Colonization humidity too high...how do i lower it
    #328806 - 05/29/01 03:45 PM (17 years, 2 months ago)

I just innocluated my jars and made an incubator exactly to the specifications at Alien's Tek:


Have a large tupperware container filled with 2 inches of water and 1/8 cup hydrogen peroxide, and have a submersible aquarium heater at the bottom tuned to a constant 82 degrees.

I drilled 12 1 '' holes in the tupperware's lid and duct taped a coffee filter over it, and have a fan blowing room temperature air through the coffee filter. I use a digital thermometer/hygrometer to take readings of temperature and humidity levels. The temperature levels are consistent at 82-83 degrees, but the humidity is 99% without the fan, 90 percent with the fan blowing air into the container, but when i put the hygrometer inside the smaller tupperware container floating in the water housing the jars, its 99% humidity in there.

Is this too much humidity for colonization? I read that the humidity should be around 80-85 percent. How do i lower humidity? I have holes drilled all around underneath the lid of the smaller tupperware container. Should i put another coffee filter type air filter on the lid of the insider tupperware container? Lower the temperature of the submersible heater in the water? Take the water and heater out completely? I followed the steps to a T and even added my own fan yet the insider tupperware remains at a consistent 99% humidity. Will this hurt or stall the colonization process or am i cool?

The humidity should we 90-95 for cakes when they are FRUITING, not during colonization.
During colonisation humidity doesn?t matter much.
