Air pump for FAE; use of in mono
    #27342730 - 06/10/21 11:05 AM (4 days, 16 hours ago)

How do people feel about using a small aquarium air pump for FAE in a monotub?

It's unnecessary,  just crack the lid or have holes for fae.
No one here uses additional fae unless they're growing pans or similar in Marthas.

I feel it will not help, may hurt.  I used one when I first started, it did not help at all.  Like Daryl said.

Noob idea based on a misunderstanding of the monotub that already gets FAE 24/7 automatically. The monotub is already automated

Works best when paired with a drip shield.

With this mono set up there is micropore tape covering the six 3 inch vent holes instead of polyfil. This might restrict FAE enough that an air pump might help regulate that. Humidity readings tell all though right?

Thanks for the good info! [:
The micropore tape over the holes was the factor. Suggest no filter of any sort on the vent holes? [6x 3"]

Any humidity reading you're going to get won't be that accurate or useful.  If you want to use a pump then do it. But it's unnecessary ineffective and won't help you

Sounds like you have used some cheap hygrometers.
How would humidity readings be inaccirate/ not helpful...
Please explain.

Micropore tape is fine, I hate polyfill.  No hole tubs work fine too.  My biggest fear for you is it sounds like you want to do something to help your mushrooms grow, and that usually works against them.  They really do fine on their own.  The shroomery is filled with “TEKs” where people add all this stuff to their tubs like humidity gauges, heaters, air pumps and humidifiers, and I can’t say I’ve seen any of those teks come to any real results, and the people then disappear when they fail after any competent growers tried to help.  Keep it simple, don’t overthink it.

Cool [: thank you.

Don't measure humidity. Look at the surface of your substrate and your fruits. Reading a gauge for a monotub is only going to make you make dumb decisions because you read shrooms need 99% humidity and you'll try to keep it there

pushing fresh air into the fc is at best useless and and worst harmful. always let fae happen passively
