Question on colonization.
    #3243497 - 10/11/04 04:34 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

This doesn't seem to be covered in the PF Tek instructions and there seems to be some conflicting stories in the forums. Should the jars see light while they are being colonized? Some say it won't hurt if they are exposed to light during this time and some say it will. What's the verdict?

Flashbacks are God's way of saying, "This one's on me".

I keep mine in the dark.

If you are planning on pinning invitro, introduce light.

Born: 10/31/83, which makes me a Scorpio.

1) Scorpios are the most highly sexed of all the signs of the zodiac.
2) Scorpios are prone to excesses: booze, drugs, sex, bad puns, etc.
They usually exploit the weaknesses of others, who fall victim to
their capacity for total lust & sexual abberation.
3) Scorpios possess great intellectual curiosity & creative talent. They
think they are rebels & are arrogant, proud, conceited, and worth every
penny of it.

What do you bring to the table?

If growing invitro (never take them out of the jars, mushrooms grow in the jars), give them light...if your taking it out though, dont give them light. A little light is ok (peeking at them once a day untill colonized) but exposing them to light on purpose is a bad idea (unless going invitro).

Growing with bags, start to finish (including my new grain and substrate prep)

you are right. There's been a lot of conflicting info. I think the verdict is you can expose them to light. It won't have big affect, but you will be taking away 1 of 4 pin inducing mechanisms.

In all reality, you have to take them out and check for contam. So, I think unless you are border lining other pinning strategies with danger, light isn't going to hurt the cultivation.
