3rd try..what do you think? pics
    #3199410 - 09/30/04 11:58 AM (12 years, 2 months ago)

This is my third try with jars after my first 2 batches turned green. Used the oven tek and it seems to have worked really well. I live in a really, really old house with a damp basement, so I guess I will have to do this oven thing every time. I am so excited. Check out my jars. All of them are pretty much like this. How much longer do you think it will be. I set up my "chamber", but I cannot seem to get the humidity above 80%, so I am worried I won't have a working system before these are ready.

Looks like your on your way.PMP is the way to go for a 1st time grow.
Cost me $10 for 90qt sterlite container and $4 for perlite.Start spraying that basement and everywhere else with 5%Bleach/95% water.This is what I had to do.High humidity here.

I have a big plastic rubbermaid container and I have rigged my cool-mist humidifier to it like several people have told me to, but for some reason it gets up to about 80% humidity and will not go any higher. I did read about perlite, but I had already got all this other stuff....&#%$#. Can someone point me to a TEK using a perlite setup?

OK. Since I already have bought all this other stuff and have it all set up....does anyone think it might help with I added a container of perlite to chamber along with the humidifier....would that increase my humidity enough???

Pearlite TEK as described above would work wonders I'm sure... but what I usually do is just wet the pearlite and dump on the bottom of your container, smooth out. Lay down jars, put cakes on top... have a clear top for your light to penetrate, make sure it has a good seal, keep a temp/humidity gauge in there.. you're set! Fan out 1-3 times a day.
It works out very well.
