But don't get caught - don't get hooked - don't get attracted by the thing you're building, cause... you gotta drop out again. It's a cycle. Turn on, tune in, drop out. Keep it going, keep it going- the nervous system works that way. gotta keep it flowing- keep it flowing.

The term "birthing" is normally used when one means to say ..."my cakes or bulk sub\cased is 100% colonized and ready to begin pinning " To initiate pinning we expose to light and make sure c02 levels are kept to a min of aprox 2000 parts per million (via fanning or automated air exchange), and moisture is kept at max(misting and or humidification system) .
So yes if you are initiating pinning give them a min of 8 hrs a day of light on up to the reccomended 12 hrs a day of light .
The reason for light is mainly so mushies know it is time to grow mushies and which way to grow .... UP .

If still in colonization stage keep in the dark .
Fill in the blanks guys is I missed a point .

Does this make sense and help , I hope so
Good Luck

He is probablly listening to old wives tale that mushies grow in the dark  :wink:
They do need their rest period in the dark , that is why most say 12 on 12 off , I believe 8-10 is plenty and saves on electric bills  :thumbup:

That should suffice, But if you really want to get techinical, You can get a REAL blue light from a fishing store, It produces like a bunch of nano somethings, (blue spectrum) and gives it that extra TLC.

But i just looked over what you said,lol, That sounds Perfect :laugh:

Might want a lower wattage, but that's just me, I think that it will do great :laugh:

Theyre called actinic bulbs.  The wavelength of the light spikes at 420nm (nanometers) which is what spectrum of the light that supposedly reaches corals at a certain depth in the sea.  I never really thought about using one for some mushies, my fruiting chamber is about 10ft away from my reef tank which I leave an actinic bulb on most of the night, I still think the growth spurts that I see happen in complete darkness tho.  Now I'm kinda thinking about getting a low wattage powercompact off a nanocube or something and seeing what happens on a separate fruiting chamber.  Good idea.
