I need some help on what to do about smell
    #514743 - 01/08/02 09:12 PM (15 years, 19 days ago)

well, I finally got some growth in the terrium. I have three cakes with shrooms growing right now and the other ones look like they will pin any day. My question is this. I have a sweat smell in the terrium and need to know if I am in trouble. I am using a rumbermaid contianer with perlite in the bottom for humidity. I have a drip shield on top as well. I have no signs of any mold or any discoloration.

a 'sweat smell', to me sounds like bacteria. Did you add any peroxide to the water and perlite in the bottom? If not, then remove everything from the terrarium, clean it out, put fresh perlite, water, and a some H2O2 in the bottom. And just to be safe, I would add a little H2O2 to the spray bottle your using for a few days.

I put a little clorox in the water. I am not using a spray bottle also. I just have heating pads under the container and the humidity is at 98%. Should I spray with H202?????

As long as your humidity stays high and you are fanning a couple times a day, I guess spraying isn't necessary. You spray to bring up the humidity, but if it is high enough, then don't worry. Just make sure to keep up the fanning a couple times a day. I'd do what I said in the first post though to get rid of the smell.

As long as thier as moisture on the inside walls of your terrarium then your humidity should be high enough.

I wouldn't start spraying chemicals around unless I was positive it was needed.

If your shrooms seem to be growing ok and their are no obvious visible signs of contamination then I bet what you smell is the sweet smell of sucess.
