You know how when some people grow weed indoors they blow a fan on the plant in it's early stages to make it stronger? Do you think that would work with shrooms-blowing a gentle breeze towards them to maybe thicken them up?

so long as that breeze is very humid, so it does not dry everything out quickly.

`id try something a lil more passive like setting them up to lean one way. of cuse, theyed better have good bases or theyll fall off.

As we all know a plant's stem is made stronger because of the blowing air. This is because the stem keeps the plant up so it is the stem that needs to become strong. The shroom, on the other hand, is kept up by it's base. The base of the shroom might be made stronger. I doubt it would do much benefit to the shroom overall. I certainly doubt it would make the shroom better in any respect. And any constant air movement seems to really dry the shroom out. I imagine that it would be damn near impossible to keep it wet with a fan on it.

air entrainment is constant air movement, and it has been said that this does a great benefit to the shrooms

But is it the constant air exchange of gases or is the actual moving air????? Im going with the gas exchange theroy , as it is the base of the mushie that holds it up ive seen plenty of mushies grow horizontal for a while then grow up and never fall over granted this was casused by pour gas exchange so in that respect I go with the exchange theroy....HMMMM ... Ultrasonic Humidifier....with small brushless fan mottor ....masive gas exchange and the ultrasonic should be able to keep up with it for moisture content....PEACE

Wind helps strengthen all rooted things. Gas exchange just keeps them alive and healthy. Fortunately, nature provides both in one shot...

Mushrooms exposed to wind will grow thicker, but will also grow more fibrous and "woody". Not fun to chew...

It was just my thought, but it seems to me the stress may help strengthen the mushies, but at the same time, do you want your shrooms to expend so much energy on stability? Seems to me as low stress an environment as possible would produce the best mushrooms. As ion said above, woody and fibrous. Bleck.
