Special light for pinhead formation??
    #648525 - 05/27/02 08:19 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

On page 147 of the Mushroom Cultivator it says that at wavelenghts of 370, 440 and 460 nanometers more pinheads formed as opposed to the other wavelenghts so would a light, such as this one that outputs this spectrum:



be worth it (for $30) to produce more pinheads or would the difference not be that noticeable?

Interesting point. Where would you buy a light that outputs those wavelengths?

I dont know if there has been that much experimentation (around here at least) with lighting.

I found the particular light mentioned in the post in a Pet store.
Apparantly this light is used for certain fish tanks.
Go to the link mentioned in the post for more info from the manufacturer.

hes right about blue lights working better, I have found that grow lights that are 120 watts( they have a bluish tent to them at an angle) do produce more pins.

Wouldn't a cake with more pins produce smaller mushrooms?
Or am I halucinating...
