Bulk Grow - Too Many Aborts - HELP
    #2573993 - 04/18/04 03:09 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)

Can anyone diagnose my problem? I am experiencing more aborts than normal growing mushrooms on my flushes.

My setup is as follows:

- Rubbermaid bin with a clear lid for lighting
- bin is fanned once a day
- light exposure approx. 6 hours a day from 40 Watt bulbs
- casing misted (not on mushrooms) once every 2 days.

I'd up the fanning a little, twice or even three times a day, depending on how air tight the container is.

try adding some holes stuffed with polyfill or covered with tyvek on the sides of the container to improve air circulation

The lid is air tight, but I am worried if I up the fanning 2-3 times daily, it will affect the humidity (since it takes several hours to build up after fanning). I guess my question now is: does insufficient humidity contribute to aborts as well?

some holes to let co2 out like musesicksic said is what you need. The humidity will pull in air through the holes i would imagine.
