heating and himidifying the fruiting chamber
    #3239742 - 10/10/04 07:04 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

I've had my cakes in a rubber maid tub with perilite on the bottom, and it never moves from 75% humidity. 

I put a heating pad in there to see if heating the chamber would bring up the humidity, but it seemed to actually lower it.

I put a moist towel on the pad so the heat wouldn't be drying up the box, but to no avail.

I took the hydrogemeter out to test if it was working and all, and it did drop quite a bit.

I am at the end of my ideas, I have no idea why the perilite isn't working, or how to heat it properly without drying it out..a jar of water inside the box doesn't seem feasible as I don't know how to regulate the humidity with that or how to fit it in there with the cakes....

The only other thing I can think of is to get an ultrasonic humidifier, but that still leaves the question of heating.  Pads just seem dangerous...

what does everyone else do?

thanks for your suggestions :smile:

>it never moves from 75% humidity

What hygrometer do you use to measure the humidity? And, did you calibrate it?
