I never fanned mine for all that long, just long enough for air exchange. I always worried about contams if I fanned too much.

That may be going overboard. You just need fresh air, so a couple of seconds should take care of the air exchange. Instead of doing it for 30 minutes, just do it for a couple of seconds at a time maybe 5 or 6 times a day.

How cum u got saran wrap over it?
Tryin to keep humidity up becasue you dont have a FC?
I suspect it would get a lot better air exchange with the saran wrap off.

yes i agree but i'm nervous about getting contams. i wasn't sure if i should or shouldn't take the saran off. if i only have to fan them for a few seconds then i guess that would mean less chances of contam if i take the saran off to fan. got two pretty good size shrooms that capped last night, they weren't that big maybe 4" tall and skinny but they are the biggest to come so far

I wouldnt worry bout contams too much on a casing, if your casing mix is presterilised should be fine.
From what ive read contams are more likely to take hold in a high co2 environment so by havin them covered u might actually be increasin the chances of a contam. You could add a lil h202 to ya mistin water to keep ya mind at ease but thats prolly not necessary either. If it does get contamed some time down the track after only a couple flushes then just means its time for an outdoor grow with the casin :wink:

Edit:
Oh btw if ya saran wrap is the lid to ya fruitin chamber then yes leave it on, but im readin it as if u have the saran wrap over ya casin, which is inside ya chamber?, but now i think about it thats prolly not the case.

You need to take that cover off or the only thing you'll see will be small, skinny shrooms. Oh, and Cob Web.

They need FAE to grow. At least put it in a big enough Rubbermaid to hold it. Mist and fan  4 = 5 times a day. Your fear of contams is doing more harm then some contams,lol.

Good Luck.

take the cover off WHILE fanning not just leave the cover off right? i didnt put anything over my first casing and it was covered in the mean green within 12 hrs, plus we over misted them and got overlay.

20-30 seconds max is what you want, don't needlessly expose your substrates to mold spores!

Isn't he talking about a fruiting casing ?

He said it had shrooms on it ?

Maybe I'm confused.

Sorry, lol. I should know better. I get that all the time,lol.
Just got called dude in the last post I made :grin:

I don't keep fruiting casing's covered with sarah wrap. Colonizing substrate yes. It only needs gas exchange. Don't know many peeps who do. A casing needs FAE.

Good Luck.

You should try a super small vent/fan on a good timer for your terrarium. They have the whole setup at lowes for $15.99
great when leaving the house days at a time.

hmmmm, so no cover... hey how about this, i just discovered bugs in my casing... so i read up on it and i'm thinkin about using tobacco. in your experience have you dealt w/ this? if so what do you think is the best method of fighting them? ther're mostly the ones that look like tiny fruit flies.
