A lighting question
    #3475253 - 12/10/04 10:38 AM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Ok now as fas as lighting goes i was told 12/12 until there is a nice pinset and then you should drop the lights to about 6/18. My question is after the flush is over is it ideal to put the lights back at 12/12 until a new pinset forms? I guess it would make sence but how much would it help if any? Thanks

nice =) Its just that i notice a larger growth difference after theyve been in the dark compared to the day time. 6 more hours of dark for those days can do alot I am assuming but well thats why this post be here. For me to find out. thanks for input

A Growlux? Like a HID bulb?

What kind of light would be best. Definetly not a high power ligth like for growing herb. I ave heard indirect sunlight is enough, and they need little to no light. Does havign a system like 12/12 or 18/6 matter? If so how long do you do it for? And when do you start, when you birth the cakes?

Indirect light is enough..I use compact flouros myself and havent heard of anyone using HID bulbs for mushrooms really so thats why I asked if thats the Growlux he means..12-18 hours a day for pinset then as little light as possible once pinning and growing just to make them grow up. IME they grow bigger in the dark but need lots of light initially for a good pinset. Start when you birth the cakes..all three pinning triggers should hit at once.
