perlite casing
    #3265037 - 10/22/04 06:15 PM (12 years, 4 months ago)

i'm going to put my casing in a rubbermaid with perlite/bubble wands, air pump, etc. 2 quick questions. If i can't get a heating pad to bump the temp up 10-12 degrees, what have some people come up to do instead? the 2nd question is will the perlite in this chamber produce mad humidity? i thought you needed 92...and from what i've read and heard, perlite like the big triple digits. thanks guys

You drop the temperature from incubation to fruit... not sure why you would want to raise it. But none the less, heating pads produce hot spots and uneven heating that will fluctuate. Be careful. As for Perlite, it gets close to 100% and casings fruit fine in it. It's all I use. I think it's what one of the mods uses as well.

Eh, tub-in-tub incubator? Magash's tek is good here... it was just bumped today so just scroll down the lists. Also, you don't need humidity during colonization. Only fruiting.

when your casing starts to pin keep the RH close to %100,but when the pins develop lower back down to about 92-94% RH...casing dont need as much humidity as cakes P3K

what did you incubate the jars in then? just throw some foil over the moistened casing and put it back in for a couple of days..

Back down about 6-8% humidity? is that easy to do or even to measure accurately afterwards?

No that wouldn't be ok. A fish tank heater goes crazy when it's not under water. And your perlite won't be under water.
