    #2057524 - 10/30/03 04:37 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

what is the minimum light per day required to induce pinning. i have a strange situation which makes it hard to suply light to my lil guys for long durations.
thanks dirty

Anything above this line is a lie. i do not cultivate psychadelic mushrooms nore do I intend to.

One day I encountered a bufo toad. Since that day I have been instilled with the power of the devil.

enough to see your hand, for a few minutes a day. in a nutshell, don't even worry about light until after they pin. then some is good for directional growth.  :thumbup:

The light FAQ is about half-way down the page, but read all of them so you don't ask the same questions again.

Good luck!


Republican Values:

1) You can't get married to your spouse who is the same sex as you.
2) You can't have an abortion no matter how much you don't want a child.
3) You can't have a certain plant in your possession or you'll get locked up with a rapist and a murderer.

4) We need a smaller, less-intrusive government.

bobmarley4prez, a small flourescent light will do. If you can see the mushrooms then there is sufficient light.

Oh man, perfect you have the same situation as me. Cept I have a stealth box so I didn't want an extention cord leading into the box so what I did is this:

Goto RadioShack and pick up a booklight. Take it a part a bit so the hood is movable and the ballast is remote. The super-glue the ballast to the side and the bulb/hood on the lid of your terrarium. Adjust it best for your situation. Just remember, super glue doesn't work on most plastic so you have to shred the light's plastic to a rough edge and sand the terrarium too. Then it'll stick.

Ya know, if you planned that shit a little better maybe she wouldn't have to use a pipe for a tooth!
