casings and humidity
    #2480360 - 03/29/04 04:59 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

Hey all;

Casings need less humidifying than cakes, as they produce more humidity. However, what would be the effect of placing several large casings in a PMP with airpumps and geolite out of necessity? The geolite can't really be removed or the airpumps and heater won't work properly... what would the effect of excess humidity be on the casings? Obviously this isn't an ideal situation, but any opinions will be greatly appreciated.

It may sound strange, but im almost 99% sure that you will get very small, fully grown mushrooms, and alot of aborts. The humitidy in my friends terrarium was extremely high, before he bought a hygrometer, and both of his casings fruited very small shrooms and a lot of aborts.

Casings are said not to need much humiderty due
to the amount of water they already hold being
enougth for a good flush. but I keep the humiderty high
for my casings, as shrooms naturally like it damp and
humid.

Works fine for me, so I say do it. Put the casings in a pmp to
fruit :thumbup:

Sorry to go against you nickster, but that hasnt been the case for me.

Unsure, It does somtimes happen to me too.


One thing is air exchange, with a pmp you have
constant air exchange from the air line, this helps a lot.

My casings are in high humidity ( over 90 im sure ) they do alright. I got fish tank bubblers running 24/7 in Pearlite at the bottom of the tank, no heater though...

I keep my casings at a constant 90-93% and the mushies love it.

Penalties against drug use should not be more damaging to an individual than the use of the drug itself. Nowhere is this more clear than in the laws against the possession of marijuana and mushrooms in private for personal use.
