Re: The amount of light needed for pinning!
    #73610 - 02/06/00 04:00 PM (22 years, 7 months ago)

You know, Mycelium, I've taken everyone's advice about cubensis not needing much light and only for a second or two a day... a friend had his terrarium in the corner of the room, getting light about 18 hours of the day but not directly and kind of from one direction...

The shrooms formed fine except that they grew in the direction of the light almost exclusively. I mean, cakes would pin and produce fruits on the side of the cake facing the light source almost exclusively, save for a few small mushrooms on the "dark side".

So I've decided that, while I don't feel it's necessary have hours of exposure, you definitely want the light to come from directly *above*.

Just a thought that was kind of related, didn't deserve an entire post.

Mycelium, that sounds like that even cameras flashlights are good enough to initiate pinning! The spectrum is blueish, so fluorescents seems to be better from this side. Definitely worth to check it, and flash the surface for several times a day. Sounds cool, and energy-consume is minimal.
