ok, I looked but did not find....I need a question answered please....

AFOAF has like 7 trays goin in an MC and is finding that the humidity is falling at night to below 50%......will this destroy his growth? or just slow it down.....he fixes the problem in the morning.....or should he go and get some perlite and place a tray of that inside....

thank u for any help....

Goodness. Tell your friend to tell thier friend to stick a 1" layer of drained perlite on the bottom of whatever kind of growth chamber it is.

Perlite, geolite, lava, ultrasonic humidifiers and cool mists work... hell, hand spraying the sides of the terrarium works well too. Search the Shroomery for any of these options to find what best fits your needs/budget.

Natural humidity levels vary. Shrooms still grow.

Casings are probably fine with 50% humidity... but the surface layer may need water from time to time. You will have to keep the surface of your casing moist. You don't want mud, but you don't want dirt either. The moisture in the casing layer is best if it stays in between moist. Not mud, not sand.
