Symptoms of not enough air exchange
    #4428566 - 07/20/05 03:35 PM (11 years, 4 months ago)

I posted last week concerning the tropicaire humidifier and air exchanger. The humidity is doing great 98-99% for my cakes but I am still concerned about the gas exchange. I am using one of the largest air pumps I could find at petco with dual outlets. I punctured 2 1/2 in holes into the top of the tub.

What are the symptoms of not having enough air exchange? Is there anyway I can tell by looking/feeling my cakes?

Skinny, whithered mushrooms. Im sure your air exchage is fine. Quit looking at the damn thing  :whack:

As scatmanrav said skinny stems and small caps are your first noticable indicators. Also not to knit pick but gas exchange and fresh air exchange are two separate things FYI just so ya know in the future. :wink: I'm sure your fine with an air pump like that also, you will also want some evaporation (transpiration)to occur which won't happen at all in a 100% RH environment.
