How paranoid should I be about misting
    #4526827 - 08/12/05 05:02 PM (11 years, 3 months ago)

The following is a complete lie

I have a really good pinset right now, but due to the fact that my roomie insists on putting on the AC full blast right now the humidity in my place and in my terrarium has dropped. My terrarium dropped from 96% last night to about 80% right now, the cakes are looking a little dry and I want to keep misting the walls. I'm worried that when I mist even if I don't aim at them, a few specs will get on my cakes. Should I worry about that messing with my pinsets or does it not really matter if I am not spraying them directly. I just don't want to mess these guys up. What do you all think.

I use to be worried about that too, now I just mist, if a little water lands on then, no big deal, I havent suffered because of it,

but everything I just said was a complete lie.

just don't spray them directly and you should be ok. mist down the walls and all around the cakes. i even mist from about 2 feet and let the fine mist fall all around, haven't seen any bad reactions from them as of yet.
good luck
peace

As long as you arent spraying them directly, it doesnt hurt. Even spraying them a bit, with VERY fine mist, from a foot or two back, over the cakes, so the mist falls on the shrooms and cakes isnt bad, as long as you dont use peroxide. Use drinking water or spring water or distilled or something instead of tap and they'll be even happier. A little peroxide wont kill them either, but to much misting, with to much, can cause aborts.

Thank you guys.  I thought I was being too paranoid about this, but I figured it was better to ask you all first rather than have a FC full of tiny nubs.

Rod, I'm glad to know that there are other people out there that get worried about dumb shit just like me.  I guess we both better lay off the coffee. :coffee:  Yep, It must be the coffee, cause I sure as hell don't put anything else in my body that might make me paranoid.

i misted my cakes twice a day, because i let the tops off for a few hours twice a day and he sides of the terraniums dried up. anyways, first i misted the sides, then the cakes from about two feet away. Didn't have any problems at all.

Are you using anything else for humidity, or is it just the spray bottle

I'm using perlite. For the most part it has been working okay. It has been a little dry in general, I've tried adding water and taking it out, but my terrarium walls tend to dry out anyway. I've managed to keep it humid by draping a barely damp towel over it and then throwing a comforter over that (this is before I go to sleep). It creates a humid environment directly around the terrarium which transfers to the inside. I just don't think that it is as air tight as i was hoping. It's rubbermaid, but its all clear hard plastic and not that heavy duty softer plastic that a lot of their stuff is made from.
