C02 exchange?
    #1657165 - 06/23/03 11:54 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

I have some cakes going, they've been in the terrarium for one week and I see no pins, two of the cakes have slight blueing at the bottoms, but humidity is around 80%. I have two bubblers in the terrarium. I thought perhaps poor c02 exchange was stalling growth, so I removed the head from one of the pump hoses and I now have it pumping in fresh air, was this a good idea?

Fanning 2-3 times a day will work better. Your problem is the 80% humidity.

If they are sitting directly on your substrate, the bubbling may bruise (blue) your cake, elevate them....

Okay, so should I raise, or lower humidity? My cakes are sitting on the lids of the ball jars which are sitting on top of perlite, the water is just in a cup sitting on some perlite. Is this not right?

Magash, my setup looks pretty much like yours, with the exception of bubble stone placement, and perlite. GoodOlBattonAss, I raised the humidity to 95% and they seem to be doing much better, thanks. Also, Magash I saw some of your pot photos, I was wondering if you wouldn't mined PMing me some info about your setup, I'm thinking of moving my three small (5in) pot seedlings indoors. Thanks.
