Controlling Humidity???
    #1390221 - 03/19/03 06:25 AM (15 years, 1 month ago)

Just wondering how you controll the humidity level using the perlite method. How would you lower and raise the humidity level?

My friend puts his perlite into small plastic tubs inside his fruiting chamber. He adds or removes the tubs as needed to regulate humidity.

If you leave the lid open to fix humidity.. wouldn't that invite contams in?

well, yes, but since we're talking fruiting stage here, when the myc has already 100% colonized the substrate, occasional exposure to the environment outside the chammber is not a major unacceptable risk :smile: unless the outside environment is exceptionally contaminated, or you are particularly unlucky,

can you just scoop out some perlite to lower humidity or does that not work?

If my grandma fans her fruiting chamber 5 times a day should her casings be fine? Will excess humidity ruin casings?

thanx in advance again.
