Am I OK?
    #3663656 - 01/22/05 07:27 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

A casing sitting in new experimental terrarium for one week. Was put in once myc was seen in a few valleys. Temps fluctuate btw 62 - 74 deg. Humidity=lots of condensation everywhere but guages read 80 or more? Casing is always wet so not much spraying and plenty of fresh air exchange. Result after one week= couple more valleys show myc which is white, but no pinning. Is patience the key here or is change in order. BTW this is first grain casing.

Hey NOS,

Sounds like you have all bases covered except temperature. That's a pretty big variation in temps-anything you can do to control this at all such as a heat pad, or maybe build a TnT for your terrarium? Air exchanges and humidity look good, although an accurate RH gauge wouldn't hurt. But definitely try to get that temp as close to steady mid-70's as you can.

Just be patient at this point, I've had casings take up to 2 weeks to pin in IDEAL conditions, that's with a steady 75F, 95% rh, and plenty of air exchange.

here is some info on how to calibrate your hydrometer (just to be sure)
To measure humidity
You could take two temperature readings....one with a wet(use room temperature water) piece of cotton tied to the bulb and one with a dry thermometer.
as described here.
http://www.warren-wilson.edu/~physics/PhysSci/humidity_Pressure/RelHumidity.htm
and compare the results on the table here.
http://www.warren-wilson.edu/%7Ephysics/PhysSci/humidity_Pressure/Rel_Humidity_Table.htm
When taking the temp in a fruiting chamber use a little battery powered fan to blow on the wet bulb's sock...and the water you use for the sock must be the temp that the grow chamber/incubator is.Put a small jar of water in it beforehand and let it's temperature get to that of the chamber's.You can use the same thermometer for both readings or use two thermometers at the same time.
But make sure they are both accurate or it'll screw up the reading.
