Too Much Perlite? HELP!
    #1983864 - 10/06/03 02:44 PM (14 years, 20 days ago)

Hey everyone. I have, what I think will be, a simple question for all of you gurus out there. My friend has a rubbermade tank with perlite in the bottom. there is a constant humidity of approx 98%. He wants to drop some fully colonized cakes in there but said that he read something saying you want to have 90-95% humidity. Is 98% too much, and if so, how does he lower the humidity? Also, what, in your opinions, is the ideal temperature to grow mushies off of cakes. Thanks in advance guys.

98% should be fine for cakes.....ideal temp for fruiting is around 74....adding more water to the perlite may actually help lower humidity but I"m not sure on that..

^^^^

I don't see why it would. Just fan every 2 hours to keep the humidity down.

98% is good -- you want as much as you can get with cakes.
