How much longer do you think the light should be on for?? (It is on for 2 hours right now per day. And the temp is a constant 76F)

No disrespect to poogrower, but

1. agree
2. disagree - 74-78 is optimum for fruiting. some strains warmer, but these are in the minority
3. disagree - wet perlite is wet perlite. it'll get it above 95% for sure unless the tub is enormous
4. disagree - tiny light amounts for pinning only. then they seem to grow faster in the dark

See that is one of the porblems we can not seemto get above 85% humidity and that is bye using perlite in a aquarium.

Any suggestions.

With 85%, if you mist a couple times a day, and make sure your container isn't leaking air, you should have no problems.

Ya see that is the issue as far as I know I am not leaking anything. I am using a 10 gallon aquarium with plastic wrap over top.

Ya buddy my cakes are in complete darkness when they are being incubated. Then like you said bam but in my senario there was no bam. I got a couple of mushrooms off of each cake thats it per flush.

Are you sure about this? If this is being read off a hygrometer, I wouldn't trust it. A lot of them don't go over 85%.

That is true it may be off and not reading humidity correctly, but again if the humidity is right why am I getting such low yields.
