How much light should I give non-pinned cakes.........
    #2283305 - 01/29/04 11:08 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

How much light per day should I give non-pinned cakes that I put in the fruiting chamber before pinning in the jars.. They have been in about a week and still no sign of growth but the cakes look beautiful..

Am I not giving them enough light? I have been giving in between 3 to 7 hours of light per day(more hours as time went on in an attempt for pinning)

I'm a 12/12 kinda guy, but I think lots of fresh air and correct temp and rH will help you more than light.

It doesn't really matter, I go 12/12 like Ben_Stein but everyone's different. Shrooms just need light to point them in the right direction not like the pot plant in your closet that uses light to feed/grow. Seems like i read somewhere that shrooms only actually need a few seconds of light per day. Just read and come up with your own conclusion.

Yep, that's exactly what you should do.
I never wait for in vitro pins and think that those that do are wasting a lot of time.

Get those cakes into fruiting conditions and they will pin and fruit, which, for me, is the name of the game.  :wink:
