Will this work?
    #397574 - 09/18/01 05:22 PM (19 years, 7 months ago)

My buddy scrapped the cakes in a terrarium method and has now cased his cakes using the 50/50 casing method. Instead of using a fish tank aquarium, he is using a large Sterilite tub with perlite on the bottom with the casings on top. Does anyone foresee any problems with this? Will it work? One other question, how do you make humidity in the tub? Misting or will the casings retain enough humidity from the damp vermiculite? Should the perlite be moistened? Those who know, please share your knowledge! Thanks in advance.

my friend, you are supposed to make the perlite very moist. thsat is what makes humidity, and it works great if you fan it a couple times a day. as far as u have described, it seems that it will work great. what u described is EXACTLY how my setup is :-)
