Color Light?
    #437432 - 10/26/01 07:21 AM (16 years, 30 days ago)

I was wondering if light in the blue end of the spectrum really makes that huge of a difference in the growth rate or size of the little buggers. I've heard that alot, and I was just wondering if it was true.

'Cause I'm going to buy a heater today and was wondering if while I'm there I should just get a blue fluorescent light.

It'll be around 4-5 bucks... Worth the price for the benefit?

thanks for the help,
abudiwa

Any light will initiate pinning, but studies show blue spectrum enhances it. Buy a deluxe cool white, usually rated at 6500k.

Currently I am using a fluorescent light.

That will work good enough?

thanks

I just didn't want to spend the money if it didn't drastically increase the robustness of the mushrooms and yield.

6500k deluxe cool white fluoros cost the same.

Lay a couple of two foot flourescents atop your terrarium, and you won't need that heater.

I can't do that when I'm keeping my project away from my roommates.

I'm ok with spending the money, if it doesn't draw attention to itself.

I've tried the blue light and didn't notice anything different. I wouldn't spend too much mney on a fancy lighting system, they are not pot plants and recieve virtually nothing from light other than a direction to grow in.

In nature, the mycellium is under ground or under dung and does not recieve any light at all. Only when the mushroom has already formed and grows big enough to break the surface, does it finally recieve light.

Likewise, jars colonized under light 24/7 rarly pin before full colonization. These are my observations over several years. I see no indication that light promotes pinning.

I have also picked different species of mushroom that grew underground fully without ever having been exposed to light.
