Mushroom Cultivation

Retaining mushroom moisture without the mold

Precise humidity and temperature vary throughout a mushroom’s delicate growth cycle. From maintaining the right moisture levels in compost without causing wetness to providing moisture during the spawning stages where watering is discouraged, mushrooms are extremely susceptible to water loss and weight reduction in humidity levels below 90% relative humidity (RH). For healthy, high yield, humidification must meet mushrooms at the perfect moisture level.

The Humidification Challenge

Low Humidity Ruins Crops

Mushrooms thrive in dark and humid environments, and suffer when conditions are dry. Humidity levels above 90% RH hydrate the mushroom crop, protecting them from water loss, shrinkage, and spoil.

High Humidity Risks Mold and Spoilage

However, mushrooms can also accumulate damage in too much moisture. Besides the brown spots that form when droplets fall on mushrooms, excess moisture creates mold and hospitable environments for spoilage organisms.

Higher Control Over Temperature

Besides moisture, the double cooling effect that self-evaporative systems offer also puts temperature control into growers’ hands. By efficiently cooling both air and water through an adiabatic process, these humidification systems consistently generate outputs of 40 degrees Fahrenheit, irrespective of external temperatures. Cultivators can create and adjust finely-tuned temperatures during the mushroom growth cycle.

Seamlessly Scaling

Finally, cultivators provide consistent, precise humidity and temperature control for any size of crop using the self-evaporative humidification system’s modular scalability. Each system is designed to be simple, safe, and easy to use throughout every stage of growth and operation expansion.
