They can go without food. Just feed before you leave.

Can you buy a cheap timer at say CVS, Target even your local hardware store? You should have them on a timer anyway for consistency...

If not the I'd have sometime turn your lights on for a little while at least. Your LPS will be happier, the mushrooms I don't think would be an issue.

Maybe others have better ideas or have more experience so hopefully they chime in.

You can get fancy timers but just as effective and much cheaper would be any timer outlet from a hardware store. Plug it in set on off times and leave light switch in on position. Probably cheaper then anything at an lfs
