lighting question
    #3008363 - 08/16/04 10:31 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

I know that light is required to trigger a hormonal response to tell the mushroom which way to grow, but how much light? I have two florecents. How far should I set them from the terrarium?

indirect light is all you need. it only takes 15 mins of light a day but a few hours is fine.

The lights should just be able to get inside the terrarium.  Any height is good, as long as it is not so close that it raises the temperature in the terrarium.  Chances are if you can read in the light you are giving your babies, they're fine.  They only need light to direct them which way to go.
