this is the first time ive done this, and the guide im following doesnt specify if you need a certain kind of light to make the myc start fruiting. can i use regular 60 watt light bulbs? or should i use a lower wattage? also, does the lid have to stay on the bin throughout the whole fruiting process?

1st you cut a square out of the lid and saran wrap it(i like the bluish saran wrap that they make). the light doesn't have to be blue if the saran wrap is!

I would cut a hole in the lid of the fruiting chamber and then use some caulk or glue to secure a piece of plexiglass over the hole.
Basically any normal light will work, although fluro won't puduce heat (this may be a good or a bad thing).
Also, you want to make sure that light is shinning onto the top of the cakes only. Then the shrooms know which way is up and you wont get any "fat-asses."

Not neon if you mean that...I was once told neon is bad. Most any blue light, or white light, will work. Perhaps the neon was just a no to me because my lights are actually in the chamber and the high humidity with neons is bad... LED's can work..I've heard of rope lights and christmas lights working too but those can put off more heat then LED's or compact flouros.
