CO2 importance
    #4291768 - 06/13/05 05:04 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

I red that in growing stage, and after pining, it is good to drop RH to 85% and to let some co2 to build up, if I want to drop RH by fanning frequently or living filter hole open, co2 cant build up. Now the question, how important is co2 build up thing?

I think you may have crossed some of your wires. While CO2 build up during colonization is OK, after you place into fruiting chamber, you want constant fresh air. Fresh air is one of the triggers to induce pinning.

After pinning you can allow CO2 to build up a little more than pre-pinning.

Paul Stamets and J.S Chilton: The Mushroom Cultivator

Stage III: Primordia Formation (Knotting)
Once substrate temperatures have been lowered and CO2 levels have been reduced, primordia will begin to form. Maintain:
1. A constant fresh air supply to remove metabolic gases, and CO2 at levels less than 1000 ppm.
2. A constant temperature in the growing room that is within the fruiting range.
3. A relative humidity of 95%.
4. A 12 hour on/off light cycle.


Stage IV: Pinhead Development
After the pinheads have grown to pea size (3-5 mm.), their further development is primarily dependent on air temperature and relative humidity. To insure that they mature into healthy mushrooms, the
1. Air temperature is held constant within the fruiting range.
2. Relative humidity is lowered to 85-92%.<
3. A constant fresh air supply with CO2 below 2000 ppm
4. A 12 hour on/off light cycle

Note the increase from 1000 to 2000ppm.

Good luck

As much as humanly possible. Can't you set up a fish air pump?

3 to 7 times a day. If useing a pmp mist walls after fanning, to help get RH back up.
