RH not cooperating
    #4307652 - 06/17/05 03:32 PM (12 years, 10 months ago)

I just birthed 5 cakes today, 4 B+ 1 Amazon, the problem is.... the RH will not go past 81-82 even with misting. All my shopping was done at wal-mart and I got a really cheap bag of perlite that looks and feels very similar to styrofoam peices and a really cheap thermogrometer. I'm starting to think that either my perlite isn't doing it's job well enough or my thermogrometer is too cheap to give an accurate reading. Any ideas, comments, suggestions would be appreciated.

Well I was in the same situation as you not to long ago, I bought a cheap hygrometers and a bag of perlite and mine would only read 70 percent but the sides of my frowing chamber always had water on them. I would spray about 3 times a day or so. It worked out they finally fruited. I dont know if my hygrometer was broken or what. I think as long as you are misting the sides of the grow chamber and the water is staying then you should be ok. It was for me./

perlite is exactly as you described it. soak it, drain it, then put it in the terrarium. add your cakes and give it some time for the rh to come up. like tomarrow i would worry if you aren't showing signs of condensation on the walls of the tub. perlite has always given me up to 100% rh. no spraying or anything.
good luck
peace
