12/12 light timer
    #2863395 - 07/07/04 01:10 AM (13 years, 1 month ago)

Just wondering, what kind of timer do you guys use for 12/12? Are there any simple ones that just cut power ever 12 hours? How much do these usually cost?

Those timers seem easy to come by, but what about timers for a cycle such as 5 min every hour for an ultrasonic? I can't seem to find any that do that...maybe I'm looking in the wrong place?

Try Radio Shack. They have a lot of electronic things that most places don't carry. You can also try a hydroponics store.

Target has em, that'll set to the minute. I think you can program up to 48 settings per day. They're priced well too.

When you're growing mushrooms, the only reason to have light on them is so they know which way is up. I'd say at the most just ambient light from a window or a refurbished $.25 nightlight.... is all they need.

Light is the least important part of the growing process IMO. Save your $$$ unless you want to spend it. 24-7 light works. 5 minutes per day works.

i got a timer at longs drugstore. $9 i believe. you can set 30 minute increments so it'll work for anywhere between 30 minutes to 24 hours a day.
