PM me with any cultivation questions.

I just looked at my profile and realized I had a website at one point in time on geocities, it's not there anymore and I have no idea what I had on it. Anybody remember my website from several years aga? PM if so please.

Near 100% for the rhizo run and then drop the RH to 75% for the fruiting run....

Ok GOSH this is so complicated!! I have a cool mist and i thought that would be sufficient enough for air exchange and for the humidity and now people are saying that the cool mist isn't sefficient enough for humidity and that i need and ultra sonic!! Can't i just mist in there ever once in a while to kepp the rh right? I also have a gauge that says HI when the rh goes above 90% go figure!!1 Oh well I'm going a different store in about an hour and I'll "buy" a new one that works right!!

That coolmist is fine. You can cover the trays lightly with foil until you've gotten the proper rhizo coverage through patching of the casing layer. If you see that the casing layer is drying out, simply use a spray bottle to lightly add H20 to it. You'll have to use a timer or a humidistat so you can maintain 75% for the fruiting cycle. Who knows, the coolmist might get it up to 100% or even close, then you won't have to cover the trays. Don't worry man! LoL!

Casings will do fine anywhere between 85-90% after pinning, during pinning you'll want it around 95% +/- 3%. there are many other factors that can come into play but this will get you very good results.
