misting - - - -
    #1439151 - 04/08/03 01:55 PM (14 years, 23 days ago)

a dude i know has a question about misting, he 's wondering when misting can damage things, or if theres' any warnings about misting anyone can give me, if a developing mushroom is misted, will this cause abhorting or other problems? he's been misting the sides of the terrarium i think, but if he just mists the air in it and lets the droplets fall, will this be a problem? he uses a nice mister from the garden dept. at wal mart.

Misting is fine.. plain jane CLEAN water is fine.

Once in a while clean your sprayer with bleach, and flush it out to make sure it's clean. avoid stale water.

It rains in the mushrooms natural habitat so sure mistings fine ! You could add some Hydrogen Peroxide (H202) to the water just to be extra safe if you want.

My friend has used a dilute solution of H2O2 and tap water for a long time with no ill effects, plenty of healthy shrooms, and the flushes keep going because you are fighting the enemy contam spores everytime you mist.

He likes it a lot and supplements lower humidities in the winter with it.

What about misting with some kind of liquid vitamin c? Crushed tablets mixed in water? Or is that just stupid?

Yeah, that's just stupid.....

Just kidding. I'm pretty sure that vitamin C doesn't inhibit contam growth, and I don't think it is a precursor to alkaloid production, nor would it stimulate it....

Please elaborate.

Don't forget that vitamin C tablets contain a lot of sucrose (sugar) to sweeten them which could be used, just maybe, by contams as a food source.
