Humidification Problems
    #2197623 - 12/23/03 01:03 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

Hi there. My friend is fruiting PF cakes in a rubbermaid terrarium using perlite for humidification. For the first flush everything within the terrarium looked good, usually moisture running down the walls due to the high humidity. After the first flush, he noticed that there was no longer any moisture running down the walls. He has about 2 inches of perlite and he had about 1 inch of water so he took some water out, now there is about 1/2 of water to 2 inch of perlite, like he read. The perlite on top is evenly moist, so why is he getting no humidity in his terrarium? The cakes seemed to be stalling while the humidity is so low, what should he do?

Well make sure your lid is sealed, my friends lid wasn't properly sealed once and that made for little to no humidity, and try adding another half inch to an inch of water.

You can use draft excluder
around the lid to seal it, thats
the stuff people use on doors and
windows to keep out the drafts.
I also smear the lid with vasoline
to stop the water beading on the lid
and dripping onto the shrooms.

try a little heat.
I had a problem last year with my cool mists not wanting to work well because I was using the heat from the furnace to heat the cool mist tanks.

When summer came I no longer had a heat supply so I build a fish heater into the cool mist to fix the problem.
A heating pad might help u.

The only thing i dislike about vasoline is it will cause mutations on the fruits. it does work though


You may say Im a dreamer,
but Im not the only one,
I hope some day you'll join us,
And the world will live as one.
