What type of light should I use for fruiting chamber?
    #3976988 - 03/27/05 08:02 PM (11 years, 8 months ago)

I was wondering what type of light I should buy for my fruiting chamber. From what I read, you want a light that is in the blue spectrum. Are most fluorescent lights in this spectrum? I have already put a few hundred dollars into this project in my attempt to achieve perfection. I really dont want to have to buy an overpriced grow lamp though.

About any light will work. Shrooms don't photosynthisize. Light is just triggers pinning & the direction to grow.

You want to think about the HEAT a light creates & the space they take up.

old agar simply uses a couple golf ball size clear Cristmass type bulbs. Compact, small watt, cheap & easy to install.

I was thinking about one of those small fluorescent desk type lamps.

I use a 7 watt night light from a dollar store. There are 2 little slots cut into the lid of my tub. They are just the right size for the prongs of the plug to pass through from the inside. The prongs are plugged into a light extension cord.



Before I plugged it in I unscrewed the bulb and sprayed it and the rest with oil. It's been working for months.

Well, there aren't any coils, not that it matters. Every now and then I take it apart and look for corrosion. Water really isn't a very good conductor, but metal salts and oxides are.

One day I might find out that it won't work forever. It could end up melting a hole in the lid. My point was that you don't need much light. Just enough to trigger pinning, and that's not much.
