few questions?
    #3600354 - 01/08/05 10:14 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

i have dunked and rolled 2 cakes...and placed them in my clear terranium on plastic lids with vermiculite...... with a perlite base in the bottom of the terranium...and a 1/4 inch of water....then i put them in my room and cranked up the heater....so now i'm gonna monitor it so its around 25degrees...and around 90-95% humidity.
but i still have some questions:
1) does it matter if there is light on in the room at odd times?(from my room lamp, or through the windows...cause my terranium is clear)

2) is 2 hrs of flors lighting the best idea?

3) my cakes haven;t started pinning yet....but i dunked/cold shocked...so this should trigger the pinning soon right...how many days does this normally take?

thanx!

if u have light from every direction shrooms will grow in every direction towards the light I put my light at 12/12

pinning is any where between 5 to 7 days maybe 2 weeks depends on if cake was all the way colonized

mushrooms dont' need light to grow like plants do. They just use light so they know that they have reached to pile of shit, and it is time to fruit. a few mins a day is enough. afoaf just uses a cheap aquarium light that is on a few hours a day.

i'd suggest 12/12. that's the standard procedure, and it's pretty close to nature.

you can get pinning with a few miliseconds of light, it's been proven, but i still think 12/12 is better.. there's a difference between something working, and something working well.

i'd suggest an opaque container with a lid where the middle is plexiglass (you have to do this yourself). clear plastic will work as well.

because the terranium is clear on the sides...and the lid is a pink opaque lid....will the room lights goin on and off cause problems for mush growth?
its a small compact flor...and isn;t very bright at all.
