How often do YOU fan??
    #3213267 - 10/04/04 12:28 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Im just wondering how often you personally fan your cakes/casings? Many say a lot because of the fresh air exchange, others say less to keep humidity high. So I figure this could give me an example of different peoples methods. Thanks

everything depends man...
you have cakes? you need 100% humidity and lots of air exchange
you have casings? you can have 92-95% humidity and lots of air exhange!!

anything you have you need LOTS of air exhange! fan at least 5 times daily

I fan when I wake up, when I leave for my classes, when I get back, before I leave for work, when I get back from work, and when I go to bed.

Plus I have an airstone and a small pump in a filter box running 24/7...

also known as... fan as often as you can fit in your schedule easily.

with caseings faning is unneeded all you need is to open it once a day and give it a light spray perferably on the sides of the tub but it really dosnt matter unless there is knots awsuming your caseing in a tub

Well Stamets says 3 times a hour. You can get by with 3 times a day. From what I've seen I like to keep it more constant like the outdoors, it's the reason I did the poorman's pod and Martha cause they have constant airflow. (that and I'm fucking lazy and just wanted chambers that do the work for ya)

Reguardless If it's a casing or cake it doesn't make any difference they all benefit from FAE the more the better as long as RH is within an acceptable range. I agree the PMP's, Marthas, Homers as well coolmists make for an excellent environment, here we can optimize better than nature!

Ditto!

Fan as often as possible while keeping humidity up but make sure the room the chamber is in is very clean or you could be introducing contams fanning to much. I have not had a problem.

I fan approximatly 3-6 times a day (sometimes less if I'm not home) by cranking my HEPA up and throwing it in front of my closet door pointed in for 1-5 minutes then open and close the door quickly for about 30 seconds. I also have a small fan inside (like 6-8 inches in diameter) blowing 24/7 to circulate the air in the closet. It's a large closet so there are lots of places for fresh air once fanned and with the fan in there I don't think the co2 builds up to fast even filled with casings which makes the need for fanning amounts less but duration (or speed of air blowing in) needs to be greater.

Do I need a fan to fan or will opening the chamber lid and using a piece of cardboard, etc. to "fan" the air be sufficient?

I fan 5-6 times a day. You actually leave yourself more open to contams by not fanning enough contams thrive on stale stagnant air. Plus not enough FAE will lead to small capped shrooms and high abort rates(learned that one the hard way myself).

So pretty much, its valuable to fan as much as conveniently possible.

How long does the humidity take to rise back up to 95-100%?

Well I mist everytime I fan so I would guess not too long. But im not really sure as I dont use a hygrometer.So I really dont even know what my rh is much less how long it takes to get it back up after I fan.

Okay im gonna post because my last two flushes have been extra special. In the PMP, two holes cut down 2 in above geolite filled with polyfil. 5 times or more a day I turn on the cool mist which runs via a pool tube - cut into the hood of the PMP. never really open the lid but to harvest... Casing today has 6-7 inch. wonders not even teared yet. So happy that the shroomery is here to answer the questions along the way. GL
