Humidity level in water incubator.
    #3342896 - 11/10/04 07:17 PM (13 years, 3 months ago)

I'm doing my PF style jars in a water incubator (bought from University Scientific),it's the type where one container fits into another which contains the water and heater to keep it at a constant tempereature. The only thing I noticed with this set up is that the humidity level is very high in the incubator between 80 + 90%. The mycelium growth is comming along nicely after 2 weeks however there seem to be some water droplets on the insides of the jars, possibly from the high humidity. After doing a search on this forum I discovered that the relative humidity should be kept between 50-70% for the incubation phase. It just seems that the water incubators naturally will have a high humidity, is this a real cause for concern? The temp is being held at a steady 82 to 84 degrees.

i had the same problem. you can keep the humidity lower by making holes in the inner tub (near the top, obviously) and also some in the outer tub, high up again.
