Fresh Air Exchange ?'s
    #6656651 - 03/10/07 09:05 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

First of all there should be a a link under mushroom info about FAE

2ndly i have a box fan with a arm and hammer elite filter it says it filters down to .01 microns and i also sprayed the fliter with a 5% bleach solution. But will this fan and this chamber that has perlite it be enough for the proper amount of FAE?

You don't need the fan or the bleach if you're just using a fruting chamber with perilite for humidity. Just mist/fan the chamber 2-3 times a day and you'll be alright. I mean fan with a magazine or something, not a literal fan.

i realize that i dont need to that big of a fan but i rather be safe than sorry when it comes to being clean so i added that filter and the bigger than fan the more air movement. And from what ive read i dont have to mist because my rh is 95% but im still going to mist after every flush

You got some bad information. You still need to mist a few times per day, even at 95%. You want a steady rate of evaporation from the casing layer because loss of moisture is a major pinning trigger. However, that lost moisture has to be replaced or the casing layer dries out.

You must have misunderstood. Mist daily with plain water. No peroxide. Save it to control cobweb outbreaks.

i accidently left a fan on my opened martha closet a week ago. All my mushies turned blue as if i had touched them all. Plus they were dried out. That was my one try with a regular fan, now i am going to continue using my Robert's rules of parlimentary procedures book to do the job. lol
