Lighting Q?
    #4578196 - 08/25/05 11:05 AM (11 years, 5 months ago)

Hey all, is it ok to have light on 24hrs? Got a red light bulb in my FC for heat but worried it might cause issues.
Thanks

Shrooms need dark this is when they grow the most. Blue light would work much better for pinning BTW. Remember you don't want heat during fruiting unless your FC is in the lower 60's (74-77F. is optimum).

Well there ya go optimize! :wink: They will of course need light to pin and fruit properly (optimally), but no direct sun light. GL
