terrarium quick question!!
    #3238581 - 10/10/04 08:19 AM (12 years, 6 months ago)

hi guys i just bought another rubbermaid to make it my new terrarium. i already have 3 PMPs but now i have many casings to fruit so it's not wise to put them in a new PMP because they will cover the whole surface of perlite so the pumps with the wands won't do the job.
so what would be the best to do to a terarrium which will have a surface FULL of casings? should i just make 2 holes in each side in the level a little above the perlite?

If thebox is full of casings, you don't need and perlite in there. Just spray the casing surface so it stays moist at all times.

Yes keep them hydrated until the myc starts poking through then leave them until pins are set. GL

Hmm, so when fruiting you don't need a relatively high RH? I've always heard 80-95%. This would save me a lot of trouble.

Yes. Shrooms demand alot of water with maturing if they don't get it from the casing they will deplete the casings substrate which is unnecessary IMHO they certainly won't get enough from the surrounding air. Mushrooms just love high RH and misting that IS their environment of preference! During pinsetting let nature shine by doing it's thing. (no misting) :wink: GL
