Where sill I find the right light?
    #2121696 - 11/19/03 03:31 AM (13 years, 17 days ago)

I was at Lowes looking for the right kind of blue light. All I found where blue bulbs. will these work ok? And nothing on the box, or any other box for that matter, mentioned anything about nanometers. I heard 450 is optimal, but how do I know what I'm getting?
thx for any help.

any light is okay (can you see your hand? it's enough)

shrooms don't need light like growing marijuna does

Yeah, don't worry about light right now. It isn't as big a factor as other things.

yeah any light will do,if your in a cold climate use an incandesant bulb(helps with heating),if your in a warm climate use a 13watt fluro tube.

It's Christmas time, so that means you should be able to find some clear christimas lights. My friend bought a 50foot one and wrapped it around the terrarium. Works great.

I have read about mushrooms pinning best with blue/violet light. What degree Kelvin of a fluoro tube is best? I have seen them up to 20000K for fish tanks and they look really blue.
