Everything is dry, less air more mist!

It’s all about keeping humidity up.

Way too dry. I suspect that space heater had something todo with it.

You want the surface like the first post in this thread. Glistening with moisture.

Evaporation of surface moisture triggers pinning.

The space heater is being utilized to control the temp. My basement, which is the only location available is pretty cold. Going to keep the lid on (not flipped) and mist.

Or

Would flipping the lid and killing the heater during the (lighting on) hours help with GE/Evaporation to possibly provoke pinning?

It might not even be salvageable if the mycelium dries out too much it can die.

Unless your going to monitor it and mist religiously it’s going to cause problems.

My very first grow I let my surface dry so bad the myc died, but once I fixed conditions new myc sprouted all over the old dry stuff.

Mushrooms are so weird.

How does one selectively control fanning when they say 'increase fanning' / 'decrease fanning'? I mean with misting I'd understand to simply spray more often / less often. Do I blow a fan closer towards the tub (but not at it)? Or increase fan speed? Or open the tub more often and inhale all the warm air through my mouth? (or to use an old dirty magazine to wave air)

Usually the term fanning is referring to the old school method of taking the lid off your tub and waving it above the open tub in a fanning motion. Creates air flow and helps evaporation. :shrug:

Usually, you should increase FAE (fresh air exchange), not fanning.

Im quite positive i was Fanning excessively for years, and always getting small fruits. The humidity was always so low in the tubs due to to much fanning.

Now I try not to even open them once until harvest and i beleive the high humidity promotes taller fruits.

I may have fixed me several year long small fruit first flush issue by not fanning .

Thanks man,

Will build a SGFC this week. This bag is really not ideal as i can't inspect it closely so thanks for this idea

Do you think it is possible that more fruit will come before dunking it again if i change the condition?
