misting and humidity
    #3315856 - 11/03/04 06:22 PM (12 years, 2 months ago)

I'm not really sure on a couple things about humidity..
I'm using a styrofoam cooler witha large syran windown in the top.
I have a few cakes that are in right now with a good layer of damp perlite on the bottom of the cooler. My question is will this be enough humidity or should i be spraying.. i've also read a few posts that say that spraying can screw your cakes up.. what should I be doin? also can I use tap water or should I use distilled?

spray after each fanning.  Fan 3-5 times a day.  More if you like. :wink:

Humidity using perlite alone would require you to seal that container up very well.  Make sure your syran window doesn't have any major air leaks and the lid sits on there well.

Also, I thought about using the foam cooler before...  Couple of reasons why I chose not to use them...  1.  It's tranluscent white.  It doesn't get dark enough in there for my taste...  2. The amount of real estate only gives me room for 2 well growing cakes or 3 if you really squeeze them...  Maybe I just saw the smaller ones...  3.  They are white inside...  reflects light like crazy and I didn't want mushrooms to be confused.

Anyways...  I found these large rubbermaids for $5.  Much better deal IMO.  Good luck!

Ok thanks man, My cooler is pretty good, I can fit 8 cakes for sure I know. the cooler is actually inside a closet, with a good door its totally dark in the closet even when its light in the room. but yeah i guess the white walls arent the greatest but hey, its makeshift and it'll do for my first I guess but thanks on the rubbermaid container tip:D
