Newbie question B86543-Moscow
    #3191778 - 09/28/04 04:04 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

Hey there,
I've read all the main teks and done a good amount of research on this whole thing, but I am looking for some assurance that simple wet perlite would be enough for a chamber. All those of you who have used this method with success, please speak up! Originally, I was thinking of adding a fish tank bubblier in addition to the perlite, but since space is at a premium, I don't want to do anything that I don't have to. (Minimum humidity is 85%, right?)

Also, though I've gotten some info on condensation, I want to make absolutely sure that if and when the cakes are placed in the chamber/terrarium that they don't get rained on. This would be very bad for the involved parties. Should I just get a drip shield, regardless of the fact that that will limit growing space? Maybe I could just stick some of those mini-umbrellas you get with tropical drinks in the cakes (j/k..?). What do you guys normally do?

Thanks,
- J.

Ive had decent fruiting at ~85% although I would recommend a higher %'age as specified in the teks.

>(Minimum humidity is 85%, right?)

Depnds on what tek you are using. For casings 85% can be enough. For cakes 95%+ is needed.

Thanks. It will be the cake tek. So, to review: the following setup is a good idea..?:

- Layer of perlite
- Drip shield with hole for the bubblier reservoir
- Fishtank bubblier with reservoir


Is that right?
