Re: Air flow for bigger shrooms, like marijuana?

Not quite sure.

Mushrooms are not plants by definition.
Obviously they must require some oxygen in order to grow, but blowing them with a fan could cause the cakes or casings to prematurely dry out, or introduce some airborne contaminant.
It sounds like a possible way to make the mushrooms grow "fatter" but then again that may jsut be a waste of the cakes moisture as well, since you will dry them eventally anyway.

I've found that cakes that I injected water into created some huge fat asses, but when dried they shrink to less than half the size they were fresh.

Maybe someone with more mycology background can help further?

i use NO external humidification on casings... Just like nature, and have 0 problems with drying out, contams, or anything...

I don't know if this idea will ever set in for some cultivators... I will say this once again to make it clear "DO NOT USE ANY EXTERNAL HUMIDIFICATION. YOUR GROWING OPERATION WILL NOT ONLY BE FINE, BUT WILL ALSO BENEFIT."

Ryche is right. Keep in mind that mushrooms are fungi and not green plants.

I understand that completely, but we also must keep in mind that mushrooms and plants have *both* differences *and* similarities... I was just wondering.

Thanks,

Definitely Ryche! The air exchanges not only gets rid of CO2 but other metabolic gases released from the aging colonized substrate. To add to what you were saying...It is my understanding that the air movement also facilitates the transpiration of moisture across the outer membrane of the shroom allowing it to regulate it's internal moisture content. This ofcourse directly relates to the shrooms ability to add mass and therefore allowing it to grow at it's genetically determined optimum rate. Damn, I feel like I'm back in school :wink:

Guess I should have said, "yeah, what Ryche said".

Peace, Love & Light
