Start air exchanges when the mycelium is poking through the casing.

Cubies like 1-3 air exchanges per hour, but you can get away with fanning twice a day or so.

When the casings are in the chamber (after 2 days incubating, a patch, and a nice mist), you start fresh air exchanges and fully exchange the air anywhere from 3-72 times a day, or more. The larger numbers would require automation of course (cool mist, air pump).

easy, you eat 3 meal a day... so fan it 3 times a day, it's gotta "eat" too!

But air isnt food. You breathe more then 3 times a day dont you? Optimally, they'd have constant fresh air of 3-6 per hour.

Luckily they arent people though and can get by with only 3-6 breathings a day..

I was wondering what I'm going do when I fruit. I work a full time job that I can not go home more than once per day to fan. I have been thinking about this for the past couple of days. Anyone have any suggestions???

This is good advice. Look through the teks - for how-tos on both of these systems.
