just wondering about light and fruiting ...
    #3603814 - 01/09/05 04:17 PM (12 years, 15 days ago)

i was browsing the threads and saw a fruiting chamber that seemed to have a rather strong light and used to produce lots of thin and long shrooms ...
so my question is :
does the thickness of fruits depend in any way on the light power ?

please share your experience, opinion, ...
thanks !

Insufficient light intensity can induce stretch in phototropic mushrooms (fact #1). Also what you described can also be contributed to too high of CO2 levels during fruitbody maturation long skinny stems with small caps (fact #2) and is more than likely the culprit in this case.

thats hard to say, I've had good results from 25watt bulbs and compact
fluorescents, the fluorescents are my recomendation, because they put
off more light per watt and less heat
