Crap! Moisture over my casing.
    #3135352 - 09/14/04 06:48 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Yesterday I put a heating belt under my PMP because it was far too cold (55). Today I just checked, and the temp is up to 65, but I've got drops of water all over my casing layer, including the mycelium.

How bad is this, and how could I possibly fix it?

It may not be horrible if they are very small droplets and no puddles, you could turn off the bubbler so there is no added humidity, forcing the air to accept moisture from the casing surface. Especially turn the bubbler off and don't spray while you heat it the remaining 10 degrees. Fan lots. Once it's drier again then resume bubbler action.

I'm over my limit, but here's one picture:

I am not an expert so I'll leave the picture judging up to one of the masters. I will say it looks maybe just a little too much, just a little less and it'd be perfect. So my remedies from above probably still stand. Let's see what others say.

BIt much but looks ok. Fan more when it looks like that. The insertation of dry air will dry up the beads.

Your casing is safe. It rains in nature, right?
