Vaseline?
    #1126554 - 12/09/02 10:38 PM (14 years, 4 days ago)

Ok, I'm quite confused about this now. I am currently using a thin layer of vaseline on the underside of my terrarium's lid. Will this do any harm? If so, what? I've been getting mixed messages on this topic.

As long as nothing touches the petrojelly, there should be no problems what so ever. It may be possible for the jelly to wash down to the fruits or drip on them, however this has never been my expericence.

Vaseline on your fruits will very likely cause deformities, which can be cool. if you like that sort of thing (which I do).

Hey, I have no problem with deformities. I look forward to seeing my handicapped fruitbodies.

The vaseline (hopefully) reduces water droplets on the underside of my terrarium lid, keeping them from falling on the cakes.

Vaseline causes a Rosecomb effect which will cause the mushrooms to almost grow into themselves or the caps will split and grow around itself.
Why not rather try some rubbing alcohol.
As long as you keep the lid clean with rubbing alcohol you should be fine.
It will be clearer than vaseline as well.

Rubbing alcohol works to stop water droplets?

yes indeed it does.
You have a buildup normally from a dirty lid or from it being overly droopy.
So with rubbing alcohol iot generally stays covered in condensation but not dripping condensation.

hmmm. If your lid is "droopy" then won't droplets come together and drip anyway?

where does the excess water go? or, does the rubbing alc./vasaline prevent the necessary amount of condensation from forming to induce drips?

I'm not really sure why it works (must be and act of god :laugh:), but there is no condensation on the lid. Excess moisture must condense on the sides. Dust and hair floating in the air will stick to the jelly though, so clean it off and replace it once and a while

Is it because the water droplets won't adhere to the Vaseline? Molecular adhesion?

    #1129042 - 12/10/02 03:29 PM (14 years, 3 days ago)

it would make sense that petroleum based products like vasaline and rubbing alc. repel the water from condensing. vasaline leaves an obvious residue, but it would also make sense that rubbing alc. leaves a similar residue which is not as obvious.

I think the idea of the alchohol is to completly clean the lid. Just like rain drops are created by moisture forming around dust particles, condensation could grab on to dirt and become heavy enough to drip. That's just what i think though.

Stamets states that petroleum products lead to mushroom deformities. I would stay away from that stuff, other then sexual lubrication, and the relief of a chaffed ass.
