Best method to eliminate fanning to keep moisture and temp down
    #4199583 - 05/20/05 03:14 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

Is there one? Or is fanning mandatory? Should I hook up some sort of fan/tube system on a timer and make a polyfilled vent? Do I need a HEPA fan?
As it stands my fruiting chamber gets pretty hot 80-84 during the day, I can only fan @ night due to work etc...

use a bubbler system to eliminate the fanning...and keep the moisture up.

using some ice packs might be an answer to keeping the temp down.

Constantly

I used to use a bubbler 24/7

and look at the results.

RH is no concern, I have to open the lid every evening to get it down 90 , but fresh air I think would help keep mt temps down, I think an ice pack may be overkill, though sometimes when I check it the temps are 90-92

Yes

aquarium pump
air hose
air stone
some type of glass(like a drinking glass) to put the air stone into.
water mixed with h2o2...into the glass.

air pump with a filter disc.


bubbler in a fruiting chamber.

Impeller type coolmist does wonders for fresh air exchange & keeping rh high......plus can be automated easy as adding a timer.

I don't use a Martha. But, I would try 2 on 2 off.

I would guess your Martha is open on the bottom. That is why the rh drops, as it escapes about as fast as it enters from an impeller type coolmist.

I incubate / fruit in a 22 cubic foot upright freezer shell. Only exaughst is 1/2 drain tube in the bottom.
