LC and light
    #4385473 - 07/09/05 12:30 AM (11 years, 6 months ago)

My mates testing out vanilla extract for LC, but has only one chamber and its the fruiting chamber at the moment so he just chucked the LC jar in their.

I know the temp of the fruiting chamber is a bit lower then whats recomended for myc growth but no biggie because theres no rush, what i want to know is since the LC is in the fruiting chamber its getting light to, obviously the LC wont pin (duh) but could the light have any negative effects or it doesnt matter with LC? thanks.

interesting question. im guessing that it can hurt it still. the light could cause a pinning trigger and the mycelium might think its time to fruit and slow down on mycelium production. but i really dont know.

It will work either way. But, IMHO.... you get quicker - healthier growth - incubating in darkness. I have pull 6 month old LC's out of the fridge, exposed them to light & room temps for a purpose.

That being, to allow some myc to start growing on the LC surface, to see if by chance - it had contaminated. If the surface growth is WHITE, it is good to go. If not.... well...you know.. :thumbdown:

Turn to page 34 "The Mushroom Cultivator" by Paul Stamets. If you don't have this book then you must be spanked. Keep em in darkness.
