What should I do??? (Experts Only Please)
    #649236 - 05/28/02 07:28 AM (21 years, 10 months ago)

I got some good responces from you guys, here is my only question that still stands....

What do I do with the light? 30 Watt Flouro, How much light should i be giving them..

Some people said 6 hours, some said give them "some light", some said DO NOT do 24 hours of light..

I am very confused... I just want them to PIN!!!!!!!

I thougth you were supposed to give 24 hours of light and 95% humidity for pinning to occur, then lower it to 12/12 Lighting, and about 85% humidity...

I read all the FAQ's and I am still confused

For those of you who dont know my situation here:

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Here is the problem... Very simple

I am a newbie and didnt know, i placed the casing directly into the terranium

I DID NOT cover with foil and let sit
The casing has been in the terranium for 2 days now I already see mycelium growth.

-Its been at a constant 95% humidity, and about 82F the entire time..(2 days so far)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Sorry to bother you all soo much, but i really want them to grow!!!!

Happy Shrooming

if it were up to me i would ony give them 12 hours of light a day. and once you see some little guys, and lots of pins, then i would give it only 6 hours of light a day, this decrease in light helps make some bigger fruits.

you can pretty much keep light on them 24/7 through pinning. it is important that you drop the temps to the mid 70s else you will continue to have mycel growth and no pins.

i use blue rubbermaid containers that have had a big rectangle cut in the top and covered with 3 layers of reynolds wrap using duct tape. My room faces east so i get the morning sun. In the morning, I just unstack my boxes and places them in front of the window after fanning. At lunch, I fan them again and stack them against the wall. Before I go to bed, I fan them and stack them in the closet so "company" cant see them. Just find a good pattern and stick to it. After a couple of months, it just becomes habit.

Ok, Here is where i am at I think I understand...

The step i skipped is where all the mycelium is supposed to start to grow... (In the valleys) Your supposed to keep them at about 80-82F
95% Humidity, and lets just say 12/12 of light

Then once the mycelium starts to poke through the casing, I start to initiate the Pinning, this ocurs when you drop the TEMP to about 70F, and keep the RH around 90's, and give sufficient light.

Once the pinning occurs what do i do with the Temp/Humidity.?

Thank you all sooooooooooooooooooooo much, ireally realyl appreciate all your help!!!!

I'd do a little more reading if I was you.

You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity by legislating the wealthy out of prosperity. What one person receives without working for another person must work for without receiving. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for that my dear friend is the beginning of the end of any nation. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. ~ Adrian Rogers

Youve just way over complicated everything.... just cover them for a few days when you FIRST case, 5-6 days later patch and re-cover 3 days later take off the foil and start fanning your terr. The little light you get from the fanning will be more then sufficiant.

Use initial 5-6 hours light to inititate pinning and then drop it to less if need be.
They grow better in darkness with only light to give direction.

If worse comes to worse cool them to a reasonable temp. to cold shock the suckers.

Is there any edvidence that light effects pinning?

My understanding is that it's used for controling cobweb mold and to keep the 'shrooms growing upward (toward the light). My friends use it only for controlling gray/cobweb mold.


I feel that the 12 hours on then 12 hours off light scedual is based on pot grower's opinions... and feel that whats good for bud must be good for mushrooms (it isnt). The worst thing that I can see with 24 hour light on is it effecting the humidity/temps..drying the substrait.. etc... if it can be set up so this dosent happen 24 hour light should work.
