Peat moss for humidification???
    #2349569 - 02/18/04 12:11 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Would using peat moss in the bottom of a tupperware work in the same manner as perlite for humidification purposes?

Yeah perlite humidifies. Probably the most common method of humidification.

I have used local wild moss as a casing layer for outdoor beds. If I were to try this indoors I would use washed and sterilized/pasteurized moss. I have actual thought about trying this in the past, perhaps I will. I don't see why it would not work as a bottom casing either. It's probably not the ideal casing, but it does work.

Here is a quote from this post in which moss is very successfully used outdoors. The last pic is my fave!.

http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Number=1610063&page=&view=&sb=5&o=&fpart=1&vc=1


"These following pics are perhaps the best pics I have ever taken. GSAfarmer and another friend have prepared a few outdoor beds. These pics are from two of the beds. The strain is an isolate from Louisiana, the isolation was done by GSAfarmer.









Here you can see a contamination...one of the few good contams. It seems that the compost used had some Pan. subb. mycelium in it. What a beautiful sight!!! Pan. subb's and cubensis growing side by side!



GSAfarmer deserves some props for these pics!!!

Joshua"

That was a very silly thing to say but,
Indoors, Skip has found that Coir make the better casing

Joshua, that is a cool pic.............
