"Blue Light Special, Aisle 5"
    #2581343 - 04/20/04 04:13 AM (12 years, 7 months ago)

I have been having a lot of trouble with pinning in the last couple of months. I would get pins eventually, but it was taking more than 3 weeks in most cases. (Side note: Is a "plant light", putting off 630 lumens, going to be good for pinning?)

I was strolling through Walmart one day and came across the lights shown in the pictures. They have about 90 to 100 Blue christmas lights in each of the globes.



I ended up getting pinning, and in a much greater abundance, after 4 to 5 days with these babies installed in the project.

Just thought I would share, if anybody happens to come across anything like this, I highly recommend.

A conclusion is simply the place where you got tired of thinking

That's a very cool light emitted from your lamps.

It's possible that your previous fluorescent lamp lacked the optimal wavelegnth (480 nm) to induce pinning. I have had excellent luck with compact fluorescent lamps, much more so than the long cylidrical lamps.

I made a chamber once in which I used blue rope lighting. I still found that the fruits would grow toward the door of the chamber because the sunlight produced a more intense light.

I love the blue though!!! It's such a comfortable color.

its like 2 moons for the mushrooms to grow towards. :smile:

I think a full spectrum light would do the trick.  its always worked for me. :smile:

ps. I love the blue color... its very relaxing and it seems to create a very positive atmosphere for someone to stare at them for hours. :laugh: :stoned:

Really great idea man.  I just use a blue lightbulb from Wal-Mart and my little guys love it!  Dig the globes though.  :smile:
