2 much H20 reducing RH
    #3193402 - 09/29/04 12:30 AM (12 years, 11 months ago)

? is this possible that there may be too much water in the fruiting chamber to reduce RH levels>? Or is it the outside drop in temp again?

By what method are you maintaining humidity?

If you are using perlite you can indeed have too much water. The perlite should be damp wiith the water level (if any) well below the top the perlite. If your perlite is completely submerged you lose the wicking/evaporating properties of the perlite.

Totally! I recommend never letting the water level get higher than half the depth of the perlite, as dog said and I reiterated you lose all your evaporative surface area with too much water. Outside temps will also play a role as cooler temps hold less moisture. GL
