too much humidity?
    #1426994 - 04/03/03 08:33 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

it's hard to gauge the humidity in my terrarium so i was just hoping to run the dehumidifier 24/7 which would put it at like 100% rh. what possible negitive effects could come from a little too much humidity?

thanks

If you're fruiting cakes you can't have too much humidity.

I believe that too much humidity will cause an overgrowth of mycellium, or too much soft white fluffy mycellium. I also heard that casigs don't need high humidity, but i'm not sure if thats a bad thing or not.

SOmebody correct me if I'm wrong
