Will this fan short out because of moisture and exposed wire?  Can I put RTV sealant on it to prevent that?

Ya you can just put your trays on the GH shelves, and open up the front and fan 2-3 times a day. You can set the humidifier on a timer to come on for a couple mins every 4 hours or so. You can tweek it so your rh stays high but there's not excess water to pool up on the bottom too much. That will work until you decide to get a hygrotherm and exhaust fan to make it automated.

You can even put the exhaust fan on a separate timer to come on for a couple mins right before the humidifier kicks on :) That way you won't have to open it to fan.

If most contaminants and dirt is near the floor, would an exhaust fan be better towards the bottom of the greenhouse and holes for FAE towards the top?  Suck air in from above and exhaust out the bottom?

Also wondering about this....even though its best to work in the most sterile environment as possible, sometimes its not possible for us closet growers....best of luck though....:wub::P One love

Fully automated is my final destination....I feel like it would take a while to get there though...(space, finances, environment....) :wub::P One love

So, I would like to try to get this dialed in a little better and more automatic before putting it back to use.  I am hoping people that have these will weigh in and let me know what works for them.  Thank you @magicman for all the information you have added to this thread.

What do people think of exhaust at the bottom vs. the top?  I think for now I might just set timers to do cycles of on and off for humidifier and exhaust and Tyvek patches cut into the GH on each level.

@OpenBar I noticed you posted a picture of your GH, do you leave the thing unzipped all the time, could you give me some details about what you have going on?

Thanks in advance.

      Thanks for the info. So I went on and tried to create 2 jars of LC. One with maple syrup and one with honey. I did them just like the instructions on this forum and was as careful as possible not to get contamination like sterilising the needle after each injection and so on. The jars you see in the picture are for more than 20 days ago if you look really close there are some tiny strings are visible in there but I'm not sure if it's mycelium. And the two jars of grains are a mix of grains and wild bird seed. It's been 5 days since I injected them with spore syringe but there is no sign of mycelium, not even a green mold of contamination. The syringe is b+ from Avalon . I'm thinking maybe I've got pure water inside a syringe. Give me some hope guys it's really frostrating to see the only hope of fun I had is going nowhere.😑😑😑 I don't even care about taking shrooms I just want to see mycelium grow... Btw I've been keeping the jars in a room temperature in the dark of course.

      Now that you have pins I would cut back on the fanning.  When my mush stays small, it's usually a lack of FAE. My setup is ultra low tek. I start sgfc with the holes taped up on sides and top. After I get pins I untape some/most of the holes to adjust FAE. It's kind of bootleg, but it's working for me at the moment. I usually average 3g per cake, per flush.    Congrats on getting those to finally pop.

      Thank you for the library of information & community! Questions regarding the Mush Zombie 60 qt monotub: During the "spawn to tub" (Section 3) 1)Do the holes need to be in place at this point? 2)Would it be ok to have the trash bag fully encapsulate the environment or does there need to be sufficient air exchange at this point? 3)If this is an issue during day 1 of 10 incubation, should one open the tub once a day to provide fresh air, or will it be ok for this 10 day period? The tub is in a 81*F bath (Cold House) & placed inside another tub to float on top. If all is good great, otherwise any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank You Again!
