A simple question about light
    #747618 - 07/15/02 10:45 AM (16 years, 2 months ago)

I recently birthed my first successful substrate cakes, but I've been wondering about light. Now, I understand that light, when growing mushies, is not the most important factor. However, I'm worried that I may be over doing it. I keep my grow space in my closet during the dark hours. But, when I give it light, I take it out of the closet and simply leave the light (a 90w bulb) to my room on for six or more hours. My question is: Is this TOO much light? The temp. within the grow space is where it should be, so, I know that my room light doesn't affect the temp. in the grow space by that much, if at all. After all, the light is a good distance away from my cakes. I'm just wondering if my light is too bright, or if I am exposing my cakes for too long a period.

Thanks for your patience in reading this. I'd really like to hear your advice.
