100% Humidity Too Much For Casing?
    #2296813 - 02/03/04 10:45 AM (12 years, 10 months ago)

AFOAF Asks:

After having problems regulating my hygrometers, and having Rh fluctuate up and down, my problems have been solved. Now my Rh is at 100% for my casing (or as my hygro reads, 'High' hehe).

I'm trying to get the casing to pin right now...

Is 100% too much? There's condensation everywhere, but so fine that I doubt water would drop onto the casing, or shrooms, once they start.

I'm using perlite/water/bubblers/fish tank heater at 80degrees for humidity. Not to worry, the actual terranium is at 74-75 degrees for fruiting.

I have a feeling 95% was supposed to be the top Rh you wanted, but at the same time, I think that depended on the type of humidification you used.

I've mucked around enough to want to leave it alone now, so I'm hoping this will be fine...

You nailed it on the last sentence. Just leave it alone.

I have damn near the same stats rockin' in my terrarium and I'm into my second flush with already well over 30 grams dry.

That's what I thought.... C ool beans...

I do have to say the actual casing itself is lookin' pretty sweet for a first try. Only bad thing is my substrate is thin, so sounds like I'll be getting smaller fruits. But considering my last attempt was just straight cakes, I think I'll be pleasantly surprised by the yields of a BRF casing =)....

I keep mine in the high 90s and it seems to be ok I guess.

Yeah, I'm just awaiting pins still... It's been 4 days now, but at the beginning my temps were up and down...

My mycelium is nice and even everywhere in the valleys. I just hope the mycelium has stopped growing. In one corner it's a little thicker than everywhere else, but that's not much of a concern...

73-75 degrees is my temp range.

I figure if the myc keeps growing, by tomorrow sometime I'll probably cold-shock to prevent overlay.

Though one night I left the window open and the temps dropped to 66 so I'd assume that would be a nice cold shock sort of....

thats a good idea about overlay but it took my casing a week and a half to start to pin

Yeah, I'm really not worried about it. I just know to keep an eye on excessive myc growth. =)
