Here is what road had to say about the Q's:

Can you fan/mist too much?
I think air exchange is very important.....I don't think you should fan over 3 times a day.... you can lose humidity if you do.
Although if you use a bubbler you will get more air exchanges and keep the humidity up high enough.
I think if you over mist your cakes and casings directly on them.....you are more apt to get contams.
Why do pins abort?
I believe pins abort when you don't have the right growing conditions.
Temp, humidity and air exchange are all factors.

So I guess ill change update the answers:

Why do pins abort?: **I am just assuming here, I have no real evident of this** Why pins/mushrooms abort is not entirely known. It is most likely because the mycelium is using up the majority of its water/nutrient/energy to grow the other fruit bodies. The reason certain pins are chosen to abort in unknown.
Also the conditions in the terrarium are a major factor, humidity, air exchange and temperature. It is known that if there is too little oxygen and too much carbon dioxide in the terrarium there tend to be more aborts then if conditions were more favorable.

Can you fan/mist too much?: Yes, you can. If you fan too much your humidity may be too low, its safe to say never fan more than 4-5 times a day.
You have to make sure you don?t mist your cake/casing too much! If you mist too much it will drown the mycelium with water and help contams thrive. The key word is moist, when a casing/cake looks dried out then you can lightly mist it but don?t soak it. Also it is a good idea not to mist too much directly on pins or mushrooms because that can cause rot.

Anno read those over and check if it?s all good....
