Well...I've read that too much water causes your humidity to acually drop and that to little is even worse...Well...let's say that i have 4 inches of perlite (whoops) and about an inch of water (the perlite's floating on it)...There's a bubble rock wand thing on the bottom....Well i thought that i fucked myself so i just got up and left. I cracked the top (haven't made a hole for the tube yet) and i just left it there...I come back 30 mintues later and i've got probably about 95% humidity....I'm guessing that i did something right, any one care to tell me what's going on ? :laugh:

You lost me with 4 inches perlite, 1 inch water and the perlite is floating??? IME there is no way 4 inches of perlite would do that with 1 in water. But if you have 95% humidity, you are doing fine for cakes......GL

I ran into problems with that much water with the perlite. After a few attempts I add water to the perlite, mix thoroughly, and when I see the water start to accumulate at the bottom when its well soaked I stop. Also I really hate the fact that with that much water whatever you got on top moves with any movement of the FC.
