perlite?
    #1325060 - 02/21/03 04:20 PM (13 years, 9 months ago)

quick question.... how is the correct way of getting your perlite wet and getting your humidity high?

1. Get the perlite and mix it in a bowl wtih water.. Drain all the water and then put the moist perlite (1 inch) on the terrarium.

2. Place 1 inch of perlite in the terrarium, and then add some water to the bottom layer.

i did the first one and wanted to know if i did i correct.

Man i soaked my pearlite and drained and it doesnt seem very humid in my fruiting chamber. I say this because i dont see and condensation on the sides or on the top. Im broke at the moment so i cant get a humidity gauge unless theres one for less than 4 bucks because thats all in have.

Yep eye did say #1.
the perlite will soak up all it can and retain this water after drained. more than that and you can have extra water waiting to become a stagnant breeding ground for contaims. If your mycellium is dry for some reason then you may add a bit more water to have it wick up to the dry myc. But if perlite isn't at max retention it will wick away moisture from myc block.

check ! you are o.k. check to see if your lid is tight, if you are losing moisture/humidity there. my neighbor said that could be a problem.
