How important is a stable light period
    #4386520 - 07/09/05 12:32 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)


Ive just stuck my first casing into my PIMP :P however i dont want to set the lil fluro up on a timer cos quite often i will need need to turn it off earlier or later dependin on what other individulas i may have over and who could notice some light penetration, is it really that important to have a regualar 12/12 or as long as its getin around 12hrs of light every 24 will this be satisfactory?

You'll be fine...I dont know how important it is exactly, there may be no difference, and there may be one, but if so..its slight. Some people only use 30 minutes of light a day and get "results", if your lights on for a few hours every now and then they'll see plenty..they dont use light for making food or anything like that, just to know theyre above ground.

I see a lot of mushrooms growing in the wild where they couldn't possibly get more than an hour or two of light, like in caves.. Right now, there's a casing in my basement that's fruiting, and all it ever gets is ambient basement light.
