Too much rH in my Terrarium?
    #1123052 - 12/08/02 10:47 PM (14 years, 10 months ago)

Ok, I'm a bit worried about the humidity in my terr.  I'm fruiting cakes, so I know I need a lot of it, but have also heard of some bad reactions due to too much rH.  I have 2 inches of perlite with 1/2 inch of water.  I also have a plastic container with h20/h202 solution with a bubbler.  When I give the cakes light (anywhere from 5 to 10 hours a day) I leave the bubbler on during this same amount of time (BTW, would this create enough air exchange for an entire day?). 

Something that I found a bit odd, my hygrometer has gone over 100%, it doesn't even read the rH anymore.  (It is right next to the bubbler, possibly effecting it):




Here's a pic of the outside of my terrarium (water droplets):


What do you think?  What are the tell-tale signs of too much rH (before pins have formed)?  Comments will be appreciated :smile:

You can't have too much humidity for cakes. You might get some fuzzy stems and caps but that is no big deal. In one of my fruiting chambers I use perlite and a bubbler system like you described and it provides plenty of air exchange. A little extra fanning doesn't hurt though.  :wink:

If you are growing off of cakes (which from the pictures, you are) you'll want humidity 95-100%, so you're fine. About your hygrometer, many have a hard time accurately reading rH over 80%, so in essence its pointless to have one, unless you're gonna spend the big BUCKS.

Few.....makes me feel better :smile:  I could have sworn I read somewhere that too much rH causes stunted growth in cakes, I'm not too sure though.  Thanks for the quick responses guys  :grin:

fanning a couple times a day may help a bit in keeping the mush from getting real fuzzy.

Good bye.
