Relative humidity during incubation
    #3187012 - 09/27/04 05:36 PM (13 years, 7 months ago)

Hi gang,
My friend Fernando had a question that he wanted me to relay to you. Fernando has started experimenting with fungus cultivation again. (He's done it once before, but in a different situation, which was modestly successful) As it is, he incoluted the jars a couple days ago and placed them in a small, closed, clean room with a space heater. He set the space heater to 78 degrees, otherwise the room would go down to about 60 a good deal of the time.

Fernando has a hygrometer, which indicated that the relative humidity in the room was at 40% when he checked it (during the day). I recall reading that it's good to have the humidity at 70% or more for incubation. Is this critical? Is it simply an "ideal" humidity level that will only affect the speed of colonization? Intuitively, it doesn't seem like it would make a huge difference, since the substrate is pretty well sealed off from the outside environment. Any answers are greatly appreciated.

yurp, sounds good, you may have slowed colonization anyways with the lower temps, make a tub in tub if possible...
