Mushroom Mania: Why Invest in Commercial Humidifiers for Grow Rooms?
For all mushroom enthusiast, whether a hobbyist or a business opportunist, growing mushrooms can be challenging. Why? For the mushrooms to successfully bear fruit, a delicate balance of light, carbon dioxide (CO2), temperature, and humidity are needed. Getting it right comes with experience. For newbies and hobbyists, have fun with this, it is a learning curve. For business opportunists, getting it wrong could lead to costly wastes due to irregularities in growth, contaminations, smaller yields, and lost time.
While mushrooms grow in dark areas, indirect lighting, such as sunlight, is needed to help mushrooms pin and sprout in the correct direction. Maintaining CO2 levels by providing continuous fresh air ventilation will avert problems such as stunted growth, spindly of stems, and missing caps. For mushrooms to flourish, temperatures between 22-24˚C (71 -75˚F) is recommended - outside of these parameters, there are risks that mushrooms may not fruit or could die. Sustaining an appropriate relative humidity (RH) between 70-95% can help prevent complications such as substrate cracking when too low, and bacteria and mold contamination when too high.
