Massive aborts
    #1693977 - 07/07/03 08:00 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

Temp and RH have been close to perfect this last week. Occasional high temps up to 78, but otherwise fine. Lots and lots of pins jumped out all over the cakes, but now half of them are dead. Only 2 fruits doing well on 3 cakes. (A fourth has been isolated with possible contams.) 4 more that just won't finish the last little bit even after 7 or 8 weeks. Ye Gods. I don't know that I have the patience for...

umm...damn, how many aborts did I just eat? wow

what was I saying?

Rarely fan, Cool Mist running through 1/2-inch inner diameter hose 24/7. I only fan if it's hot in there.

You need a release of co2. Start fanning.

Yeah dog you gots to fan. I fan like 4 or 5 times a day, it helps alot when pins are there. Once you see hyphal knots then you should start stepping up to fanning like 4 times a day if you can, it helps out ALOT. You can get away with 2 or so though.

If you have a coolmist and decent ventilation I don't think you _need_ to fan - it really depends on the setup. My friend has a terrarium which rarely gets fanned (just opened to harvest and the such) and it has holes along the bottom for air circulation and a cool mist running 3-4 hours a day sporadically, not too many aborts. But try fanning, if it helps, then you know your cool mist sucks. With my friend's terrarium, you can feel the air venting out the bottom when the cool mist is on.

Not quite airtight. I have a drain pipe in the bottom and 10 very small holes in the handles. There's also an optional drain hole covered with a filter disc.

I've got a plug for the main drain. I guess I should put that back in now that I'm done with perlite.
