pf tek noob question
« on: February 02, 2012, 08:09:37 AM »

Hey guys

My name is Hein and as you'll find out now, I'm quite new to the whole growing of mushrooms.

I got my substrate I'm gonna use as well as some spores. Everything is happening tonight so I have a question. When I birth the cakes, and they have pinned, do I keep them under a light cycle or isn't it that necessary. My friend who I got the spores from says that it must go under a 12 12 cycle.

I read onm some pages that it doesn't need any light cause only plants photosynthesis, but isn't a mushroom a growing organism???

Please any advice would help a lot

Thanks

Hein

Ha die Hein, yohoo

Light in this case is only neccesary for getting them up pointing towards the light, think u r Dutch  -_- sow/ ze motten licht hebben, anders gaan ze niet recht staan, ze groeien dan over de bodem en zien er niet uit. Neem goedkoop licht liefst LED 8 uur is ws. ook al genoeg. Alles is bij Action...

light plays a factor in triggering pins to form. so you'll surely need light when you fruit your substrate
