Casing w/ Ultrasonic Humidifer
    #2246429 - 01/16/04 05:04 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I am curious about how well this works...Was planning 1 large casing, 50/50+ style, using an 11 gal container, and 1 ultrasonic humidifier, linked to a couple 2 liter bottles to reduce water particles. Will this provide enough gas exchange if put on a timer to turn on for 1:45 every 1:45? Will this allow for too much humidity? Any way to make this feasible? Hoping I don't have to drop more dough and labor for a cool mist, or hand misting, bah!

Do you really need extra humidity with casings? I read somewhere on shroomery that the casing layer would provide enough moisture to the substrate??? :confused:

Fee, will that provide enough CO2 transfer?

I belive I once saw a post by Magash, said he had his ultrasonic on a 10 min timer every hour or so...anyone here have any experience with casing and ultrasonic humidifiers?

yeah, with casings, all you really have to worry about is them drying out...a misting once or twice a day is all you need...i've heard that the RH of casings actually needs to be lower than that of cakes say somwhere around the 85-90% range, rather than the 95% + with cakes.

I have some experience with a casing + ultrasonic. The humidifier sat in my closet and the casing gave me shroomies.
Try growing in a bag and then crumble/case.
In the co2 transfer thread in advanced, a reply spoke of a water gradient from the inside to outside of a mushroom fruitbody, 90% humidity was said to be optimal, anything less and the rate of fruitbody expansion bedomes too great. at higher humidities of course it slows down. Also mentioned is the fact that mushrooms can grow in 100% rh, as long as the air touching the sides is at slightly less than that.
