Your going to get a ton of different opinions on this but The Mushroom Cultavator (AKA Mushroom growers bible) calls for 12-16 hours a day. I just stick with 14.

I leave my lights on like 14 hours a day since my terraniums are in my room=/

But they dont actually need the light just to show them a direction to grow so its all personal as long as they get some light your golden I recommend at least 2 hours of light though a day.

peace

you only need enough light, so that you can see the cakes, i suggest getting a transparent terran. and sitting it close to a window, and let the natural light cycle from the sun take over

well like its writen i think here in the shroomery guide, if you can see the cakes there is enough light. thats what its like with my terrariam. some of my damn shrooms grow completly horizontal out of the cake. Im saying "what the F!@# are you doing? grow upward man!"

I have a question. I have a plant lamp. the one that is used to mimic sunlight. im guessing mimic direct sunlight. is there anything wrong with using this. I read that normal ceiling lights, flourecent lights can be used.

I wouldn't reccomend putting the light too close to your cakes. Just have the light near your terrarium and leave it on for about 4-6 hours. Also, if you have a bulb that is closer to the blue side... use that. Mushrooms respond better to bluish light.
