cobweb favors stale air or still air?
    #6089150 - 09/22/06 03:01 AM (14 years, 7 months ago)

Which is more of a factor in aiding cobweb? the actual staleness of  air or the fact that it isn't moving?
Could you circulate stale air inside a sealed tub and avoid cobweb?
It seems like there would be plenty of fresh air inside most mono-tub type setups even with out the holes.

I'm talking about exchanging the old air to trigger fruiting then running a small computer fan inside until harvest.
Just might work? :thumbup: or doomed to fail? :thumbdown:

During fruiting, your MUSHROOMS want fresh, moving air. Stale or still air is bad for your mushrooms. That being said, stale and/or still air will also aid the growth of cobweb and trichoderma, the two most common contaminants in home mushroom culture.

A fruiting chamber needs fresh, slightly moving air for best results, with the least contaminants. There is no need to filter the air leading to a fruiting chamber. A very small fan might help, but make sure it doesn't dry out the surface.
