I'd still fan. I fan my shrooms every time I think about them, which is constantly. once an hour should be good though, unless you are at work..

I couldn't answer that. My shrooms just have to wait until I get home from work. So they go about 9 hours without any fresh air but they seem to do alright.

cool mist is great for air exchange you can get one for 20 bucks

If you need more than that try a computer fan on a timer with polyfill around it.

No that pump wont make a difference it doesnt move enough air,
The way a cool mist works is there is a fan inside humidifier that moves air through a damp filter the fan is like 6 in on most of them and they move a lot of air you shouldnt need anything else.

great thats what i have... should i run the cool mist 24 /7 then .. cause i have a aquarium heater in the resivoir of the cool mist to make more humid and heat.. maybe i just take the heater out and let it run 24./7 .. would i still need to spray or fan then?

ahhhhh didnt realize it was the small, you will have to experiment get a good hygrometer and try test runs to set humidity no one on here can tell you how to do it with your equipment.

One cool mist running 24/7 in a two tier is more then enough FAE. Should just about do the job for humidity also. My greenhouse's stay about 93% with just 2 coolmist running 24/7. I actually cycle them off at different times for a 1/2 or so 6 times a day. They last longer if they don't really run 24/7.

Sometimes my shrooms are covered in mycelium. Kinda cool looking. Doesn't seem to bother them.

Peace,Love,Happiness and Harmony.
