Not enough humidity
    #2645669 - 05/06/04 03:25 PM (12 years, 6 months ago)

I have 9 cakes in a mid size rubbermaid tub and im having problems with getting the humidity high enough. I have little over 2 inches of perlite with about a 1/2 inch of water and the temps at about 72. I was thinking maybe i should raise the temp a little. For the humidity to be high enough for cakes i should see some condesation am i right? Any help would be appreciated.

Since you have a pretty deep layer of perlite I would suggest you take a clean spoon and run it through the perlite and make long trenches about an inch or so deep. The object here is to increase the amount of surface area. Not much point in having the perlite so deep if you still only use the surface to evaporate water into the air inside the chamber. This will make a difference ,but a fish tank air pump running a long air stone beneath the surface of the perlite will make all the difference. This will force air through the perlite thus creating higher humidity.(dont forget to filter the air somehow before it goes into the chamber.

Good Luck
