I am glad to have found a community that may be able to help me with my new hobby.
I am still learning the ropes but I think I got the basic rules down.
Right now I am at the fruiting stage with a Monotub build with built in air fan and humidifier which I am now thinking was overkill. I had 5 1.5 Inch holes backed with polyfill tightly but the casing (coir) was drying out and i was not getting any condensation on the walls.
I have now recalibrated my humidifier and blocked 4 of the holes, now keeping steady condensation on walls.
Sadly first few few extremely small (1 Inch) and opened almost immediately as I freaked myself out a bit reading stuff about the spores ruining the cake. I had one looking good and it was right at the end of my humidifiers tube so I am hoping adjusting the moisture helps.
I have bumbled my way through the process and was running lower end temperatures throughout so I am not overly surprised its not kicking out behemoths right of the bat.
Do you guys think it was the low moisture causing the small fruits?
Right now I have my fan only running for 30 seconds at a time every 30 minutes to cycle air/ trigger the humidifier to run and keep the moisture levels up.
There are so many different ways to go about this I am a little bit over my head at this point.
