growing in a dark, closed place?
    #831805 - 08/21/02 01:51 AM (15 years, 9 months ago)

Hi!
I was reading the "Growing P. Cubensis on sterilized rye grain" guide from mushmush.nl, and i wanted to ask if it was possible to let the jars colonise and the mushroom bodies grow, all in a dark and closed place, like a cupboard or a closet?
As far as I know, mushrooms don't need light (as they don't do photosynthesis, they aren't green, right?) and most of the professional (edible) mushroom growing is actually done in complete darkness...
Well, I'm asking because some people might be surprised seeing mushrooms growing openly in some case at my place....
Thanks in advance,
~osmosis

well indeed shrooms are no plants, so light is needed for 2 purposes only:

a) to start the mushroom cycle
b) to know where to grow to

so you can do it in a cupboard as long as you do have inside a small lamp
on the top. otherwise, you will have strange shaped shrooms or even worse,
shrooms will turn like hell to the inside of your casing...

ok, thanks.
as for the "mushroom cycle" - what is that? do they need a special configuration of light/darkness cycles, like cannabis? (i mean, like, 12 hours light, 12 hours dark, or somethign like that..)

no you dont actually need a schedule for lighting. a few hours per day is cool. a small lamp is okee, just to let them know which way is up
