humidity question
    #1143801 - 12/15/02 05:59 PM (15 years, 4 days ago)

do the actual mushrooms need to be in 85-95% humidity or whatever, or just the mycelium? My current setup consists of a case sitting on perlite in a rubbermaid tub, and inside the tub the moisture is only around 70%, and was wondering if the perlite at the bottom of the case will compensate for what the tub doesn't provide, or if the mushrooms will be hurt?

Casings need lower RH, around 82-92%. Keep it at that level, fan 2-5 times daily, and keep the temperature at around 75f. After about a week, you should notice primordia growing. Hope this helps.
