i'm getting pissed....

this perlite humidity just isn't working for me...

so far i've tried out three different chambers
different ratios of perlite to water and damp perlite with dry perlite.

but i can't get it over 60% damnit!!!

do i need to put it on a heating pad or something so the water will evaporate?!

my room temp is like 73F and that's a good temp for pinning right?

i don't understand why this isn't working
and i've read the perlite teks

it shouldn't be this hard, damn me!

your hygrometer is broken. wet perlite gives consistently 90% + in a sealed tub.

use more perlite. the method i use is just take your bag of perlite. fill it with water and let it sit for around 15 minunutes then poke holes in that bag to let the water drain out and then after 20 minutes or so squeeze and tighten bag to drainout the water. take a cup or something and scoop this moistened perlite into your fruiting chamber to a depth of about 1" and that should definately make your container 99% or aruond there. make sure you have the top covered with something so it can hold the humidity.

Prohibition will work great injury to the cause of temperance. It is a species of intemperance within itself, for it goes beyond the bounds of reason in that it attempts to control a man's appetite by legislation, and makes a crime out of things that are not crimes. A Prohibition law strikes a blow at the very principles upon which our government was founded.

your humidity gage might be off try calabrating it to see if its over or under what it should be .
