I don't know what kind of lighting to use
    #2949296 - 07/31/04 05:39 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

I did some reading on this site about different types of growing lites that r usedto introduce pinning. However they all had
faults by not creating enough micro-einstains or by creating too much heat. I wanted to use a flourescent light but i found
out that they were too weak. Can someone give me some suggestions and tell me what types of lights they've used to make
their yields a success?

I've had success with gro-lux flourescents.

This is what I use, and it works. Except when I bought it, it was $9.99.


It doesn't really matter what kind of light you use, since shrooms dont get energy from light like plants. You can use any kind of light, or just have a transparent incubator and use sunlight.

Just make sure not to use black lights since the UV light causes the mushrooms to mutate.

I read some place that ordinary room light works well as long as you can read by it. although I am not too sure because I have my cakes in an aquarium with just the light coming through the window on the other side of the room and they have been there for almost 2 weeks and are barely even pinning.

I use the good ol' natural source. The sun. not direct though.. not even close to direct. In fact I leave enough light on them so I can just see them. But then again I have my whole set up in a 3 foot by 2 foot trunk that I can open and close at will.. it wasn't a bad investment at all...
