Humidity too high?
    #1612933 - 06/05/03 10:27 PM (15 years, 23 days ago)

Hi,

I've got a pretty lazy setup, but I figured it may work and be really easy. Here's what I've done: I've got a large rubbermaid container with an inch of water/peroxide on the bottom. I've got an aquarium heater that keeps it at a constant 26 deg C (78 deg F). With the lid on, it's pretty humid in there (water beads on the side and lid of the container).

The cakes are developing little knobs everywhere, which I'm guessing are the mushrooms starting to pin. Thing is, in some places there a big clumps of mycelium developing. Is this because there's too much humidity? (BTW, Of course the cakes are resting on 'stools' to keep them out of the water).

You can't have too much humidity when fruiting cakes. Read this, under the Cropping section.

Thanks dude. I'm also worried that fanning is going to contaminate them. What's up with that? Not going to happen at this stage?

before fanning your chamber, spray some lysol in the area. Give it a minute or two to spread and sit. Then open your chamber and fan. You will be okay, if your place is kinda clean. Look around for things that grow mold, like I had a bunch of beer bottles lining my wall, before I even started, I got rid of those.

Fanning has an inherent risk to it of attracting airborne contamination spores. However, since you HAVE to fan, there's not much to do about it, especially in a lazy setup (which is no sin, I use it too). If you want to be safe, you could make a larger terrarium and fan it (automatically) with an electronic fan with filters attached to it. This would be considerably safer, but also considerably more expensive and absolutely a lot more hassle. So I suggest you just try it this way for a while, and if at some time you want to go pro, you know what to do. Happy shrooming!
