That's more humid than I've ever seen a terrarium. I started with an ultrsonic humidifier and found that it produced too much humidity. It takes a very nice hygrometer to measure accurately at high humidity, I would guess that your friends set-up is close to 100% humidity, much too high. I definately agree that you should use perlite for humidification. I've got a friend who uses a bubbler for air exchange and has had no problems. To keep the air clean he made a hepa filter set-up for his air pump, a very good idea in my opinion. He has had the same cake throwing off shrooms for six weeks with no contamination. I would also advise your freind to come up with a better top, other than saran wrap. He will find that it will get very messy to work with. A sheet of glass would work better and is pretty cheep, he can order it to size and have the edges ground for smoothness.

I'm not retarded, I can read my friends hyrgrometer. It said 86%rh and I think it said 67 degrees. On his scale the rh come first. Whats wierd is that the humidifier was turned off last night at about 2 in the morning and he checked on it now 2:30 in the afternoon and it says 88%rh. whats that all about? After he tunred the humidifier off, the "fog" wasn't visible it just looked clear. Does that mean the humidity went out? he mist was gona real fast?

My friend set it up left the humidifier on for over an hour (he thnk he wasn't exactly timing just seeing if everythin was working) He actually just putmore perlite in the tank today. What should he do? Is that 88% 69degree good enough for cakes?

Have you calibrated your hygrometer with salt?

I dont have a lot of faith in perlite alone either. I have seem some terariums that tried perlite alone, only to be forced to add a bubbler later. It might have something to do with the size of the tanks. Perhaps the perlite alone would do the job if it was say 3 inches or more deep in such a large tank. (Say, what size is that aquraium anyway? Is it a 55 gallon long?)

I'm not sure how many gallons, but it's four feet long, 16 inches wide, and 16.5 inches tall.

My friend messed with his setup slightly. cut the tube form the humidifier and propped it up so it doesn't clog like STAL suggested. added more perlite. Then left the humidifier on for hours so that the perlite would stop soaking up the moisture from the air. All seems to be going well. He finally sees some condensation on the sides like he's seen in so many other pictures. He hasn't set the timer as he doesn't know what to set it to. He just checks on it ocasionally and turns the humidifier on when he thinks the humidity dropped. He takes notes so eventually he can get it set and fully automated. Here are some updated pictures.







If you want to see his jars and whatever shrooms he has so far look here: http://www.shroomery.org/forums/showflat.php?Cat=&Board=Forum2&Number=456636&page=&view=&sb=&o=&fpart=all&vc=1 forty thanks for tellin me how to make my links clickable.
