need more humidity
    #1811327 - 08/13/03 10:49 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I'm using the tupperware (poor man's) pod for the first time and the humidity is only at 81%.  It's bubbling just fine though and the temp is 75.  Any suggestions would be MUCH appreciated. :confused:

Are you using a good hygrometer? Most of the less expensive ones are unreliable and not to be trusted.

It's been running for about an hour. Haven't put the cakes in yet. I'm waiting for the rh to climb. It just went up to 82%! Maybe I'm just too impatient. Think it'll keep climbing?

I'm using hydroton and a nice digital hygrometer from a cigar shop.

your hydromomoterthingamombobthingie is probably a piece of shit, they all are...
"smell" the air (open the chamber and take a whiff of the air)
if its really damp and moist = 100%

thats how i tell.. i smell the air..
i can tell 100% from not 100% :P

101% is too much. the closer the better in the case of cakes.

what is this 'hydroton'??? is it a perlite replacement or a water additive?

Hydroton is a cheaper version of geolite. They are small round porous stone pebbles that allow air (gasses) to flow through them (alot like lava rocks). They are used in hydroponic growing.

cool thanks. i know what geolite is i just never heard if hydratron.

and being, you dont really need to seal a rubbermaid tub; unless youre doing cakes and need ultimate humidity.... it will stay humid enough for a casing fro shizzle.

but if you really feel inclined go to k-mart and get 1/2" weatherstripping for sealing around doors and storm windows and shit an stick that to your lid where the tub meets it

Negetive. You only need 80% or so terrarium humidity with casings.

You did not waste money, the cigar shop hygrometers are of good quality and reliability. But if you don't want it, pm me and i'll take it off of your hands :wink:
