My CPs are in a place where they get alot of wind because there is a fan near them. Does this affect them in anyway? :?:

Wind is fine, they naturally live outside with natural wind. The only worry is like sun, moving from inside to outside can result in damage as they adjust to the wind. A fan shouldn't provide any significant amount of wind.

It makes their stems stronger. A fan for instance on seedlings makes them harder and stronger. It strengthens the cells.
