how many hours a day do the mushrooms need light?
    #2218217 - 01/04/04 12:35 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

I have a set up with a lamp and a low wattage blue light bulb. How long should i keep the light on while growing? I was thinking about buying a timer for it.

Thanks

According to TMC, one "millisecond" of light is enough to induce pinning. Get a fully colonized jar, set it in the light for a day, then put it in a dark closet for a few weeks, when you check it, you'll have shroomies.

To answer your question, tho, I'd say that 6-10 hours of light is fine for them. Unless you won't be home, a timer is a waste of money. I bought one and never use it, and I don't give them a specific photoperiod.

I never even consider it, under any normal circumstance you will be checking them anyways, so when you check just let light hit them.
It will most definently be enough.

I used to give my BRF cakes 15 minutes a day. I got absolutely HUGE flushes for uncased BRF cakes. I was told anymore would be harmful. (this was before I discovered this place)

I just leave the light on when i check them and then whenever i leave i turn it off. Hasnt failed me yet, although my first time around i left the lights on 12 hours and off 12 hours. Didnt really notice a huge diffrence. They do grow a bit faster without a ton of light but its barely noticeable!

i use a very very small led nightlight, i used to have it on a 12/12 cycle, but now i just leave it on 24hrs/day until the knots start to pin up, then i dont turn it on again until ive harvested and the next flush is on its way

"A human being is part of a whole, called by us the Universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feelings, as something separated from the rest--a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circles of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty."
