how much light?
    #3778415 - 02/14/05 01:31 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

For growing purposes? I've heard from different tutorials that it is a minimum amount of shade through a window to prolonged 12-on/12-off light cycles? So how much light?

12 on, 12 off works great to induce pinning.

You will be fine with a minimum of 5 hours a day. Shrooms doesn't get energy from light so they don't will grow faster if you give them more light.

To induce pinning 12/12, once you have even pinning, reduce to 10light/14dark. It appears to me, they grow more during the DARK cycle.

Stick as close to NATURE, as possible. 24 H light is not.

Lack of light leads to tall spindly shrooms & small caps.
