Perlite + spraying
    #3646699 - 01/19/05 02:00 AM (12 years, 5 months ago)

How much hand spraying would you guys think would be necessary when using perlite?

The reason I am asking is cause I have sprayed pretty liberally(6+ times a day). I am in to my 3rd flush on several cakes and my grow chamber has a lot more water accumulated in the perlite layer. So I am assuming I am spraying too much.

Thanks.

I never sprayed at all when I used perlite. It kept the humidity high enough so that I didn't have to.

I was wondering if I even needed to, but I wanted to assure that my humidity was high enough. I guess I will try cutting back some and see what happens. Thanks.

my hygrometer only measures up to 95% and it always say 95% in my perlite system. actual humidity is probably higher than that, maybe even too much, that's why i never spray...

i have heard it said that casings can benefit from spraying before the pinset comes up, and in between flushes, even with perlite. is there truth to this? it seems logical to me and the cat.
