Fuck hydroton for casing 's I'm using perilite.
    #1792499 - 08/08/03 04:38 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Well my bitch-ass casing (perfect 50/50 mix has benn sitting around for~ 2 weeks and noting. I originally had perilite in but the stench sucked even though it was given off great humidity so I decided to use hydroton with air sticks to eliminate smell/fanning. well now there and a damn bit of humidity (and I haven't benn running the airpumps, which has filters on them to try and to biuld up humidity to see what the how the airsticks would affect it afterwards) in it and my casings (about 3 weeks old now) haven't done a damn thing afterwards. Before I was getting some moster mutated shroomes now I'm not getting a damn thing. The water level is more then an inch below, after being an inch less, of the hydroton level and not a damn thing. Fuck this from now on I'm just going to birth cakes and say fuck casings. Escpecially after seeing Magesh's pics. Sorry if I spelled your name wrong :tongue:, but I' pissed :mad:

Use vermiculite -- perlite makes the water go the wrong way.

Oh, are you actually humidifing the air around your casings with the perlite? You don't even need to -- they just need to be covered, but two each their own.

Perlite can get stinky; it just needs to be changed if it does.

not the high humidity, u just need more air exchange
hydronton puts out ASSLOADS of humidity, if u have EXTRA EXTRA air exchange u can compensate

ASSLOADS of humidity + EXTRA air exchange = VERY HAPPY MUSHROOMS

Sorry about the rambiling (I tend to do that on 13 xanax :nut:) but I was super fucked up so I hope this clarifies things a bit. What I meant to say was that I changed my perlite layer that the casing was sitting on to hydroton for convenience and better humidity. The problem I have now is that there is no humidity building up on the sides of my container like it was when I had the perilite in there. I figured that the water level was maybe too close to the top of the hydroton and that was reducing the evaperation rate. So I lowered the water level to about an 1.5 inches below the hydroton level and I'm still not getting a damn thing for humidity even without running my air pumps, which happen to have a kick-ass filter on them. Sorry about the confusion :frown: I would like to thank you for respondeing to my rambilings and if you have anymore advice, besides not posting while on tons of benzos :rolleyes: I'd apprecaite it. Again thank you.

I'll ask again -- why are you humidifying your casings? Just so you don't need to fan and mist them?

I just keep them covered and fan/mist every day and they're fine. As long as the casing, itself, doesn't dry out you don't need all that extra humidity in the air.

Casings make there own humigity man, You dont need no rocks or perlite. All you gotta do is mist and fan.

condensation does NOT = humidity
condensation is caused by temp diffrences inside and outside of the terrarium

it is NOT a reliable way to tell humidity
just leave the bubble wands on, and trust teh hydroton it works
