humidity and casings
    #4206910 - 05/22/05 04:14 PM (11 years, 6 months ago)

I'm making some 60/40 casings and need to know if a tub with a misty mate and some perlite on the bottom will be good for humidity, or will it be too high/too low?

Thanks

It will be good until pinning begins. Then you need to lower the humidity to between %85-%92. Perlite might create too much humidity at this stage.

So would I be ok with just the misty mate in the tub without the perlite? I thought that may be too little humidity.

It will depend on your particular area and ambiant humidity as well as how often you fan and mist. And dpeneding on your substrate and how much is in the tub, and how big the tub is. Keep an eye on it and see if your casings are drying out, if so add perlite.
