what should i do about this terranium?
    #1606208 - 06/03/03 10:44 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

hello!
recently some cakes were birthed into a terranium and everything was set up according to several teks. now, in the past, the cakes have only produced one or two viable shrooms with several aborts. three times daily fanning and misting were done. the water level was one inch in the two inch perlite. they seem to be drying out, despite efforts made to keep the humidity up. this time, the temp is a steady 70 degrees, which is much better than the last few times (there was severe fluctuation due to weather in the area). is there anything that can be done to help things out? what is going wrong? help is much appreciated!

dude, if you use and inch of perlite across the bottom then add about 1/2 - 3/4 inch of water to it that should be all the humidity you need, unless your terranium is too big. And 70 degrees isn't really the correct temp, go buy a heating pad at target (around 10$) and set it up on a timer so you get in the range of 80 degrees, i generally rip off the proctevtive layer so i can just have it set on medium and have a timer trip it off every so often so it won't get too hot. And I never fan, just takin off the lid to look/harvest seems like it is enough.
