    #4631461 - 09/07/05 09:08 PM (11 years, 2 months ago)

OK i have a FC setup that used to have 2 holes fitted with pvc and tyvek but when i only got to 70% i decided i should close up the holes and so i did with masking tape. STILL can't get it above 70%. Luckily my cakes are in a dunk right now and not in there but i have to take them out tomorrow! The perlite seems damp and the very bottom perlite is a lil slushy. This good or bad?? O yea and i have sprayed the SHIT out of the whole FC. humm...I'm stumped...help?

No slush.

To much water. You want the perlite damp...

That'll fix your prob.

You can have water up to half the depth of the perlite without any problems, the water wicks to the huge surface area and evaporates raising RH. Your lid may not be sealing well or maybe your looking in on them too much or too many fresh air exchanges. Once your perlite is saturated it will lose all it's surface area and will become useless.
