Yet another lighting question
    #3321610 - 11/04/04 09:40 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

OK so shrooms need only need light to know which way to grow, so if i just used a 60 watt light bulb in my closet would that have the same effects as natural sunlight.

That light is probably bigger than what most of us use. :wink: 

Keep an eye on that temperature in the closet for awhile. 60W isn't really that much... but your closet could be tiny. :wink:

Good luck

i use a small mini flourescent(sp) bulb.  the mushrooms tend to grow straight toward where the bulb is.  the way i have it set up it looks like they are bowing slightly to the center mushroom :smile:

You only need 15-20 watts for most any grow if that. Compact flouros work best though.
