Ok Ive birthed 5 cakes,  24 hrs ago, 2 already have 3 little shrooms about and inch long, nice brownish heads growing.  But my Humidity on my $5 gauge says 85%. (It is out by -2%). There is condensation on the walls, not on the clear new acrylic lid yet as I just put it on. Blue-tac is used to make it completely airtight.Do you think the humidity is higher than what it is reading as the babies look healthy ? Im using Perlite 2 inchs by 3/4inch water(1:200 bleach).

I just got a timer for the light set on 12/12.

Thanks people!

:sun:

Those gauges are notoriously off and what I've seen they usually max at 85% or at least that what most people say so I'll tend to believe that. Are your cakes double ended with verm or 50/50? If so make sure the casing is kept pretty moist to the point where it glistens with moisture. Don't forget lots of fanning for bigger flushes/yields with a misting after each fanning. :wink: Sounds like ya got it going! WTG!!! and GL

Thanks dcyans!


Nah Just following the PF-TEK 4 SM's to the letter, just a straight birth sitting on the foil lid with lots of fanning and light. But I will now add misting after a fanning.
