switching light/dark hours
    #4104053 - 04/27/05 08:50 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

i have to pack my stuff up soon to move home for a few months, and i still have a casing going. right now its light from 12 pm to midnight and dark from midnight on...

i want to switch the times when it is light and dark. pins are just starting to show in the casing. would it hurt to leave light on it for 24 hours, than continue a normal 12/12 cycle?

or would it be better to leave in in darkness for 24 hours than continue the 12/12 cycle?

Lighting is not important. All that matters is that they get SOME light a day.

Mushrooms are not photosynthetic... they're phototropic. (Experts feel free to correct me if my terminology is inaccurate...)

What this means is they don't 'feed' off the light... they only need the light source so they know which way is up, so they can grow straight. You could have just an hour or two of light a day and they'd get by fine.
