If that's all you gost, then that's all you gost. Goolag's right though, those bulbs can put out some real thermal radiation. You barely need any lumens at all to get the neccessary message to the mycelium and since the radiant heat from a close-by incandescent bulb can easily manipulate the temperature in a possibly negative manner, it's best to just stick with low wattage bulbs and be deliberate/functional with your light placement. If you can see your cakes/casings/cultures then there's enough light in the room for the shrooms to know what to do.

pc's only need a few nanoseconds a day to pin. so just put your light on a timer and let it on for a few minutes a day.
