A regular 18" white plant fluorescent-bulb should work fine, ay?

Long as its not to hot and doesnt put off UV light, any bulb works fine.

Dont incandescents put off UV though? Cant remember..

It's only a small light. No UV @ all? It's designed for plants or aq, so I would imagine that it's got a bit of UV in it, but I'm no electrician, nor biologist for that matter.

Direct UV isnt good. Not that it wouldnt work, but you could open yourself up to mutations (one of which includes after a few generations, mushrooms that produce no spores causing you to start over again). Thats why you dont want DIRECT sunlight...though indirect sunlight (or light from that I'm sure) work perfect since UV is quickly absorbed. This bulb would probably work, but I've been afraid of any UV light since PF's mushrooms stopped producing spores after using a blacklight for a few generations.

i would say that it would be okay. i don't see why it would cause a problem as long as there is no direct light hitting it. what i would do is put the light across the room and reflect the light towards the mushrooms and that should work fine
