a misting question
    #4640941 - 09/10/05 05:58 AM (11 years, 8 months ago)

does anyone know. once you have mycelium break through the top of the casing and colonizes most of the top casing am i supposed to mist at all or no misting? and if i am supposed to mist even with mycelium there on top should i mist alot or just a couple sprays?

what happened is my casing was really dark at first then mycelium poked through and grew really good and i didnt mist at all.. well, now it pulled away from the sides and looks really light color and the mycelium looks like it shrunk... am i doomed? how should i get the casing from light color to dark color again ? mist or pour water in the casing?

That sounds like overlay. Read up on how/when you should mist and about overlay HERE.

i read that link you put . I dont think its overlay cause once i cased three days later the mycelium poped through and i put in the fc and then within another 3 days mycelium was all over and growing upwards.. well, after a few more days that stopped and the mycelium kinda shrunk and looks light.. should i just spray or pour water between the gap from the pan and casing till its moist again?

OMFG!!! How many answers do you need, bro? Definately dont POUR anything, lol. If it's pulling away, then its dry. Just mist till it glistens (looks dewy), and put it back in the fc. Thats all! Jeez

hey man.. im asking for help and opinions from not just one but as many people that can answer lol... 2nd the reason im freaking out is cause i cannot get my humidity over 70 % in the green house... so i swithed to my pmp and i still cannot get over 70% i have two bubble wands each wand has its own pump... and i also connected my cool mist to the pmp. my temp is between 75-77 degrees ... i just dont want my casing to dry out anymore... i misted the casing a little bit an hour ago and the inside of the pmp .. i dont know what else to do... i have lava rocks in the pmp if that helps

Hey man, every question you asked was answered in that link. READ. These are very basic questions you are asking. Take the coolmist out of the PMP setup. You should have plenty of air exchange with the bubble wands. You are probably pushing too much air into your PMP. That's probably why your casings are drying up. Who told you to hook up a cool mist to a PMP anyway?

mist it lightly a few times a day until you have the moisture content back in the casing layer. do this from a distance of 1-2', using a sweeping motion from one side of the tub to the other and back.
does the pmp have any condensation on the sides or lid of the tub? with the two pumps and a coolmist i would have to say your rH is higher than 70%, are you sure your hygrometer is working properly?

:peace:

And why are you posting these SAME questions again in the Advanced Mycology forum? These are hardly advanced questions.

no one did.. that was my own stupidity... i know my question was answered on the misting which is fine... i was just saying i like to here a couple answers not just one incase there are differences cause my luck i would try the first answer and someone would say why did u do that, you should have done this ... okay took out the cool mist ... i will let it run for a couple hours while i go to the depot and see what happens...would the temp outside the pmp make a difference for the humidity inside the pmp?

No, it's usually the RH outside of the fruiting chamber that effects the RH inside of it, not the temps.

Also, if you have holes to let air escape, you may want to close them up to keep the humidity inside. When I used a PMP, I didn't use any holes. The C02 will make it's way out wherever it can. Especially since you said you have an air pump attached to each hose.

I would read the directions on that, but if it's brand spanking new I would hope not.

If it doesn't mention calibration, don't. There is some kind of method in here involving salt to calibrate hygrometers. I don't remember where though. If you look up calibration I'm sure you'll find it.

OMFG!!!!!!!!!! i cannot believe i did this.. i thought the single wire sensor was supposed to be put in the pmp by itself ... i did not know the whole unit was to be put inside the fc.. oh my god... now my Humidity is 95% ... im gonna smoke a nice big fat bowl now to unstress ...

temp does affect the rH values, the higher the temp the more water vapor the air can hold, the lower the temp the less water vapor the air can hold.
