Little Or No Condensation?
    #4057981 - 04/15/05 10:16 AM (13 years, 2 months ago)

I just built the poor-man's pod terrarium as found in the terrarium section and I am about ready to transfer some cakes. The thing is, I am waiting for there to be some condensation on the walls of the chamber and so far, there is barely any, or none at all. I read in another post that you can have good humidity without any condensation, so I would like a confirm on this before I actually birth. What causes/prevents condensation? Is it a temperature thing? Thanks!

100% humidity causes condensation.

Even though you may not have condensation it still could be plenty humid enough, hygrometer is the only way to really make sure, but as long as you did your PMP right and have a good pump you shouldn't have to worry.

Confirmed.

Its a temperature difference thing. Water condenses on cooler surfaces...if there is not a large fluctuation in temperature on the inside of the chamber and the walls of the chamber (usually the outside temp) then condensation wont really build. When you add the mushrooms, they'll put off a little heat which will probably add condensation a little, but either way..

Ok I got the hygrometer/thermometer combo and before I stuck it in, my terraruim was nicely condensated. This PMP setup is nice. Now if I could only get my cakes to speed up. Seems they have almost stopped :frown:
