What methods work well for you? How do you humidify? What problems have you faced growing any mushrooms in a dry climate? How do you cope?

I've lived in dry climates. I'v been using either perlite, an ultrasonic, or a combination of both, plus or minus some misting. right now, i'm having great success holding 95% with both perlite in a smaller space (with a little bit of spraying) and perlite + ultrasonic in a larger martha-type enclosure.

Agar found a pretty interesting "swamp mat" possibility. There is also the fish pump bubbler possibility...

I've been knocking around that idea about the swamp cooler pad since Agar's post. It makes a lot of sense. I have a few ideas of my own but I wanted to ask what others have tried, gather some more info and test my hypothesis through the summer heat of Spangladesh. I had problems with Pearlite getting bacterial. I think it's not the best thing for reducing contams but I don't have experience with anything else. I was also thinking of trying lava rock or hydroton with circulating water in an aerated drainage bed (Kinda like Hydroponics).

I grow in the dry southwest and don't really have many problems at all. A couple inches of perlite and occasional misting keeps the humidity of my tub in a nice mid 90s range.

I live in the desert and just use a poor mans pod to grow my casings. Really ive found no problems with growing in a dry climate unless I forget to put the lid back on or something. I haven't had any problems with temp in the summer, i dont have air conditioning, but since im in a high desert it usually get down into the 40-50s at night so i can regulate the temp. in my house by opening widows during the night and closing them in the day to keep the cool air in.

Sometimes the temps in my growing area do get a little too high (high 80s/low 90s). I just make sure a fan is kept on and the AC is on. Not very hard at all.
