humidity Q
    #1687896 - 07/05/03 01:38 PM (13 years, 5 months ago)

a friend of mine is going to be fruiting some casings soon. he'll be using wet perlite for humidification and was worried that the humidity might be too high as the mushrooms mature a little. what's the problem with high humidity? what problems might it cause?

high humidity causes aborts. and severely limits the amount of fruits per flush

i think i'll suggest that he covers the perlite with a trashbag when he starts to see the red\brown beginnings of the caps forming... how does that sound?

once you see hyphal knots, (little white nodules on the casing) induce pinning conditions.

pinning conditions (being light, air exchange, and high humidity) will be introduced when the casing is properly colonized.

the question is what to do after pins have formed. the humidity needs to be dropped a little, and i'm wondering if just covering the perlite with a trashbag after pins have formed will work?

I think hes better off removing some of the perlite, I think the perlite would still give off humidity even with a trash bag covering it, assuming that he just lined the bottom of the terrarium with it.
