Is this enough light?

Recommended Posts

I want to use my GH for ztub fruiting right now, since I already have more active Z-Tubs than I ever have, and need to utilize the space.

So I've run this LED light rope around it....

You can see my circulation fan at the bottom shelf....

Do you think I need to improve the lighting? This winter / spring I'll be legitimately using this as an automated GH, so I guess the sooner I get it dialed in the better...

What happens if there is too much light?

Not sure. Never done that. But I would bet that the only best trick is to give them a natural rhythm.

Do you mean intensity or rhythm?

Then the shrooms get zero to no flushes and if you are lucky one shroom will grow out of it and it will look just like a dick. I seen someone here grow that one dick shroom. I think he used too much light that's why it happened. I'm sure if you search dick and LOL together in the search bar you will find the post I'm talking about.

 

LOL at your fruiting chamber by the way. To keep a electric appliance like that in a chamber that should be or even might be at 100% humidity takes heavy retardation. All depends how severe the level of retardation you suffer from but from what I can see I must recommend that a guy like yourself to stay away from drugs altogether.

I've never used lights. Ambient light from my window works fine. I just rotate the tubs every couple of days. Those lights are probably just fine.

      Looks like your off to a great start.  Studying beforehand was the best way to start off.  Now hopeful you already have a grasp on the basics of how they grow, and what it entails. You said you received your spores from 2 different site vendors, I'm only familiar with s.o.s as the site vendor. May I ask  what the other site was and who referred you to them?  Was it a 'ology  member?

      I agree with this 100% man.  Not just because I'm posting on here either.  I truly dug through site after site from r/shrooms to anything I could come across that decent information.  I saw a lot of helpful threads on here with many a newbs like myself asking the same question over and over again and not a reply that said "just read the sticky."   Well done gents.   Anyway, here are a couple of pictures of one of the jars.  I try not to pick them up and mess with them if I can avoid it.  The dry Verm layer is a lot lower than in the tek but I believe that's because of how fluffy the sub was when I filled the jars.  Over the past 10 days it seems to have settled and there is about .5 cm of space between the lid and the top of the verm, layer.  That space wasn't there during inoculation.

      3rd tub was harvested last night. This tub did pretty amazing, I would have gotten them a little sooner, but I wanted to see how big they would get. This is the most I have gotten from a single tub, from this grow and my last.
