Terrarium Fanning

Could you just put a very small fan in your terrarium, like one of those clip on fans, instead of having to manually fan it 3 or 4 times a day.

Sure, so long as that fan is blowing in fresh air.

my dear fellow shroomerite

i have been there, putting a home-made system of blowing fresh air and raising humidity. if u search, you may find it.

what i learned is that continous air draft makes the caps of the shrooms CRACK and create weird tribal shroomies lol lol  also the shrooms dont grow with pretty colors and straight stems

it's not so much air movement as introducing fresh air that is important. some people pump air from outside the grow chamber into a container of water on the inside using an aquarium pump. put it on a timer and you have automatic fanning.

Well, I do have this small air purifier that will fit inside my terrarium, if I put that on a timer will it work? I am not home all that much so I am looking into some different ideas that will keep my mushrooms growing well while at the same time keeping me on my daily schedule. Thanks a million!

You could use the aquarium pump.  but ive heard that that will not provide enough air exchange, but dont quote me on this.  what i did was i took a small box, cut a hole in it and attached a small computer fan to blow air into the box. next i put a filter in the box next to the fan to screen the air.  i then ran a 3/4 inch piece of tubing from that box into my fruiting chamber you have to make sure that very little air escapes the box. i have the fan come on once ever 4 hours for 5 minutes. i also put a make shift vavle that will only let air out of the tube and not back up into it.  that helps reduce humity loss.  the air being pumped through the tube creates enough air exchange, and that teams with my humifier keeps my mushies nice and happy.  :smile:
