Re: When to give light

Yes you are suppose to incubate mycelium in total darkness with minimum exposure to light. Introduce a flourescent light with a "natural light" spectra (resembling natural light) when you birth the cake. Light incourages pinheads to form. You have some of the termnology backwards, fruiting means to initiate primordia formation. you ask, "what about fruiting" but what you ment was, what about "cropping". cropping means maintaining the mushroom crop by sustaining environmental conditions. Once you introduce light in order to initiate primorida you are suppose to maintain the light throughout the duration of cropping inorder to incourage even more primordia to form and more or less to direct the mushroom in which direction to grow, mushrooms are photosensitive organisms, they are not photosynthetic, meaning they do not use light as part of their metabolism but they will grow twords light. keep the light on 12/12, 18/6 or 24 hours a day.

My buddy kept his jars in the dark until he birthed them. (it's ok if they get a little light when checking the jars).
After he birthed them he put light on them for 12-14 hours a day. This long may not be necessary, but it has always worked for him.
He uses the light all the way through harvest.
Good luck

recent experiments indicate that for some of the more difficult-to-pin strains, incubating in light will help trigger pins in a shorter time.
we've been able to get pins in vitro for several notoriously hard to pin strains.

My jars incubated in the same room with a metal halid, not in direct sunlight, but they got plenty of light. When I birthed them I got pinning within 2-3 days, and im using one of those cheap perlite setups.

sean1234 or anyone else out there, why are your supposed to incubate mycelium in total darkness with minimum exposure to light? also why do so many people have lights on their cakes/casing for 12 hours a day, i thoguht they just needed a little bit of light? does this constant light make it pin faster? i think i read somewhere about it telling the shrooms which way to gorw.

muffinbear,

it is so that the mushrooms don't start growing in the jar before you birth them i had this happen to a few of my jars the mushies end up rotting in the jar and contaminatring the whole thing if they are to early to birth
