Going away for a week...

Well, The Mushroom will be on its own for a few days while im out. What is the best course of mantience to prepare my fruiting cakes for the time? A little info on my setup, ive got 3 cakes, 1 day out of dunking. 2 are on their 1st flush and 1 is on its third. There are pins on two. Would it be best to keep the lid on(bad cause trapped c02, good for moisture and cleanliness) or would it be better to take the lid off for air ciruculation- but then moisture will be hurt.
Im planning on putting some cups of water within the tank for extra moisture...

i would def leave the lid on
it's too bad, b/c you will be away during the time when air exchange is crucial for pinning...but at least you should have some treats when you get home!

Maybe this could help : cut let say a 4" X 4" square on the side of the container, tape some kind of filter over it (polyfil or anything that you think will at least filter a little bit) and then just place a small fan aiming right on that hole at the lowest level.

If you create only a little bit of airflow with some fresh air, it should be good! Just a little bit to let say remove some CO2 but not enough to lower the RH more than 2-3% .

I dunno, just thought of that. Quite simple and could save your cakes.

.fs.
