simple pf tek question
    #955997 - 10/13/02 01:12 AM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Hey guys.. tried searching for this, and had no luck so I apologize if its been asked before..

I just innoculated 10 jars (5 b+, 5 "tasmanian", all from mycofanatic).. The question is how much light should these jars get now? I have them in a cabinet that will get almost no light at all, should I be exposing them to indirect light, or in darkness until I see sporocaps? Thanks :smile:

J

Incubate in darkness. Expose to light when you want to initiate pinheads.

Thank you both for the (amazingly!) quick replies.. After reading a few posts down, I found the same answer.. sorry!

I'll past the info below for those who end up searching for the same things I did..

From Moe Howard

straight from the FAQ

Mushrooms are not plants, so they do not require the type and amount of light to grow like plants do.
Colonizing substrate should be kept in a dark place to make sure the substrate doesn't pin prematurely.
But, fully colonized substrate should be introduced to light to initiate pinning - light "tells" the substrate that the conditions are right for forming fruit bodies.
Only a dim light is needed , anything too bright or warm will harm the cakes. A fluorescent lamp or indirect sunlight is plenty of light. But basicaly any kind of visible light will do. A few hours of light per day is all that is needed, 10 hours is probably a overkill.
A source with a wide spectrum of light, especially containing lots of bluish light (natural daylight or white fluorescent lights are very good examples of light with lots of blue) is best, but a low wattage incandescent light (25 watts is plenty) not too close to the terrarium will work well too. Also the use of x-mass lights has been
