humidity in colonization?
    #514860 - 01/08/02 11:13 PM (15 years, 1 month ago)

ok i have the terrarium inside a glovebox. the digital therm/hygro on the top of the terrarium (inside the glovebox) is reading 62% humidity 82F temp. the perlite is underneath the grow mix un the terrarium. Does this mean i need more humditiy or is it humid enough down in the colonizing tray. i'm thinkin since the tterrarium is open at top the humidity is escaping, but it should be ok at the bottom right?, in the colonizing mix i mean.

I suggest streaching some Saran Wrap over the top of your treearium and poking about 20 holes in it with a toothpick. This will keep your humidity high and let your mycelium breathe at the same time.
