12/12 light cycle. Turn it off or on when you go to bed. Mushrooms don't need light to grow per say, they just need to find a direction to grow. Make sure light isn't penetrating the casing conatainers and that the light is directly on top. fan regularly and mist lightly when the surface looks dry, but try not to mist directly on the pins you might cause them to abort. Your best bet for watering is after the first flush. Ideally you would want to have sufficient water in the casing before pins start to grow, misting only lightly every other day or so.

That rhymes marge, and you know it rhymes.

I just leave them out in my room in a clear container so tehy get light whenever. You can mist the micro casings directly i never had any aborts with my micro casings and id spray right inot the continers and fill it up then allow it to dunk for a 2-6 hours having 2-3 dasy between each dunk while in fruiting. I think dunking of the normal 12-24 hours as you would after a harvest would drown the mycellium if its fruiting, experiment, see what works best. You can also leave a thin pool of water at the bottom and the mycelluim can hanld it and teh shrooms use that as a reserve.
