Air exchange?
    #4509745 - 08/08/05 08:11 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

Can you have to much air exchange?I have a pretty big cool air humidifier hooked up and it created alot of air movement in my grow chamber i was just wondering if you could have to much air exchanges and was wondering if i should maybe put it on a timer?

I would definitely try to time it. Some of those cool mists put out way too much and need to be monitered. It also depends on your FC size; if it's closet size then you're probably good but if it's a 10 gal tank I wouldn't let it run all day. Take care!

See how 2 hours at a time does. If a lot of condensation occurs on the lid then lower the time. Condensation on the sides is ok, just make sure it's not so wet as to drip onto the mycelium. If it still looks pretty dry try upping the humidifying time to 4 hours.

I don't use a vaporizer so I'm not the best person to ask, but I have done research on it. Wait for some more opinions though, it can't hurt. Good luck man.

I was thinking that the coolmist was more for air exchanges and my ultrasonic humidifier was more to rise the RH and am I correct on thinking this?

That's a good RH for the incubation period for bulks and the fruiting of cakes. Although, 95%+ is great for fruiting cakes. Now when fruiting bulks, 75% RH works great. You'll need to make the proper tweaks with a timer to get it right on or as close as you can. If you got the funds for a humidistat, you'd be in buisness. Having a humidistat makes your life much easier.

It's to high for fruiting a cased bulk. Now for the incubation period, 90%+ RH is good. You'll want to drop the RH down to 75% after you've done all the patching and you've got the rhizo coverage you want comming up through the casing layer. When you're ready to fruit that is.

Id leave it on all the time...you can have to much air exchange, but its really tough, and as long as your humidity is high enough, you dont.

You can certainly have too much FAE with a coolmist. So much in fact that your RH will drop to 80-85% and can result with split/cracked caps. I had to mist also to keep casings optimum and I'll tell ya the results are worth it (lots of FAE+moisture). BTW 75% RH will cost you yield and thats a fact. For optimal results keep that casing at "near saturation" as recommended in my Getting the most out of your casings!, A pinning strategy. GL
