warmth/humidity
    #1873405 - 09/02/03 04:20 AM (13 years, 9 months ago)

i seem to be having a bit of trouble with humidity for some reason.  in the past, i've never had trouble keeping my terrarium (aquarium w/perlite) warm and humid.  but this time around, i'm getting quite a bit of water condensation on the inside...big drops, not mist as i'm used to.  also, my fruit is growing VEEERY slow.

i am airing out twice a day and sealing the top with wet saran wrap (as usual).  do i need to keep the terrarium warmer?  should i start misting?  any advice is much appreciated.  :smile:

thank you!

Ehm, could you do some measurements, temp and rH? Maybe that'll help finding out why the mushies are growing so slow.

with cakes you want high humidity, like upper 90s in humidity. its casings that require lower humidity. i think your problem with slow growth is not enough air/gaseous exchange. try airing like 4 or five times aday. the more you fan it the better results you will get. also make sure to give it 12 hours of light, it is ideal for optimal growth.
