light during fruiting
    #3340738 - 11/10/04 11:23 AM (13 years, 6 months ago)

so i'm trying to grow some cakes in Oregon...I mean, I have this friend who is growing in Oregon... anyhow, its the dreary time of year here so we don't get too much sunlight in the room. Is the regular over-head light ok or should I go out and buy a better grow light? thanks.

mushrooms don't grow on light. Please... no direct sun light to your babies. A 20W flouro is good enough. Even christmas lights work... so does your regular over head light work? Yes. But keep an eye on temp. I think you'll be using 40 or 60W bulb and it can add a bit of heat factor in.

good luck

well, i'm not putting a light directly over the container... its just sitting in a room that is farily dark. do i need to leave the regular light on during the day, or is the little bit of sunshine that comes in enough to show these guys which direction to grow?

If you can see them, it's good enough. Remember the any daylight is brighter than most 200W halogen.

Sam



those are 7w night lights.
