PMP Humidity Casing too high?
    #2736501 - 05/27/04 01:35 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I have a casing in a PMP that is keeping the humidity at 99%.  Is this going to greatly fuck things up?  Should I just try to fan a few times a day or should I cut a hole in the top (if so, how big?)  Its a 10 gal rubbermaid w/ 4 inches of geolite btw.  Or should I remove some of the geolite?  Or should I lower the water level?  Which method would you guys reccomend?

Thanks :smile:

I keep my humidity in the high 90s all the time.

If you want to lower it, but once again I never feel the need. Put two holes in the top of your pod about a inch in size. Then take two pieces of rubber and put a screw threw em and put them over the holes in a way that you can slide em over the holes making them bigger or smaller. This way you can control the humidity. The holes can also be placed on the sides of the chamber.

Never needed it myself but tested it out and it worked.

Do you ever mist your casings when waiting for pinning?

If the coir lightens a little and shows that they need it. Maby 1 to 3 mistings in summer often none in winter.

Total, but go by the color of your coir or whatever you use.
