Just for general information. I was wondering if someone was using the PF Tek. Would adding a blue spectrum flouro to the project would enhance the grow. If so should it be on 24/7 or 12/12 cycles or what sort of time table? Thank You.

shrooms are not phototropic like plants, meaning they do not need light to grow, just to initiate pinning and to tell then which way is up. Even a couple of hours is good enough. I have read blue spectrum is better but I have not seen any dramatic increase in yields in my expierience.
