Hey I'm new, but I've spent a great deal of time researching mushrooms and reading old posts here and elsewhere. I've noticed a few people mention that it is necessary to "fan" the mushrooms around 3 times a day for proper air exchange. I was wondering how you can do this and still keep the humidity near 95% if you're lifting the cover and fanning the humid air away all the time? Wouldn't this also potentially introduce contams? Is it more important to fan the mushrooms, or keep a high humidity?

Light mist afterwards. The more fanning the better... Don't accidentally mist pins though.

depends on how your tub is setup - a friend of mine has an ultrasonic hooked up via a pool hose- sealed with aquatic sealant glue. everynow and then he turns it on and it fills the tub up with a gianat white cloud. . . like now ; nit je mever (but he never) looses RH when opening it.

Also there was a post by hyphae yesterday where he said he likes to use a pressure sprayer (hand pump) - like a conventional mister yet with a pump on it that creates a ultra fine mist. . . . this seems like the next step up from the ultrasonic humidifier. .

Fan every couple hours, mist the walls, and fill it with that white cloud he was talking about. You'll keep it at more like 99% and get great air exchange.

Everything I say on this board is a lie.

Eat more string cheese. It's good for you.
