Lighting for monotub
    #25434565 - 09/04/18 10:39 AM (2 years, 8 months ago)

I’m new to this. This is my second grow. My first grow worked out great, I used myco grow bags, but now I’m using monotubs. My question is, Do I have to cut a hole on top of my monotub to let light in from my CFL? Or can I just let light through the top without having to cut a hole on top? I have a clear monotub, and light should pass right though it. I’m just not sure if my substrate will be getting enough light through the clear plastic. So basically, do I have to cut a hole and seran wrap it...? Or is it good as is, and will shine through clear plastic and initiate pinning and then fruiting?

Saran is Plastic too. Clear tubs are fine. Light doesn't much have to do with pinning. Light doesn't cause side pins, and pins happen even in complete darkness. But if you don't want ugly fruits use a light.

Good point. Didn’t really think about it that way. I’ll leave them as is. Thanks a lot

Yeah translucent tub lids (as opposed to transparent) scatter the light which means you lose some but it is also spreaded better.

If your lighting is not very poor it should be enough since it is just meant to serve as a trigger not for photosynthesis like with plants.

So.. bod: does light not contribute to pinning in general as one of the triggers together with the gas levels (and of course the development of the myc)? While pinning can happen in total darkness just like fruiting can be done in darkness, seems to me like that doesn't necessarily mean that keeping light AND fae away from crevices (on the sides) can't help prevent side pinning in part?

When is best to introduce lights? I know you do straight to fruiting conditions in your Easy AF tek.... what's a good rule of thumb? what until a tub consolidates???

Thanks
