a few questions regarding my project
    #2131129 - 11/23/03 09:40 PM (13 years, 19 days ago)

first of all I have one little mushy that has headed straight down toward my can lid, what should I do about that guy? also about 1/3 of my cakes have become active and the others havent shown any progress since I put them in the terrarium 2 weeks ago, should I worry? finally, the only pinning I have witnessed so far has been from the bottom of my cakes, nothing from the top, is this a problem?

Things sound fine to me.

The pin is probably turned down due to the reflection of the perlite/jar lid.

Keep the humidity high .. the other ones should start fruitng soon.

I've only managed to keep humidity at around 75-82% will this work?

What are you using to keep high humidity? And how much light are you giving them? Pinning only at the bottom happens often, it's nothing to worry about, it just happens.. Use perlite (2.50$ from lowes home imporvement) to get a cheap and easy way to keep humidy at 95 to 99%.

how often do you fan the chamber, how big is it as well? Is it airtight?

I have found that having an air pump dries out the air reducing humidity. I would place proper humidity level over adequate ventilation. I would suggest, in my humble opinion that you manually induce a humid environment; i.e. use a spray bottle. Keep the sides of your terrium wet the perlite will disperse the water as it runs down the side of you tank. I have read lot of opinions on what the perfect humidity level should be; personally I think 90 RH is optimal.
