Re: Is light essential for growing shrooms?

I agree. Wile picking pine mushrooms commercially, I've dug them up out of the ground a foot down, fully developed and totally open without having ever seen the light of day. Light will keep them all growing straight up however and this solves one problem I've seen, and that is, mushrooms which grow sideways and them break off under thier own weight.

Also, any mushroom which grows off of underground mycelium is obviously in total darkness for those first few critical days when it is 'born' and grows into a shroom big enough to break the soil.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Some may disagree with me, but I say technically no. Mushrooms are photo responsive, but did not go through the process of photosynthesis,(I'll assume you at least paid partial attention in Biology). Photo responsive means they will grow toward the light if it is present.

Although I only grow legal types of mushrooms now and I use a regular old fluroscent, I grew the PF strain for almost 2 years without a light inside a black rubbermaid container. My shrooms grew in every direction and often straight down into the perilite, which caused a few problems but not all that many. Some light will add extra heat, which may or may not be bad.

But I would say no, because I have done it, but I will add the only strain I ever grew without a light was the PF strain.

Thanks you guys.

Since I really don't want my shrooms to grow underground (in cake) I guess i'll use light.

My question now is what type of light and for how long each day? If I grew them in my closet and opened the door for so long each day would that be good enough?
