photographer's dark room light... for incubation viewing?
    #4226089 - 05/27/05 01:02 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

Is there any type of light that mych can sit in constantly.. or atleast for extended periods of time without causing pinning? I was thinking that maybe a darkroom light would be good... would that work? any other lights?

im still working on getting my first cake to fully colonize :P
if i get good enough to spare some jars i will definately try it. it would be pretty damn cool to have a little "dark room" where you can view your mych and do all the work on it you want.

Dark rooms arent dark (in terms of photography)

No. It wont work.

And i'm not sure but i think they use red light in dark rooms, isn't that close to black light?...Which causes mutes?

no infra red and ultra violet are different section of the spectrom. Just a red light so the waves are longer and are less likely to damage the photographs. anyways exposeing your myc to light a few times a day wont be to bad. your still missing the two other triggers for pinning

the blues are what is supposed to induce pinning.. so i figured there has to be come visible spectrum that wont induce pinning

uh.. opposite ends of the spectrum man. but i did not know that blacklights cause mutes.. that would be cool to play with

i read a post on here where someone used a darkroom to fruit in and it worked. anyways why do you need to look at the for days at a time. a few hours a day is not gonna start invitro right away. that takes a couple weeks of light exposre

i think your estimates are a bit high.. but to answer your question: simply to see if i can. The ability to have a visible spectrum light that does not induce pinning could be useful for some things i would imagine.

For whatever reason you need so much light on the cakes, use a red spectrum light. Blue and white are the best for pinning. You shouldnt have to worry about pinning anyway. The mycelium still needs other things to happen to cause pinning (light, lower co2 levels, and temp drop), as long as they are in the jars still, it shouldnt be a problem no matter what light you use.

TMC, page 147

"Ideally a fully colonized substrate should be incubated in total darkness and exposed to light only after mycelium first shows through the casing layer. If the cultivator wants to check the culture without the chance of premature pinning, red light is recommended."

why worry so much about light reaching the myc. This only happened becasue it was recieving 14 hours of light per day

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

I just leave the jars and petri dishes on an open shelf in a normal room, so they get light everyday from day one. That way when I need to look at something, I just pick it up and look at it. There is no need to keep jars in the dark. That is a myth that has held over from the agaricus growers. It's very rare for a strain to pin prior to full colonization, but it does happen from time to time. No need to worry though, if you're building casings or doing grain to grain transfers, simply dump the grains and pins right into the casing or next jar of grains. The mushrooms from within a sterile jar are also sterile. Since fruits are mycelium, they clone right into the grains and don't contaminate. I've done this many times.

Also, blue light does not cause pinning. What stamets and others have found is that a light rich in the blue spectrum will tend to help give a 'better' pinset. Cultivators who have grown mushies in the same room with their garden and exposed the mushrooms to light from a MH lamp know they get somewhat better pinsets then they get with incadescent or fluorescent fixtures.

I have a jar that is pinning an its not fully colonized. The myc stretches over but very lil, you can still see the substrate. Its pinning like crazy and i have another jar doing the same. Think its the strain or contam.? If its the strain is it worth saving?

Im new to this so try and bear with me...
