I have a few questions regarding light. First off, is light (indirect) absolutely necessary for fruiting? and secondly, can artificial light be used, such as HPS. Ifso, how long does the light need to be on for? If anyone has any experience with using artificial light for fruiting, please let me know.

thank you

yes light is neccisary. its how the mycilium knows when it has reached the surface of its substrate, so it knows when to produes fruit.

flours work great for cubensis, ambient workes best. be carefull with weed lights(hps/metal halid) they produce alot of heat and can greenhouse your containers with all their light. if you have windows in your house then you have enough light for growing. use something smaller than your weed lights(fluro/ambient room light).

thanks for the quick reply. floro's would be much easier to work with too. i completely forget about them. what about incandencent <sp> light? I want to use a small walk-in closet w/ of course no windows, so i need to supply the light. what walk-in closets have windows anyways?!

thanks

why use an HPS????

why not use that for cannabis.


My buddy the lorax swear that a good low watt flouro is all a person needs and it seems to him that these "blue" spectrum lights, give awsome pin sets.
