Let me know if you think this is OK
    #2243122 - 01/15/04 02:45 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

Hey guys/gals, I just need to know if I'll be OK with this setup. I have two bulk boxes that have just entered the fruiting stage and are cased 60/40 coir/verm. I have a cool mist that runs for 15mins every hour keeping RH at 80-83%. Also, air exchange takes place 12 times per day and humidity remains constant during this time aswell. Do you think I'm getting enough humidity in there and is 12 exchanges overkill?

If you make sure your casing layer is always moist, 80% RH should be fine. Give it a small manual mist everyday to be sure.

Concerning air exchange, 12 times a day is definately not overkill. Optimal air exchange is 72 times a day (3 per hour).

good luck.

I should just mention that the fans are on a timer that runs on the humidifier's timer, but the fan timer is only set 12/12 whereas the humidifier timer is set 15 mins per hour. So from 10pm to 10am, the fans don't come on at all and the rest of the time they come on when the humidifier does. Does it really matter if the exchanges aren't spaced out evenly throughout the day or is it fine how it's setup now?

No, it doesn't really matter. But why are you setting it this way ? Just remove the 12/12 fan timer and it will be running once in a while all day long?
