Should I pump air in to my Spawning Chamber?
    #1570368 - 05/22/03 10:27 PM (13 years, 10 months ago)

I have just added my Grain Substrate to Straw and have it in a Terrarium style setup on a heating pad and it is stable at about 83-84 degrees as it is supposed to be.

The question is this.

Is air exchange vital during the Spawn Process?

I have a air pump running into the case now, but I am not sure if this is correct until fruiting?

Let me know if thats not specific enough?

What i've read, and taken to heart, is that during colonization, the air exchange needs to be minimal. The build up of co2 helps in the long run, when you apply fresh air exchange to induce fruiting. The main things i've read for fruiting, is that you need to give plenty of air exchange, a lil light, and a drop in temps. Dont forget humidity when fruiting/growing. It seems to be a critical factor. Good luck brother.
