I've noticed when our shrooms get a full days worth of sunlight they thrive. The light is like a magnet that the caps are drawn towards. What I'm wondering is if it is the UV or the IR in the sunlight that they respond to? The point is this, in the Winter months maybe a light would help and knowing the wavelength they like would help in which bulb to buy. I really want to stay away from electric technology as much as possible though. I suppose I'll have to do an experiment to find out unless one of you knows for sure.

Hi Nue... I think I can save you the trouble of experiments. Go to Light and pick two of the links at the top of the page. One to Stamet's Mushroom Cultivator (P. Cubensis Growth Parameters), I forget where the other link goes, but it's labeled down there and has additional spectrum info.

I figure shoot for a light source close to the specrum of sunlight, which florescents have, and incandecents do not. (sp.) Burn less juice too. I'd guess the UV though...
Dunno, personally, like ta leave mine in the dark most of the time of the time. I've wondered from the git-go what, if any, the prime cycle of light to dark would be...Nan??
And peace to all.

to mimic nature is prolly optimal,
but in reality it makes very little difference.

That's been my ovservation too hippie. Almost like it's too damn convenient. Love this hobby.
