Re: Sunlight is what initates pinning?

I think it has more to do with a slight temp drop such as night time might bring. The light just tells them which way to grow. The humidity gives them moisture and I believe the best temps are about mid to high 70's for fruiting and mid 80's for colonization.

Hope this helps!

If I were to give you what I think the number ONE pinning initiator is, I'd have to say it's nutrient limitation; that is, the mycelium completely colonizes the substrate so it begins to become more dense and eventually pins. Other factors contribute, but this is the number one for indoor-grown cubes (in my opinion). Now development of those pins to fully-grown fruiting bodies is another matter entirely.

I'm not totally sure but, I do believe that it depends on the type of shroom.

Some are phototropic: Need light to fruit and some need a change in temp!

I don't think any mushrooms need sunlight to fruit. Indeed, the mycelium in nature is underground for most species so the light wouldn't even reach baby shrooms until they pop up. Furthermore, mushrooms get there energy from host trees or organic matter, not sunlight like a plant. In fact, while picking pine mushrooms commercially, I've dug up huge fully grown specimens from a foot underground, having never seen the light of day.
But of course, thats just my opinion!
