I just need confirmation (closure? :smile: ) on the light issue while incubating.

PF tek for simple minds says...

" Don't expose the jars to direct sunlight. Indirect sunlight (= the light that lights up a room because it's day time out) or a low wattage lamp(cool white fluorescent lamp is ideal, incandescent lamp is less suitable) for 4-12 hours a day is sufficient."

This is while incubating (still in the jars)

Of course, with light, he gets this...


Which he suggests is good and a good indication on when to birth the cake.

This will be for pf tek jars, but should i decide to case a cake or two..do i need to get rid of these tiny mushrooms?

Or should I just keep them out of the light all together until ready to birth(fully colonized?) ?

I have read almost every tek on this site that involves growing mushrooms in jars..cant think of any that really said clearly about light it seems.

Anyways, could someone clear this up for me? I will probably turn all  the jars into just normal jars except for 1-2 which i might case as an experiment (not too worried about these)

Light stimulates growth, so if you want to grow "invirto", which means to let the cakes pin inside the jar and then birth in a terrarium (leaving the pins on), then let the jars be exposed light when theyre done colonizing.

afoaf doesnt usually do it that way though. he usually trys to keep the jars out of light until he births them in a terrarium, and then let them pin.

EDIT- He does it that way because it gives bigger/better flushes.
