Casing Terranium Humidity
    #2280102 - 01/28/04 08:41 AM (20 years, 3 months ago)

AFOAF Wanted Me To Post This:

So three days ago, I crumbled up all my cakes, and cased them with 60/40 verm/coco and put foil on top, and stuck it in my terranium, which is a small two storey greenhouse....

So this morning I checked it out and the mycelium is creeping to the the top in a few spots, so within a day or two I will yank the foil off and initiate pinning.

What I wanted to know is this, how high should the humidity be in the terranium for a casing.... I've looked in the online faq's and stuff, and it seems the concensus is anywhere between 81% and 95% humidity in the terranium....

The reason why I ask is this.... I have a plateau in the humidity I can reach in this little greenhouse. in the bottom tray, I have two trays full of perlite and water (with a dash of hydrogen perox.) with aquarium bubblers in each.

When I initially tested this out, the max humidity I could reach was 88%....

Unfortunately I don't have much money to put towards a fogger or anything, so if 88% is not good enough, any tips on how to boost it a bit would be great....

Thanks

for casings thats what you want between 85 and 90 so you are perfect. Good luck are you patching you casing I would youll get a much better pinset.

Perfect... I know sometimes the RH fluctuated between 77% and 88%, but I think that will stabilize after a few days, I only did a quick check over 24 hours to see what I could get it up to....

I did not patch because I left my soil out after casing so it was no longer sterile....

Since it's already been 3 days, would it be best to make a small batch of patch soil, or to just initiate pinning tomorrow?

he means you patch the first aggresive bit of mycelium that pokes through. This gives the rest time to catch up and allows for even pinning throughout the casing layer, which is important. Hyphal Knots are little small balls that form right before you will see the presence of pins
