Lighting

K, I got my cased tubs in a POORMAN'S POD (used lavarock instead of geolite). I put a full spectrum light on the lid. I hooked up the light to a timer that runs for roughgly 6 hours. Will that be enought light per day for pinning?

yea it will work, but i use 12-16 hours to initiate pinning, despite wut others say... think about it.. you're trying to simulate nature inside your pod...nature gives more than 6 hours but 6 will work fine.. if you have a multi setting timer...split your time up evenly between the day to give em a lil' rest after pinning, i do 1 hour every 4 hours of the day.. thats 6 hours total..

In the dawn my toes are cold They spread their little trinkets on the ground In the hall By the closet door They creep into my bed without sound On a cube In a plastic egg A hundred fabric figures in a pile See them march Toward me And dance across the floor trippily Little faces keep no track of time Little faces speaking out in rhyme Little faces smiling in my mind Tiny doors For walking through sticky fingers clutch forbidden things the phone For talking through Sinking ships On a foamy sea That tumbles from the motion of filthy Little hands In the dark When eyes are wide listen to secrets that I tell In a ball On tiny beds Or beneath them where the shadow people dwell moon Beams split the night Leave bars of yellow pasted on their faces As they drift into a dream

I use 12 hours to start pinning, then I switch to around 8.

kramer has used as little as 2 hrs light before with good results
with proper gas exchange and perfect temps only the smallest amount of light is needed to tell our friends which way to grow :crazy2:

at least thats what kramer says

It will work but I like more.

Here is a poorman's pod with a pvc lightstand that I made.

kramer says he likes a 12/12 best
the 2 hour thing was when he was growing in an old freezer out in the garage at uncle lazlo's house.
the light was warming the project too much so he had to cut it back.
i here he just uses sunlight these days :cool:

12 on and 12 off should be fine (haha,just like forcing a marijuana plant to flower).Or 8 on 8 off 8 on.All they need the light for is to tell them which direction to grow.Mushrooms don't make food from light/photosynthesis like plants.
