I dont want perlite though, from what I have heard. Oh, another question, shrooms dont need much direct light, or even indirect light for that matter. Is that rigiht?

No light during incubation.

When inducing pinning/fruiting, they do need light to direct the shrooms where to go (and tell them it's time to fruit, in combination with a temperature drop and lower CO2 levels...). Some people prefer 12 hous of light, 12 dark. Other say it just needs a few seconds of light per day. Or somewhere in between...

Just make sure you're not giving them light during incubation.

They don't need much light. If you want them to look pretty light is a good thing. They'll grow nice and straight. With little or no light, they will grow in all different directons. They grow wavey, or in a corkscrew, etc.

5 minutes would be fine. i have best results with 6 hours on and 6 hours off, but you definetly dont need much light at all.
