as i get my temp issues resolved, i was wondering if the temp creeping into the 60's a few degrees at night would act as a natural recurring mini-coldshock. Is this a stretch? Logic says not really, but i was wondering what you cats thought about it.

it'll only slow down your growth, they'll still fruit at those temperatures. not a mini-cold shock.

good luck! :smile:

well mine dropped to the low 60s once and yes it did seem to inniciate pinning but dropping them every night i think would probably slow growth and cause more aborts than needed

ok cool...also, without having to start another thread, i found patches of cobweb mold last night, cleared about 10 spots out of my casing this morning, and while doing it realized that fuckin a, my casing is realllly moist. This is why. my hygrometer's been bunk and doesn't read humidity....at ALL correctly. when i thought i didn't have enough, i definately had too much. Also, i've been misting after fanning, and this combined with too much humidity has caused my casing soil to become very very moist. even the substrate undrneath is the moist sa well. IS THERE A WAY TO SAVE THIS CASING!!!! I took some water out of the perlite, and i'm going to fan every hour. any other help please>???

i read somewhere that you can use paper towels to soak up some of the extra water, but i would wait unit ll someone with more experience reads this

Get yourself an air pump and some bubble wands to place on the sides of your fruiting chamber. This will help stir the air more then fanning once per hour, less work involved also.

I dont know where all this papertowel nonsense came from (I know it wasnt from you, but its been said several times and its not a good idea) , but please refrain from using them, if you need to, leave your lid slightly ajar, or better yet cut some 1" diameter holes about where your perlite lair goes. Dont cover with tyvek or polyfill yet, because you are trying to dry your chamber out, cover it with something that will block contams but will alow humidity to escape, then once your levels are ok cover the holes with polyfill or tyvek to allow gas release and prevent any further loss of h20. Its all about prep. Whats the size of your fruiting chamber? How much perlite + water was in it?

no i think you misunderstood. if your casings are as wet as it sounds just by setting a paper towel on it for a few minutes should wick out some of the extra water

my friting chamber is 2' long'1' wide, and 8 inches high. ther's 2" of perlite and i had WAY too much water in it before, so it's under an inch now. so.....laying paper towels on top to soak some excess wetness up? or is there a different way to get the moisture out of the soil.

tick.....tock.......

another question...considering the casing soil is deep...there's about an inch or so on top...that means there's a good amount of water in there as opposed to a less deep layer...ha, less deep. so does that mean the substrate sandwiches in the middle could be destroyed if it's too moist? Is there any way to save mycelium if it gets water in it? Maybe take the casing layer off....do a magic trick, and put new casing on? I'm worried this casing has been saturated to death.

sorry, but another idea comes to mind...would shining my lamp on it be harmful other than helping to dry it out...which is what i need desperately right now. THANKS!
