Humidity was too low - should I dunk?
    #4491679 - 08/03/05 10:00 PM (12 years, 7 months ago)


I had 12 nice EQ cakes going in a 'poor man's pod' style terrarium. Everything was going great, had some *massive* pinsets. The first few fruits looked spectacular! Then, I cranked the AC in my house when it got really hot out, and the ambient temp dropped to ~72F. The terrarium couldnt keep its humidity up and I didnt catch it quick enough.

I noticed when most of those gorgeous pins started to abhort, and the shrooms that were growing had fuzzy caps.

So anyway, I corrected the situation, and the humidity has been in the high 90's for about a week. Im not getting as many abhorts, but the fruits that are maturing are spindly ,and the caps wont open.

Could the cakes have got dehydrated from the period of low humidity? Think a good 12 hour dunk is in order?
