Pinning moisture question
    #525626 - 01/19/02 03:40 PM (16 years, 10 months ago)

Ok.. my first two pins showed up today... one is on the side.. so I guess that one is a goner.. since I doubt it will make it to the surface.. and the other is on top dead center.. but it has alot of moisture on it.. I barely touched it and I felt water...

Is this bad? Will it rot it?
Should I lower humidity? Because I have a huge problem doing that.. any amount of perlite like instantly shoots me to like 95%-100%

growing from cakes i assume?
why do you think the one growing from the side wont make it? i rarely get shrooms to grow from the top of the cake.
your humidity is fine and water accumulating on the mushroom shouldnt be a problem. you can try lowering RH but doubt it will have a noticeable effect other than the outsides of the shrooms should be drier. any lower than 90 and you reduce growth potential

Holy shit people; COMMON SENSE! we were all born with it where did it go?

just take all the perlite out. the caseings will provide their own humidity. if not, mist the cakes. or use a small cup of perlite instead of a whole bottom layer.
