    How does a flowhood work with mushroom growing?

    This model is a horizontal flowhood which creates a low velocity air flow that blows toward you. This air is super filtered and is 99.99% sterile. It can be used in any environment for many different things. The sterile moving air allows you to work in the space and open up substrate jars, bags, transfers, make spore syringes, work with agar plates and much more. If you ever experienced mold from inoculations, this will eliminate that.

    Item was shipped fast and secure. Fully functional and good to go. I love it! This unit will allow me to practice and perfect all the main mycological processes related to mushroom production.

    Thanks Midwest!

    My only complaint is the paper on the acrylic panels is very difficult to remove.

    Cons:
    It’s amazing how well these work but now I understand why everyone in the mycology community stresses using a flow hood. I was using a still air box with about 50% success or less. I have yet to have any contamination with this unit yet it’s incredible.
