Addressing the issue of humidity
    #1580799 - 05/27/03 08:05 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

From reading many growing guides, spraying seems to be the most adament way to increase your humidity. Can perlite be a subsitute for spraying, if you keep your perlite in a fair amount of water?

Vermiculite... holds more water, can this be used in place of perlite if what I said will work?

Thanks

great. Thanks for the info.

Now if I use perlite instead of spraying.. do I still have to spray every so often?

As well will I need a drip gaurd if I use perlite.. drip gaurd is the only thing holding me back

you shouldn't need to spray at all with perlite....and no you won't need a drip shield...just fill your fruiting chamber with 2 inces of perlite and half an inch of water and keep it at that level...fan it a couple times a day and you'll be golden

Stupaod.. what should be my relative humidity for #1 colonization and #2 fruiting. I hear 90% for colonization and 95+% for fruiting. Is this right?
