Best artificial lighting and black lights?
    #4318787 - 06/20/05 11:36 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hello shroomery,
I searched for this everywhere with little results. I am wondering will a 15w black light work for growing mushrooms? The guy I bought the kit off told me to buy a uv light and use it so it kills all bacteria. What kind of light should I use and for how many hours a day?
Thanks ahead of time!!

They guy you bought the kit off of is an idiot. Use a regular light, not a blacklight and forget the crap about killing things. A flouescent works best IMO, but a regular bulk works too. Indirect sunlight works well too..

12 hours of light a day.

If you use anything with UV light, the mushrooms with deform. At least with a higher concentration than normal of uv light.
