Too much light can only be too bad if the light is to close or so strong as to heat the casing or cake surface. i'm certain normal room lighting causes no adverse affects, no matter how long its on.

Not if they are black lights.

I believe a white flouro light or an actual grow light with high blue spectrum would be best.

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?

Does the coloring on a clear bulb really do much to the spectrum? I've always kinda wondered that.

Colored clear bulbs dont work better, they block out alot of the spectrum and you might not get the right ones even if its a blue tint (which purple is lower on the spectrum them purple and worse for mushrooms then white).

A little bit of light during the dark doesn't hurt like with plants..they arent photosynthetic like plants and only need the light to trigger them to start growing (about 12 hours per day) and then once pinned only need enough light per day to make them grow up (1-4 hours)

too much light isnt bad but light for too long is bad. after pinning limit light as scat said to 1-4 hrs tops.
