    #3693282 - 01/28/05 01:50 PM (11 years, 10 months ago)

I set up my terrarium like the poor mands pod, I used perlite, about 4 inches, and 1 inch of water. My humidty gauge is showing 98% (not bad) but the temp says its 59F! that cant be right...But I used cold water in the terrarium too. What should I do?

If you just set it up you have to wait 24 hours then look at what you got to work with.

Well, I setup it up last night. Not 24 hours though. It is not in its place. I am going to put it in another room. I felt the perlite--it is freezing. I set the bin over our heating vent to try to warm the water a bit.

wait a while... if the temp is still low, get yourself a 50W submersible aquarium heater from petco or petsmart. At the most I think they are $15

115 volts and 60hz is fine as far as power/work goes. Submersible, as in can be fully submerged underwater

Your ambient temp will have to be close to the fruiting temp or you'll have problems, let me tell ya!

I meant outside your terarrium. If the air outside your terarrium is 72deg then eventually in time the terarrium will balance out to equal 72deg, unless you have contributors like sources of heat or cold. A light will give off heat, and cool mists usually cool things down a bit. There are a lot of factors that will contribute to your Ter. temp and how much it fluctuates.

It sounded like your ambient temp was lower than 72deg. Mine is 50 which makes it extremely hard to raise it and maintain a mid 70's temp.GL

Well I am going to get a heater thing. The ambient temp around here is pretty much 72F. I think the hygrometer temp is wrong because it is sitting on the perlite, and the perlite is cold. It is pretty warm in the terrarium.
