Whats up with this perlite?
    #1548693 - 05/14/03 06:05 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Yah, Ive grown for some time and used the same procedure. PF tek then perlite in container. A couple days ago i checked on the perlite and it got dry somehow, so i re soaked it, but for some reason the air inside the container isnt as humid as it was in the past....what is up with this perlite? The container has no holes in it either, im confused. In the past I used to get condensation in the cointainers with perlite.

the perlites exactly the same? make sure it isnt waterlogged, its kind of good to be *slightly* dry. so as to allow the free passage of humidity droplets into the air

So too much water in the perlite prevents it from being a good humidifier?

also a little heat from below can help stimulate humidity

but your perlite should be about 1/3 water 2/3 perlite

the thing is, the terrarium's initial perlite dried out, which forced me to re wet it. Ive never needed to re wet my perlite, so im alittle concerned. I used to get condensation too, which im not anymore.
