Fluoros or sunlight?
    #2612424 - 04/28/04 06:55 PM (13 years, 2 days ago)

I have 2 options, i could use a big reading light(one of those snake lights) or i could put them in a room upstairs under a window where they would get natural light! now in alaska it's almost summer and we are getting near 24 hours of daylight, so what would you peopel suggest? artificial or the real deal? :headbang:

you don't need much light. if you can see the shrooms its enough. also shrooms are not phototropic and dont need light to grow. it just tells them to initiate pinning and which way to grow.

Well... I KNOW for a fact last night I saw something on this exact subject... Unfortunately I can't remember where :frown: Anyways to answer your question, fluorescent (blue spectrum light) gets the best reaction from mycelium and shroomz and whatnot... Less of a reaction from yellow or red spectrum light (incandescent, sunlight)... Hope that was helpful!

Spend 5 bucks at one of the marts and you can get a nice very versatile fluorescent light. It will help your babies grow upwards not outwards. When they grow outwards they usually fall over, which will fuck up your chances of taking a sterile print.
