Help, My babies are drying out
    #311500 - 05/07/01 06:33 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

Hello, 2 dayds ago i filled my terrarium with fresh wet perlite. And today I added my casings. But I only have condensation on the sides of the terrarium and not on the top, and its slowing fading aay as though the humidity is lowering. Its just a regular large tuperware container with wet perlite on the bottom, about 2 inches. I need any help about humidity solutions ASAP before they die.
Also How long should I fan for . Im fanninh 3 times a day

You really can`t judge humidity by condensation. Are you misting your casings?

Well, I guess I just don`t get it. What makes you think they`re in trouble?

yea the perlite is still wet. I was just worried because I heard that when condensation was all over the container, the humidity was just right. And it was not, so I thought I had a problem with the Humidity

this method works the best, for me anyways ;)

k here goes: fan your set up five times a day if you can. if not then the three you are doin is fine. then spray the sides only of the grow chamber with a hand spray bottle every other time you fan. so the first time you fan in the day spray the sides, then the last time you fan spray the sides. keep the perlite, and this is plenty of humidity. good luck with it and remember that patience is a virtue
