Just birthed! PERLITE QUESTION
    #1101820 - 12/01/02 09:55 PM (14 years, 9 months ago)

Hey fellas, just birthed my first cakes. I'm using perlite humidification. I've got 2 inches of perlite and 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the fruiting chamber, as advised here.

I know it works like a wick and it's not suposed to look saturated. However, I just didn't expect it to look so dry. Am I ok? Any thoughts?

I always know its good when you can take your hand and press it onto the perlite and some sticks to your hand...That way you know its nice and wet but not saturated

Perlite always looks dry to me, it may just be the type of rock. As long as you've followed that Tek, you're fine.

i usualy go by this method. i put in 1 1/2 to 2 in. perlite, then always keep enough water that you can see a very thin layer of standing water on the bottom of the tub . this provides the maximum of evaperating surface and you always have enough water. if you can see any water at the verry botto of your fruiting chamber, you know you have enough.

If you detect a scent reminiscent of Anethole (anise) please preserve a specimen or two for study and please PM me.
