a few seconds in a bright windowsill works wonders
but don't overdo direct sunlight- too hot.

If you are just now adding a casing layer then wait until the mycelium is poking through the casing layer (around 3 days) then stick it in the fruiting chamber and add light.

But now the room/house conditions are different (a different house). It has steam radiator heat as the house is over 80 years old. There are 2 inch metal pipes in the corner of the grow closet which carry steam heat up to the second floor. These pipes of course give off heat of their own. The closet stays a nice 71 -74 degrees without any lights on. Perfect for my Mexi cubes but when the lights go on (florecent) the temps go up to 78-80 degrees after a 2-3 hours. The higher temps tend to reduce the nummber of pins, so I have tried to keep track of just when the heat kicks on, and the warmer parts of the day, and the times in between when the heat is not on yet and the temps are cooler outside ( a tricky task to say the least).
And this is when I try to run the lights. So the light times are on and off for different lengths of time at different times of the day.
I know the babies don't need a lot of light time to do their thing, but the question is if the light periods can be broken up into small and irregular periods and still get proper growth ?

Yes, that will work just fine.
