Perlite
    #1711736 - 07/13/03 05:13 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

I think this is more than likely a dumb question, but I need to know the answer. This morning around 9:30 a.m. I put perlite in my terrarium and wet it down with a full 2-liter bottle of water(just until it was moist with a little extra water collecting) But any ways I pulled all the perlite to one side tilted it up and drained all the excess water to the other side and soaked it up with a towel. Now this was roughly 8 hours ago. Should I wait until I actually see condensation in side until I place my cakes in there, or just do it now? Also, does that sound like the right amount of water to use?

the water should be half as deep as the perlite

it all depends on where u live, the temperature, the RH, etc on if there will be condensation on the walls... i never got condenstaion but still maintained a 92% RH...

so just put the cakes in there and make sure its the terranium is tightly sealed and u should be fine...

no, dont put water standing on the bottom... it will be more prone to disease...

just get a water bottle of h202/h20 and spray lightly... ive done this many times with success... a lot of the people havnt even grown shrooms and still try to give advise...
