A few newb questions for first batch
    #660423 - 06/03/02 11:49 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Hey guys, this is my first batch and I have a few questions:
1: Once my jars are fully colonized, do I need to wait a week before I birth the cakes?? Also, I've heard I need to expose them to light for that last week, is this true?
2: I'm planning on doing half casing, half cakes, I'll be using a Hydro-Pod for the cakes, but for the casings I was planning on using one of those rectangular plastic rubbermaid containers, with straight perlite (yeah, yeah, I know). I'm growing in my closet, which I keep closed, so I was planning on cutting the lid and putting a grow light in the top; So should I use a black light or a normal grow light?? Do I need to have the light only to initiate pinning, or keep it on during the whole fruiting cycle??

Thanks a lot for the help!

letting them in the jars for another week after colonization ensures that the inside is colonized ( i like to do it unless i am pressed for time). also, you dont need a grow light, it isnt a plant, just need to expose it to some light to innitiate pinning. i think in TMC Stamets wrote that shrooms pinned with only a few nanoseconds of light each day. anywho... just let them get some in direct light.
