Promoting a good pinset, more fresh air or less? (Pf Tek)
    #2173840 - 12/13/03 12:47 AM (13 years, 10 months ago)

Hey everyone,

I was wondering how fresh air affects the size of the pinset on a PF tek cake (and the subsequent fruiting).

My main pinning questions are: Can the amount of fresh air affect the size of a pinset? Will more or less fresh air promote larger pinset? Will more/less fresh air encourage more aborts?

Also, with regards to fruiting, I realise air exchange is important... but should you try and achieve as much air exchange as possible? (my friend's dog's air pump can do 7 complete air exchanges per hour) or aim for 2 - 3, like Stamets recommends?

Thanks very much,

And if it helps, my friend's dog just completed his first grow using the PMP mentioned above with the air pump on max (7 exchanges per hour) from the cake's birth. 3 cakes yielded 90 wet grams off the first flush, and that was harvesting the fruits well before the veils even appeared (let alone tearing - so he probably would have yielded more if he let them grow - also, there were very few aborts). So from what he can tell so far, the 7 air exchanges per hour worked well... but he still wouldn't mind some more experienced opinions. Thanks again.

Well, if you have humid air exchanges then you will want to have that on as much as possible. Pre-pinning and fruiting.

If you are just fanning, then you will want to do it say 4-6 per day. It would be more benificial to have higher humidity rather than dry fresh air for pre-pinning.

Once pinning has started, then its a good time to up your air-exchanges as to as much as possible.

as much air exchange as you can get without comprimising the humidity is the best.
