I have black heat lights on terrarium setup. I also give them natural light also. The lights are more for heat. I don't know if they are making a difference or not but it does'nt appear to be hurting them at all.

Blacklights give off a lot of harmful UV rays. If they can cause cancer in humans, it's probably safer just to use traditional lighting arrangements (natural sunlight or fluorescent light will do) with your mushrooms. Works fine for me.

Actually it is okay to use just about any kind of lighting with shrooms as long as it doesn't overheat them.

Shrooms are require to light cause they are phototropic and like to know what direction to grow in, and to know they are alive. They don't have light requirements for food or anything cause of course they do not perform photosynthesis.

If you all had read other posts on this subject you'd find that mushrooms react to the specific spectrum that blacklights release, use em', they work great.

Yeah, their phototropism responds well to UV light.
