Too much light?
    #2793101 - 06/14/04 07:39 PM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Would too much light cause slow growth?

Well theres no need to give them more then 12 hours, but it doesn't harm them in any way. I've heard of it delaying the pinning process before though. They don't realy need light for anything other then knowing wich way to grow. If you think about it they grow in the darkness naturaly outside.

I agree Magash. More light is better than less, and more intense light is better than dim light.

"and more intense light is better than dim light."

I would say you are wrong but one look at your avatar tells me that you are no dumbass, please explain.??

Because I thought intense light was bad???

I use a aquarium light and its soft and has alot of light blue.

Should I also turn on my small compact fluorescent???
(I'm confuzed)

I would say you are wrong but one look at your avatar tells me that you are no dumbass, please explain.?? Where do the biggest shrooms come from, cow shits in open feilds. Usually in plenty of light. Also cause Stamets says so and he has and is a endless amount of info on mushrooms.

Because I thought intense light was bad??? I'm sure this is true, I'm not saying to go insane with the light.

I use a aquarium light and its soft and has alot of light blue.

Should I also turn on my small compact fluorescent??? Shouldn't need to.

I hear this they only need a few minutes of light crap, and it may be true, but you will get better flushes with more light but don't go nuts.

I use the grow-lux fluorescent lights that are high in the blue spectra.

12 on and 12 off.

Excellent lights!~

Excellent results!~

Re: Too much light? [Re: Roadkill]
    #4057468 - 04/15/05 03:19 AM (12 years, 3 months ago)

sadly i'm stuck with an old aquarium hood from when i had a pet turtle as a kid. i still have the red/clear bulbs in it, and most of the big plant bulbs are too big to fit in, at least the ones at petco

any ideas, roadkill, on where i could find an appropriate bulb? the hood says it's rated for 660W 250V, not sure if that would support the bigger fluorescent bulbs, but it should as far as i know

you're local so you may be able to help  :laugh:

Check your length of your bulb.

Then go somewhere that sells grow lights for plants...and try to find a bulb that might fit into your hood.

Or you could find a cheap hanging light fixture...and get bulbs for that.

I might have an extra hanging light fixture laying around in my workshop...if you really are local give me a pm and I just might part with it.
