Humidity measurement
    #309765 - 05/05/01 03:35 AM (23 years, 2 months ago)

How do you, growers, know the humidity is high enough without having a hygrometer? Does the condensation on the aquarium wall tell you the humidity is OK? Or is there any other method? And, what is the minimal humidity level necessary for good growth? I am about to give birth to my first cakes so I want to be sure the shrooms will live under optimal coinditions.
Thanks.

You can't tell by condensation. Best to buy decent gauge, but you could always make one instead.

Taken without permission from Paul Stamets' book, The Mushroom Cultivator.
yields.] SPAWN RUN: [1st stage of growth]
Relative Humidity 90%
Substrate Temp. 84-86 F.
[Thermal death limits at 106 F.]
Duration 10-14 days.
CO2 5000-10000 ppm
Fresh Air Exchanges 0 per hour.
Light Incubation in total darkness.
PRIMORDIA FORMATION:[pinhead formation]
Relative Humidity 90+%
Air Temperature 74-78 F.
Duration 6-10 days.
CO2 less than 5000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges 1-3 per hour.
[but rememeber this air MUST be free of contaminants such as dust.]
Light Diffuse natural or exposure for 12-16 hours/day of grow-lux type fluorescent high in blue spectra at the 480 nanometer wavelength.
[I find that a regular fluorescent works fine, but I do try to let my jars get some natural sunlight whenever possible -- making sure, of course, that the jars don't get too warm.]
CROPPING:
Relative Humidity 85-92%
Air Temperature 74-78 F.
CO2 less than 5000 ppm.
Fresh Air Exchanges 1-3 per hour.
[but be careful not to contaminate 'em!]
Flushing Pattern Every 5-8 days.
[this means a new crop or "flush" of shrooms should appear every 5 -8 days.]
Harvest Stage When the cap becomes convex and soon after the partial veil ruptures.
Light Indirect natural or same as above.
[hint: use same as above.]
Moisture Content of Mushrooms:
92% water
8% dry matter
P. cubensis have up to 1% psilocin and/or psilocybin per dried gram.
[I would estimate approx. double that for fresh 'shrooms]

You can a decent hygrometer/thermometer at Radio Shack. Part #63-1013. I got mine on sale for around $25. It has a resettable memory function that stores the high and low humidity and temperature readings between resets.

agree with the above--stop by radio shack and invest--it will save you from a lot of worrying.

here's a link to a humidity gauge with/o temp. looks nice (and cheap, too!)
