During incubation: Is halogen light OK to use for heat source?
    #4623217 - 09/05/05 06:42 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

I read a little about using some light during incubation of MMGG Tek 1/2 pint jars, but there doesn't seem to be anything definitive about the effect of using light 24 hours a day to generate incubation heat.

I'm currently using an aquarium heater in water to generate heat to 80 degrees, but would like it to be around 84 degrees or so (and to have the heat more regular throughout my large container.

So my basic questions are:

1) Does light hurt the incubation process?
2) Would it prematurely initiate pinning/fruiting?
3) Would it allow photosynthetic contams an added boost?
4) Would it have any positive effects?

Or should I just buy another aquarium heater and use another heat source?

Thanks for your help in advance.

1 yes it can hurt it cause it can trigger the mycelium to pin so it will stop trying to grow.
2 yes if it gets light to the mycelium
3 i dont know but i would say maybe
4 not for incubating
