Do magic mushrooms need light for growing?

Magic mushrooms don’t do photosynthesis, so they can grow without any light source. Furthermore, they can’t get any direct sunlight or the colony will die. With that being said, it is always better if mushrooms have some sort of light source – especially if it’s directly above the colony (artificial light). Artificial light or indirect sunlight helps magic mushrooms to know in which direction they have to grow. That’s why if you want to grow straight and not-deformed magic mushrooms – having a light source might be a great idea.
