humidification + casings?
    #2345360 - 02/17/04 01:14 PM (14 years, 3 months ago)

if some one were to use a 66 qt terrarium that holds 3 6.5" x 10" casings, would a 1.5 in layer of perlite with 1/4" of water be over kill?

Yes and no. In theory casings do not require extra humidity because they generate their own.  If people do humidify their chambers it is with a coolmist humidifier. Perlite can be used but my dog suggest you don't. From his experience it was a mess and completly unneccesary.  If a humidifier on a timer is not an option my dog suggest hand spraying three to four times a day and fan as well. But he's just a dog.....whats he know? :razz:

I agree with the dog. Skip the perlite.

PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

I run cool mist plus circulating PC fan with about 25 minutes of ultrasonic every 4 hours. The PC fan turns off when the cool mist cycles on to prevent it from ruining the fan. The cool mist and the PC fan produce a very high relative humidity, but it is not quite at 100% apparently because I do get a tiny bit of evaporation (I'd guess the two end up producing maybe 98% relative humidity). This tiny, tiny bit of evaporation is actually very desirable for a cased tray and produces better formed mushrooms.
