Does light color matter?
    #4018590 - 04/05/05 08:34 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I have read on many sites that mushrooms like blue light the best. Is this true. I have also heard that led's are the best form of light, but are unpracticle because they are so small. I was wondering because I am getting ready to make a bigger fruiting chamber and am going to have to buy a new light.

Blue and ultraviolet light in the range of 350-500 nanometers, which include household lights, flourescent, etc. are most effective. Anything over 500 nm such as infra-red, green, red, etc.. are not practical in getting cubensis primordia to form.
