    #2735064 - 05/27/04 02:52 AM (12 years, 9 months ago)

i have the reg tote set up with perlite on the bottom. now if my humidity is too high i should run more air into the set up that would lower the humidity? do i got that right?

also i was thinking i have heard alot about coco coir. i was wondering could i replace the verm in the pf tek with coco coir or dose verm hold more moisture / holds moisture longer then the coco coir?

Yes, adding more air should drop the humiderty.
As to coco coir, most people preffer a 50/50 mix
using coco coir and verm.

So you are fruiting cakes? If so, I have never heard of anyone replacing verm with coir... but coir is used in casings regularly, that is probably where you heard about it

Also... why would you want to lower the humidity if you are fruiting cakes?

If your talking using coir instead of verm in the mix it would take a year to colonize. The coir is very fine and there would be very little air in the mix.
