which is more important in fruiting temperature or lighting ?

Quick question to all you shroom vets,
Which is more important in fruiting...temperature or lighting ?

I'm in a situation on a current grow where I can obtain ideal temps...low 70's but with very little lighting....maybe 20 minutes to 45 minutes a day....or I can do 5 - 7 hours of lighting a day, but at a temp of 80 - 87 degrees.

I'm leaning towards the lower temp - less light option, but would like to here some advice from some seasoned vets.

Thanks in advance !

You don't need much light, so I guess that's your answer. :wink:

Yup, definately the temps!
Minimal light is fine.

Thanks for the help ! ...I thought temp was more important but just wanted some assurance. I will definately go with the optimal temp - less light choice.

Thanks !

Try to replicate nature as much as possible. It's far more likely in nature that temps will rise and/or fall(due to rain or weather fronts) than light only coming about for 45 minutes per day. If you can get your temp to about 80 then go with that and keep the lights on as long as you can(til you get to about 12/12 or 8/16) to get a better pinset. Light will cause more pins than temp will, unless your temp is way outside the lines. I have had fruiting temps of 82 with a 12/12 cycle and got great results.
