Fanning questions
    #4694212 - 09/22/05 10:04 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

Some people say 2-4 times a day is fine, others say at least 6-12 times a day is needed. Which is it?

Also what's the general procedure for fanning, is it just a case of wafting air into the terrarium for 15 seconds or so, or do I have to leave the lid off for a while?

fanning or air exchange is very important during fruiting.

the more air exchange the better...but don't let your humidity level drop in your fruiting chamber...from having too much air exchange.

You can get by with only fanning 1-2 times a day, but to get the BEST results, you need to fan as much as possible without killing your humidity as RoadKill said. This is why some people say 1-2 times and some people say 100 times. Both will work, but both will give you different results. Just fan for a few seconds at a time. 15 seconds is probably overkill. You just want the C02 out and some fresh air in. Don't overthink this.
