Hygrometers tell humidity. Indirect light is fine. Spray the inside with lysol and let it air out, or wipe the walls with alcohol, or bleach, whatever.

Could I get those Hygrometers at regular plant shops. Do I keep it in the tank at all times and are they expensive?

Common hygrometers become inaccurate at reading the rh that you are testing for. So unless you find a really good one they are useless. Just eye ball it. If there is lots of condensation on the walls then the humidity is high.

Hey I read here that it says I can pick the shroom when the edge of the cap tears away from the stem. This means when it looks more like an open umbrella right and not a roundish ball and will the veil be brokena way automatically when this happens? and if a shroom hasnt grown in 4 days or so can I asume its an abort and pick it?


EDIT: Also my tank is 25 inches high, 24 inches wide, and 12 inches deep. Is this to big for the perlite strategy

Yes.

You can spot aborts when their caps start turning black.

Oven with dry the jars out too much.

The oven is tricky business, I suggest you stay away. If you are doing PF Tek a pot and boiling water is fine, with the water level half way up the jars. If yo uare paranoid you can always boil them longer.
