Indoor light??
    #510337 - 01/04/02 07:32 PM (16 years, 1 month ago)

Does it matter what kind of light source the shrooms get? Is halogen OK?
What is meant by "indirect light?" (I know its a dumb question, but I just getting started, please bear with me.)
How far away from the cakes should a halogen heat lamp be to provide needed heat, yet not over-illuminate?
My environment is normally about 68 deg., so I need an extra 15-25 deg. of heat.
Also, what size light (in watts) is best for me?

Mushrooms are not like plants, they recieve little benifit from light. Mostly, just a direction in which to grow.

If you are using a large light as a heat source, you will likely encounter humidity problems.

Light that comes in through the window and lights up your room would be 'indirect light'.
