I am using a modified styrofoam cooler/perlite tek humidification. How important is fanning of the cooler to change CO2 levels? Could high CO2 levels be responsible for excessive abhorts?

I also seem to have a problem with mycelium growing around the base of fruits as they start to grow. Is this a CO2 problem or excess humidity (which I assume also be altered by fanning).

Thanks for your thoughts!

what you describe may not be a problem. some cubie varieties are natural abort producers. reducing CO2 probably does not seriously affect pinset or maturation of cubies in my experiance, except some of the more difficult varieties, still the effect would be slight.

fuzzy butts on shroom is a response to high humidity.

excessive aborts sometimes a result of poor light, failure to thin out semi-mature pins that obviously will never mature. thinning promotes groath on the rest.
