Casing w/ perlite, couple questions.
    #3929559 - 03/17/05 10:22 AM (12 years, 15 days ago)

when I start doing my casing I'm reading that you need to have high humidity (95%) to start pinning. I was wondering, would it work if I was to put some perlite in a strainer or something, spray with water then put it onto a big dinner plate? Instead of laying perlite all on the bottom and making a mess? the just put my casings on top of the plates? Should work? Any Suggestions?

Thanks,
Cray
:peace:

It would work if done right..bgut remember the imporant part to get perlite to work right is exposing the most surface area of it to the air. If its only under the casings, and theres less surface area to begin with (since your not covering the whole bottom), your humidity may suffer.

For easy cleanup, open a trashbag and line the inside of the tub with it like ti were a trash can, then put the perlite in there (after rinsing in a strainer, get the powder off and that will help the mess) and casings on top...then you just pull out and dump the whole bag when its time...

It would...if its enough surface area...it really depends on how big the disk is, how big the chamber your trying to humidify is, your ambiant humidity in your house/state/country, and how much of the perlite you cover with the casing trays.

Usually, it doesnt work because when you pack in casings, you already have limited surface area and all you have is there perlite between the casings exposed to the air...

it's about 60% in my house, I live in vermont, freakin cold here. I just might end up dump some perlite in there, after it's been in the stariner, and after I get some pins, take the perlite out? Sound ok? Let me know!

Thanks!
