I don't really think there is a good answer on how often you should mist/fan.  

 

I have heard that a perfectly made monotub requires nothing as it maintains its own climate (humidity and FAE).  However with my own, I usually mist and fan once in the morning and once at night.  I could be wrong, but you sort of just need to figure it out for yourself.  

 

I would say the biggest thing that decides it is how the substrate looks.  If it is dry, you should increase misting.  In my own tubs, I know the humidity is good if there is condensation on the sides of the tub and a little on the lid.  I know the humidity is too high if there is a ton of condensation, leading to water droplets, on the lid.  I mist the substrate directly, but hold my sprayer about 2ft above it so a light mist falls down NOT large, heavy droplets.  If you spray the sides of the tub, it is basically impossible to know how the humidity of the tub is.  I will increase/decrease misting depending on the condensation I described above. 

 

Just have to eyeball and apply patience.  Penis Envy takes forever but I promise it will pay off:)

Hard to be patient with PE. Slow fruiting is normal. You're going to get fruit.

Definitely has been hard to be patient, but after its been a month already I'm just thinking it'll come when it comes. maybe worrying about it less will make it come faster. good to know you're confident that I'll get fruit. It definitely seems like its making progress, can't be for nothing.

Good sign they are still growing!
 

I'm not going to be much help and don't have experience with the strain so all I can suggest is keep the faith and be patient.

Mist it if it looks dry, use your bubble wrap and fan it twice a day. Pins can happen any time now

I've been doing the bubble wrap and all instructions I've been given but theres only been a little bit more growth. I think maybe I'm not misting enough because every time i go to check it it has no condensation and looks dry, It's as if its sucking it right up! Which is probably what is happening. I dont know whether im misting it too much or not enough. I'm not experienced enough to be able to know by sight. Hopefully these pics help. My sprayer is also really difficult to not make droplets, I've been testing out different angles and such to spray. Probably gonna get a new one. 

maybe my polyfill isnt thick enough-reasoning for it drying up so fast

Or 6 holes is too much? 

Or im fanning too hard?

The pics wont zoom but you can see the slight growth in certain spots but less in others. I just misted before the pic so that's why you may see a couple small droplets. I dont know how i should go about removing those if i should.

You should almost always see condensation. If you have fae you can't get it too wet. Don't worry about droplets. Or mist. Spray that thing till you see it wet. Or dunk it overnight. May have been too dry all along.

Before i resort to dunking it, Should i just spray it a lot when i mist?? And should i keep the bubble wrap on still?

Thanks.

Are you seeing moisture when you lift the bubble wrap? Should never be completely dry under there.

You can do just misting, but if you're not always seeing some condensation it will take a lot of it.

So there hasnt been any success with just the misting,no growth,  and im seeing a lot of yellowing develop  on the sides from it. i think i should just dunk it.

How do i dunk it?

I looked up how to dunk a cake for when people do more flushes. I cleaned and sanitized my sink and submerged it in room temp water and im gonna do it overnight. Ill let everyone know how it works when i put it back into fruiting.

this is what it looks like after its been dunked overnight, dried and in fruiting for 12-14 hours. How should i go about the moisture and FAE? it definitely looks wet, should i still mist the surface?

It looks like the casing got like, compacted onto the cake by the water. Will this prevent it from spreading?

It almost seems like the casing layer has been compacted onto the cake. Will this be preventing it from growing correctly? should i remove some of it?
