Need more humidity!!! HELP!
    #1347383 - 03/02/03 06:20 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I birthed my PF cake yesterday. It was fully colonized however it hasnt begun to pin. I put it in a fish tank with 2 inches of perlite and an inch of water with a heat pad underneath the tank. Currently the temp is 61.2 degrees and humidity is 55%. Will my cake start to pin in these conditions? I know the humidity shoud be alot higher, how can I increase it???? Only got a heat pad, no fish tank heater or anything. Please help i dont wanna lose this cake to contams.

a tight seal on the lid will help the humidity quite a bit. check that and also raise the temp. - try a floor register if you have one. set the tank or whatever directly on top of the register.

If you have the money ($15 or so), you should buy an aquarium heater and a wide glass vase to put it in. Having these in your terrarium would raise temp. and rh levels. Do you mean that there is an inch of water on which your perlite is floating?...sorry, I was confused on that point. If so, though, your rh would be 95%+, I guess.

If you have water droplets forming from perlite, your humidity should be fine. What type of hygrometer do you have?

Just case it, bro. Do a search for the 60/40 verm coir case tek. Casing is easy, and well worth it in my experience.

I have a Springfield digital humidity/Temp guage I bought at Wal-Mart for $21.00. And yes its pretty damn cold in my house. So will the cold temp cause pinning?
