My substrate is getting too dry!
    #1266140 - 01/31/03 04:56 PM (14 years, 1 month ago)

As you see in my grow log. I have horse poo n vermiculite with some hydrated lime. Its drying out on me before it's even covered in beautiful white fluffy clouds.

I read wikedanjel's post but didn't see an answer that relates to me. I do have plastic lids on the trays that go with the trays. My temps are low 80s in that incubation bin.

Should I go ahead and case it with some coco coir, vermiculite or both or
should I just spray it with water with a tad of h202?

Thanks in advance.

use perilite and water (many good teks out there), and put a little peroxide in with it for sterilization, and set you incubating stuff in there, the humidity should be high enough that the cake will absorb the water through osmosis.
