hey guys my friend is just a newbie but he thinks he put a little to much perlite and a little bit to much water and he can't keep the humidity below 95% becuse he has casings in it. and the suggested(for casings) humidty was high 80's i guess. i hope i helped

From what I've read I believe you dont need any perlite if you are doing a casing...the casing layer should provide enough humidity for pinning

are u sure it is at 80 cuz alot of humidity gauges dont measure accuritly at high rh values. If there is lots of condensation o the sides of the tub the humity is perrty high, if not then maybe try turning off the air pump for longer periods of time, it could be that the air being pumped in is too dry.

The most incomprehensible thing about the universe is that it is comprehensible.

mr. lincoln do you think that it would be ok to not use perlite when humidty out side is only 45%. im pretty sure he would rather do with out it because he is always itching his arms from it.LOL

id use the perlite anyways (with casings or not)... if you go this route, fanning will make the difference... youll see..
