Question about lighting
    #4740451 - 10/01/05 11:23 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

So I am about to attempt a home mushroom cultivation project in some drawers in my house. I realize mushrooms need light to fruit, and I was wondering if some Christmas lights or something of that nature inside of the drawers would suffice. Do mushrooms need natural light? Can you over-light them? Thanks a lot!

Christmas tree lights will work, as will indirect natural daylight. Low temp, low watt flouros are the best to use. It really takes a minimal amount of lighting to get these guys to pin, but just be careful that your lights don't cause a huge temperature fluctuation and cause your grow to overheat on you. Good luck.

You can get away with an hour. I like to do about 16 hours of light a day until I see pins and then cut that down to about 6 hours a day. :2cents:
