Another humidity question...
    #3816930 - 02/22/05 03:11 PM (11 years, 7 months ago)

Alright, my deepest thanks go out to all those who answered my last post about humidity problems. This is a great community with alot of helpful folks, but I have one last question. If I fail to get the humidity above 80%, what adverse effects will there be? There is already a small amount of white fuzz growing on little bumps (I'm guessing the bumps are where the primordia are forming?). Will this prevent growth? Or will the cakes still fruit properly? All responses are greatly appreciated, you guys are wonderful.

If your cakes are knoting and fuzzing up, your humidity is high enough regardless what the hygrometer says. A sure sign of low humidity would be the cakes having a blueish tint. The knots sound like primordia forming and the fuzz won't hurt them. So I would just keep going making sure they get fresh air 3 or 4 times a day, and light for 8 to 12 hours a day too. Good luck to ya.

Cakes will dry out and bruise if the humidity is to low. If you are getting fuzzy growth, then your humidity is fine.
