say, is plenty. If there's enough light to see your cakes, there's enough light to trigger pinning. Also, avoid UV light unless you have a very good reason to use it. It does unpredictable things to most living things including mushrooms.

Hope this makes sense...

Good luck.
