Beginners questions...please help
    #4580825 - 08/25/05 08:07 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

hi, this is my first time growing shrooms and i have a few generic questions that i could not find answers for on the forums. first off

when do the jars or mixture need to be exposed to light?
what sort of light? (sun light, house light, etc)

insted of leaving the cakes in standard form, can u spread the cake out to get more surface area? or do you have to leave it in cake form?

cheers

In nature, sunlight tells the wee mycelium that it's reached the surface and is time to start pinning. You want just enough light to read a book. Sunlight is good IMO, but not directly.You can use regular interior lighting. If you dont want to fruit as a cake, then do a casing. That simple. Casings give more fruits, but cakes are koool to watch, IMO.

ok first the jars dont need light until they are in the fruiting chamber(after 100% colonization) while incubating they need to be in a dark warm spot(76-86f) most like 86f when they are 100% colonized and in the fruiting chamber they need a 10 degree drop in temp to start pinning so around 76f they need 12 hours of light a day as well as 12 hours of darkness(12on 12off)most any light will work most people here seem to prefer florescent though...and yes you can spread the cakes out for more surface...just do a search on casing teks..hope that helps:)

"The answer is never the answer. What's really interesting is the mystery. If you seek the mystery instead of the answer, you'll always be seeking. I've never seen anybody really find the answer-- they think they have, so they stop thinking. But the job is to seek mystery, evoke mystery, plant a garden in which strange plants grow and mysteries bloom. The need for mystery is greater than the need for an answer."
