Consequences of excess humidity for casings
    #1428827 - 04/04/03 02:43 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hi, I'm curious what if any consequences exist when casings are exposed to 95%+ rh during fruiting. My friend's terrarium (see pic below) is humidifed via 2 pickle jar airstone bubblers plus a tray of perlite. Relative humidity is usually 99%. He's had difficulty trying to attain the ideal 85-92% range that is recommended, although he's going to try something new this weekend which will hopefully help. He got this idea from debian linux: run a duct from the output of his HEPA directly into the terrarium, which will a) supply fresh *clean* air, b) create positive pressure inside the terrarium to keep contams out, and c) hopefully lower rh to a desirable level. A & B seem like no brainers, but C is just a guess for now... so I am curious to hear what consequences occur from high humidity with casings.

Brown streaks on stems, very little if any need to mist.

yeah I was wondering this as well. What IF your fruiting cakes and casings together in the same chamber and you keep the humidity 95% the entire time. Will this cause the casing to contam or not be all it can be?

a friend of mine fruited his cakes / casing in the same perlite terrarium... it may not be ideal but the casing will still fruit fine.. don't worry about it.. maybe some mycelium climbing up the stems... maybe brown streaks.. but still mushies! Don't worry so much :smile:

O'm a bit worried about my friends as well he, he has a very similar set up with the same Rh, would anybody advise dropping the hmidity for the casings?

I believe, ideally you should have high rh until the casing is done pinning, and then lower your humidity to 80-90%.
