fanning using a mini-fan
    #3186897 - 09/27/04 05:03 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

how do you create enough air exchange over your fruiting surface?

some fan use the terrarium lid, some use a piece of cardboard, i even heard of someone using a hoover / dustbuster thing. i'm not yet lucky enough to just have a coolmist take care of it all for me .... so i use this:



here's my latest find - it's a handheld fan for fat people to sit on the underground with, in hot weather. also useful for wandering round humid places, like the London butterfly house in Syon Park. (note to self: try to plant mycelium in there).

it's been cleaned, and i keep it in the tent next to my tubs. with a clean hand, i can reach in, grab it, flick it on with my thumb, and hose down the areas with moving air.  :thumbup:

When I fanned I used the same type of battery powered personal fan! They work great IME.

I use a HEPA filter that has a directional output (pointed in a particular direction. Open the door of the closets and point the HEPA in (always sitting in front of the doors anyway) and turn them on high for a few minutes (about 5). I got both HEPA's for just under 50 bucks shipped (seperate ebay purchases). Little mini fans cool for a cheapy way but if you need a little more air, think about a HEPA blower :smile:
