need help fast
    #1483902 - 04/22/03 09:50 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

allright, i am a humble first timer and decided to go with the basic 50/50 casing/pf tec method. everything was going great, mycelium had completely covered the casings, when literally overnight the mycelium started looking matted down, looking like it was wet. it had/has little drops of water or some shit that makes it sparkle. i am using perlite for humidification and have since started airing them out more often trying to lower the humidity. i was airing them out twice a day, but now am doing it 3-4 times a day. is humidity even my problem? any suggesstions?

From what your saying it sounds like it is.

your only problem, well, is everything if the casing is *completely* covered with mycelium. for a casing, 100 percent rh is ideal for pinning conditions. your main problem is overlay. the thing you DONT ever want to happen is for the top layer to be completely covered with mycelium. it dies and forms a dense, hard layer of cells. if you would read the faq, that would be of great help. you need to deep scratch the casing. it should still be alright though. water droplets on top of the casing are alright (ive never had a problem with it) during the pinning stage. after that, 100 rh = not good.

seems like you have to much humidity (which is sometimes common with perilite)
and this is causing overlay, you might need to utilize a technique called deep-scratching.

good luck young jedi :smile:

Depends on is perilite in a container that can be removed from the grow chamber ?
If so try removing for short peiods of time , and fan a little more often . You will have to play with how long to remove , and leave in the chamber for correct RH .
