Humidity problem (too low)
    #423431 - 10/12/01 06:27 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

Hi
the humidity of my terrarium is at 75-78%
the temp is at 75F
I fill perlite in the bottom of the terrarium,with water and h2o2
plus, I added a bubbler and no result!

My cake are 100% colonized and she's in my terrarium since 1week and no shroom!! is that normal??
I use 1/2 pint jar and took me 30days for colonizing at 1/2 only!!!!
I'm a newbie but I find that it is long
I buy it under the counter at my cannabis shop

Any help would appreciate thank you!

Differnet Strains of mushrooms colonize over differnet times. So 30 days may be normal for the strain you have. Also 1 week in the terrarium may not be long enough. If you have full colonization and have put the cake(s) in the terrarium just wait. Your temp is fine, but your hummidity should be higher. Also you may be getting a CO2 build up.
I would add more water to your perlite to humidify it and fan 1-3 times a day to clear out the CO2 buildup.
Questions?
Are there any exaust holes (just above the perlit) to let CO2 out, while you bring in more (clean) air?
What kind of humidity gauge are you using? Analog or digital?
Is your bubbler powerfull enough for the amount of cakes in your terrarium?
Good Luck.

If you've perlite plus a bubbler, your humidity is fine . These cheap hygrometers are not to be trusted. Furthermore, you don't need one, accurate or not.
