Coco - Drying out
    #542657 - 02/06/02 05:06 PM (15 years, 10 months ago)

Alright, I was a dummy and kept wondering why my casings kept going dry. I realized that the air pump that I left on kept circulating drier air, thus drying out the casings. I had to mist quite a bit a few times a day to get it back to normal.

Anyways, i havent been using the air pump as much, but my casings are still getting dry. I have lots of perlite in there, and condensation is present along all the walls of the terarium.

Pins are about a few millimeters, so very small right now. I have been misting still due to the fact its a little dry, and I know that the casing layer needs to be at its moistest during this time period. Misting a few times a day wont hurt the little guys, as long as its light, correct?

Too much water will kill developing pins. After pins get about pea size your humidity should be 85-92%. Let em grow a bit then spray the casing so its moist.

If you will it, it is no dream.
