How much light does a fruit need?
    #751553 - 07/16/02 04:54 PM (21 years, 7 months ago)

In a continuing effort to abide by a modest budget, a pod was not purchased...Could the blue translucent rubbermaid bins w/ the blue opaque lids, as sold by Walmart, be used as fruiting chambers? Any advice is greatly appreciated. And the thing about blue x-mass lights can't be too serious can it?

IMO don't waste the money. 1 minute of light a day is more than enough.

Shrooms only need light to tell them where "up" is.

I was thinkin' about making a water-heated fruiting chamber w/ the two bins, jars, etc., and was wondering A. if this would work, and if so B. would enough light permeate both bins. One could get 12 natural light.

I have given cakes light just once as an experiment and they all grew up to where the light was the 1 time they seen it.

Well, first of all, a fruiting chamber doesn't need to be heated (unless the room temperature is below 71F).

Second, as I said above, you only need a breif moment of light per day or LESS.

oops! Im sure Tripmeister realised that primordia of psilocybe cubensis require light to form - no light no pins. Once they are fruiting however he's statement is correct.

I`ve just noticed by increasing my light to atleast 9 hours on the babies have started fruiting.
Maybe some other conditions came into it but I just reasently upped the light to see if it would take effect and it deffinatelly did.

Actually, what I said applies to mycelium as well. It'll pin w/1 minute a day.

Stamets recomends for promordia formation and cropping:

Light: Diffuse natural or exposure for 12-16 hours/day of grow-lux type fluorescent light high in blue spectra at the 480 nanometer wavelength.

..or they THINK they know better than a professional mycologist.

But what if someone qouted from Stamets and someone else didn't agree? Would that give a person the right to slander the qouter? Wouildn't the argument be better taken up with Stamets?

Also, I've never seen cubensis in it's natural state but how wonder how much light the mycellium recieves when it is underground or in the dung. I figure those pins start in complete darkness and recieve light only after they break the soil as young mushrooms.

'..or they THINK they know better than a professional mycologist.'
Your fucking head is on back-the-front Max! Your post makes no sense - how can someone disagree with this quote - it is in obvious context.
You obviously havent seen cubensis fruit in its natural environment because when you find gold-tops - such as those wollongong of yours who were picked originally by a friend - you always find rhizos poping out of the manure pile.
The rhizos penetrate the dung, reach a point where they break the surface of the manure, and respond to the sudden light and air-exchange by fruiting.
Go back and grow some more of your coneheads - which im sure we will all one day see....one day

and if your suggesting that it is I who thinks they know better than a professional mycologist (being Stamets) then yeah - heres one for you.
Stamets quotes Cleland and Guzman as suggesting that Psilocybe Subaeruginosa has brown pigmented pluerocystidia - i know someone who has examined some of the original specimens that both Guzman and Cleland worked with when defining this species and they have hyaline pleurocystidia.
Stamets also suggests that Australiana is a mildly potent species - again not true as he suggests that Subaeruginosa is highly potent when in fact Australiana tends to be the same potency as Subaeruginosa.

You need very little light, just a tiny bit (anykind) to tell them to grow up and not squiggle everwhere.
