Is there such a thing as too much air exchange?
    #4016905 - 04/05/05 01:32 PM (12 years, 1 month ago)

Ok so a person has a pmp, with a 14 inch bubble wand in it. He also has several polyfilled holes around the pmp. Is there such a thing as fanning it too much? He can fan it once an hour, once every two hours, i mean what is bad and what is good?

I have heard of people doing it twice a day all the way to 8 times a day? Just curious. Thanks.

Just remember, every time you fan you also drop the humidity. that would be one negative that i see.

walkingshark got it right. Fanning w/out replacing lost moisture will do you more harm than good. Ideal setup combines good air exchange along with constant moisture.

So, as long as I dont have a problem keeping my humidity up, i can fan as often as possible?

I dont mean to sound redundent, but this chamber has NO problem with humidity. I have been fanning every hour and it is still 99-100%RH. I mist the cakes three times a day.

They cakes were birthed two days ago, and i dunked and rolled.

I believe in the past few hours i have seen some knots starting to show up, so I may stop misting the cakes.

Thanks for all the info btw.

yeah pretty much.

The hydra-pod works on a constant air flow...and so does the pmp.

As long as your humidity doesn't suffer from the air exchange your good to go.

That is my hope with my new PmP, not having to fan at all. I have two 18" bubble wands, and a 60 gallon air pump in a tote with plexiglass and two holes on lid.
Here is the picture of the supplies I used to make it.

You will find that with too much FAE your shrooms will split their caps and that means WOO slow down! :wink: GL

The more air movement you have, the more evaporation you will induce at a given relative humidity. At 100% RH you won't have evaporation no matter how much air you circulate. At 98% you could probably have a pretty good breeze in there without trouble of over evaporation of a CASING but a cake might actually have trouble. Relative humdity AND air movement together determine how much "drying power" a chamber will have. On top of that, if you bring in drier air than inside the fruiting chamber, obviously you will drive down your relative humidity. And if you don't bring in any fresh air, the fruiter chamber will rise to 100% relative humdity assuming there is free standing fresh water in there somewhere. The rise will be faster the more internal re-circulation you have (if any).

Wally World is my one stop shroom store  :thumbup: I purchased everything from there except the Geolite which I purchased from Ward's online 15 liters for $16.95 including shipping, best price on the net link here http://wardsci.com direct link to Geolite here http://wardsci.com/search.asp?t=ss&ss=Geolite Wally World is great though.

Another pointless bump of a 3 year old thread just to quote something someone else said.
