light from day one(in the incubator)
    #2386470 - 02/28/04 01:33 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I have been over at mycotopia and I have been getting some more ideas on how the best way to grow is.....and alot of the guys over their have been telling me light from day 1 in the incubator is the way to go. they said pinning wise it speeds it everthing way up.while here though everone says total darkness in the incubator. Now this I am sure is only for cakes because if you would try casing pinning cakes i am sure you would damage the pins. so what doea everyone think about this.I don't know the science behind this all I know is that mushrooms need light,air exchange,and a temp in the 70's to pin(doesn't need the temp in the 70's but it helps alot). so maybe I could get some opinions on what people think about this.

I have incubated with and without light and I cannot say conclusivly that light from the beggining will actualy induce pinning earlier. I have tested this with controls and subjectssime that were in the light pinned later than some that were in the incubator and vese versa...

regardles... it doesnt seem to be detrimental to growth.

hmm.....thats interesting see like everone else i just had my first grow and I am trying to make it better(human nature i guess, or maybe it is because i am american.....lol). The part of my grow that I was really kinda upset about is pinning time. I mean i waited 2 weeks just to get my first cake to pin and their are still some that haven't. Anyone have any idea's/suggestion's or more thoughts on the ligt while incubating?all opinions are welcome.

I know that with some fungi light is an inhibitor for germination. THat may not be the case with cubes, but that may be where the NO-LIGHT thing started. A friend has found (and I may get yelled at for this) that a good light really gets pinning going. For example, he had a 6700K (full spectrum) 100W envirolite that he used b/c he had it lying around. His pinning was greatly improved as far as time and number of fruits. Then again, he also has a dual-outlet aquarium pump that shoots air into the terrarium at opposite ends. He has that on a timer that goes off every other hour for an hour.

now if you are going to case your cakes do you still run your lights? I mean because like I said above if you got pins going and than you crumble up you cakes doesn't that fock everything all up?

I'm not following, but I think you would want your casings in the dark till you're ready to fruit (ie. the mycelium has overtaken the casing layer evenly so as to produce an even pinset). That's just my 2 cents. IMO if you had the light on the casing the entire time, you would have some mycelium fruiting before the rest of it could.

Light in incubation is mainly to stop pf cakes from pining in vitro before they are fully colonised, as this can cause serious issue. Use your imaginations.
