    Does anyone put a small fan on a timer in the general vicinity of your fruiting tub to move air when you’re not around? I am thinking about some automation, perhaps with a cool mist vaporizer as well. Interested in others setups, cycles and successes with something like this!

    for mono tubs i dial my tubs in via FrankHorrigans techniques on the shroomery. can be found in my journal over on that site.

    now if i had an extra humid or hot or stagnant air in my fruiting chamber i would use an automated system. most likely a 10 min on hour off kind of deal. indirectly blowing around the room. But then again it is just so easy to properly stuff poly in holes and fan if need be.

    Interesting. I am just using BRF Tek and planning to fruit in a holy tote suspended within a large chest freezer. I am using a thermocouple to monitor the air temp and kick the unit on/off as needed to maintain 77F. I do the same thing with wort fermenting (beer brewing) in this chest freezer. I was thinking of also putting a small fan off to the side of the tote to move air periodically on a timer.

    Well. I am off to the races. No vaporizer at this time but freezer on Johnson Control, FAE pump running, and light and fan on separate timers...
