Moisture dripping on cakes
    #1460439 - 04/15/03 03:19 PM (14 years, 15 days ago)

My friend has a couple of PF cakes fruiting in a rubbermaid terrarium with perlite. Every time he opens the lid to fan the air out, the moisture that has condensed on the top of the lid drips down on the cakes. Thus far, he has been carefully mopping up the droplets from the cakes with a tissue. Is this harmful to the cakes? Also, anyone know anyway to stop the drip?

I wouldn't worry about the dripping and I certainly wouldn't bother whiping the drops of water off of the cakes. It will either be absorbed into the cake or evaporate into the air (unless it is like a huge puddle which I doubt it is).

I think I remember not long ago that someone posted a good technique to prevent moisture building up around your terrarium. I think it was that before using the terrarium, you coat it with vaseline. Sorry, I can't quite remember. Perhaps a search will reveal more...

Vaseline is a petroleum product and can lead to mutations (I believe could be wrong) if it contacts the shrooms. I say just don't worry about the condensation as long as it isn't constantly raining in the terrarium.

It's fine, but you can PC some moist verm to sterilize and put it on top of your cakes if you are worried about it.

What about some water droplets from the lid dropping occasionally on casings? Is that something to worry about?
