Water droplet solution?
    #1120307 - 12/07/02 07:42 PM (14 years, 2 months ago)

I was searching the shroomery's humidity teks when I came upon this:

> I recently tried the perlite method in a small tuperware container about the size of a shoe box. I had trouble at first with water droplets dripping from the top of the lid. I got a cotton ball and some vaseline and coated the lid and the problem is resolved!!

Is there any merit to this? Any harm done to cakes/casings by the vasoline?

Vasiline works great! Just dry it with a paper towel occasionally.
If you get it on your shrooms they will grow fine but mutate around the spot with vasiline.

How much vasoline is recommended? I'm assuming a very thin layer?
