Ive got a casing idea.. why wont it work?
    #1731006 - 07/19/03 10:35 PM (13 years, 4 months ago)

i was thinking.. .for cakes and casings, would u be able to do what u did for a terranium to birth the cakes? for excample, could you take a 10 gallon rubbermaid, fill it w/ 2 inches of water, pput a aquarium heater in it, but instead of like 80 degrees, set it to like 70 and put a smaller rubbermaid inside with the cakes on.. some perlite? and give them a few hours of light a day..

couldnt u just get the same amount of humidity that way? with an aquarium heater?

Well, the regular perlite in a rubbermaid sounds awefully easy to me also, but it works right? One thing you might consider, possibly insulating the cakes from the perlite (it will be considerably warmer than the air). But, you dont want to cover up the perlite too much or you will lose surface area (key to humidity).

I suggest getting a rack type setup to isolate them far away from the perlite.

One easy way I've found to eliminate perlite is to put a container of water in the chamber with an awuarium powerhead in it..The powerheads have an inlet that you can attach a small air pump to... the constant flow of aerated water gives me 95-100% Rh in a 22 gallon rubbermaid

Isolating your perlite is a nice idea, then you will not have to fuck with contam spores entering you perlite and making a nice home for you next batch of cakes to deal with, my dawg says. What does this have to do with casing?

the cup would give less surface area just like jars lids on the perlite.perlite need surface to work the more perlite expose the higher your humidity will be.when you put things on the perlite your soffocating it,no water will evporate.the heater might be good idea but you don't want it to hot in there, sounds like it might be better for the winter mouths.if it's 90'S outside your gonna cook those cakes/casings i've tried a heating pad and i fucked my self,most aquarium heat's are submursable aren't they?so putting in perlite and if it were to dry out you might burn the house down.we don't that.good luck!

the suspending rack is a good way to go.
