Your humidity will be fine with that many cakes in the chamber just mist after fanning.Time it may take 7-21 days before first flush keep it fanned and misted you will be fine if your at 72 degrees no need to lower it more afoaf fruits into the 80's with no problems

I had to wait about 21 days for a flush once, but that's not normal. A week or two is usually good under optimum conditions. Don't worry if the temperature is 72 degrees, that's perfect for fruiting. You should go spend 60$ on a wireless thermo hygrometer from Radioshack, It's about +/- 1% relative humidity.'s one bad motherfucker.

cakes dont produce humidity, caseings do....
but dont worry about that, your perlite should do the job nicely... i had a hygorthingamabober once, but the fuckers are innaccurate when it reaches 80-90% humidity.. so in effect they are pretty much useless to us....

ya just gotta trust the perlite man... screw condensation.... trust the perlite.... as for temps. be happy you have 72 degrees..... im lucky if i can get mine down to 79.... u dont want lower than 72 degrees... that will slow things down me thinks....

oh another thing on perlite, i noticed perlite works best when there is little or NO standing water in the tank.... just soak the perlite then drain excess water then put in terrarium... it works great like that, ive always had 100% humidity with about 2 inches of perlite...

last but not least, it could be a while before u see any pins... im talkin weeks... so be patient.... if nothin happens in a month, u screwed up...
