Yea, i heard about using perlite, and want to do that acually b/c i have so much of it already....Hm...Well, you wouldn't have to use any wands would you, perlite by its self creates lots of moisture when its just damp.....Would i be able to jus put perlite on the bottle and then put my cake in there while it's still in my pan? Well thankx 4 the help =)

lava rocks work fine. just make sure to rinse the hell out of them before using them. they are pretty messy out-of-the-bag.

Why don't you just use bleached-white paper towels? As long ad they don't touch the cake, you are all set. They are disposable, cheap, have great surface area, and easily add moisture to the air.

(If you humidity is 90% then you don't have to sit the cakes on a moist surface. Throw them in a hand made tinfoil plate.)

Perlite puts out rh.Mist twice a day. Have never had a wand.Am going to try one,just to see.Been using the same perlite for 9 months.Just spray 70% alcohol between grows.

It made my pans rust fast.I now put alum foil on bottom. GL

Lava is quite inferior to the hydrotons (grorocs) surface area. It actually blocks humidity rising in a PMP unless it's broken up into rather small chunks which BTW is not the way it usually comes. I would not recommend it if you are at all serious in this hobby but if it's an option then by all means GL.
(perlite=total surface area but slightly more mess) :wink:
