BlackLights
    #3257285 - 10/20/04 07:13 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

I looked through the Teks and didn't see anything on Blacklighting. I found that with Cannibus the blacklight worked fine -- Do mushrooms just need the UV energyfrom the light, or do they need more colours of the spectrum?

Again, if this was answered in a tek and I missed it, sorry bout that -

mushrooms are not photosynthetic so they dont get energy from light. it is just a trigger to get them fruiting and growing in the right direction. Im not sure if black lights are good, but many say blue is good. I just hooked up a 25 watt blue bulb in my setup, we'll see how it does.

UV and shrooms are not a good combo!
Any substantial exposure like that of a blacklight will undoubtably cause you to have a bunch of mutated shrooms. Shrooms like the blue side of the spectrum for a trigger to initiate pinning,but they do not need light like plants do. They dont use photosynthesis and dont contain any chlorophyl so sunlight isnt necessary to promote healthy growth. Plenty of water and good clean carbohydrates pulled up from a nutritious substrate are key to healthy mushroom growth.
