- The warm air from the heated water will make the humidity level a bit higher so just perlite should work fine for you. You might find you have to mist once in a while but most likely not

- As for keeping the cakes off the perlite try tinfoil squares under them. Works fine for me.

- You should have no problems with just the plastic wrap and no drip shield

Should I use perlite, or just mist the walls to keep the humidity up?




Either way you'll want to use perlite. Misting the walls is optional, but it may help.

I knew a guy that used to use mycobag cakes religiously. The best method he found was to use a fish tank terraium, (size depends on cakes 10gal- 3 cakes) and put 2 10" bubble wands on the bottom, 2" of geolite, and filled with water/peroxide to a 1/2" below the geolite. For the lid, he cut some plexiglass to fit. He fanned maybe once a day, never misted and had exceptional results. I was quite surprised. Dunking between flushes was beneficial as well. Good luck with whichever route you go!!

That is the type of terrarium I use. It is very easy to set up and takes no effort to keep up air exchange. Just have to put water in every 2 weeks or so.
You can get a big rubbermaid container and some hydrokorals which are available at any hydraponics store. WORKS GREAT! I have been trying to preach the word of hydrakorals around here but I don't think anyone is listening. :grin:
