monitering RH without meter
    #562209 - 02/25/02 05:53 AM (15 years, 4 months ago)

I dont have anything to mesure the RH so i have to just look for symtomes in the fruiting chamber. Right now i have no problems growing shitloads of mycelluim but cant get any fruit so i suspect my RH is too high or low. Should there be water droplets forming amongst the mycelluim? large ones, small ones, or non at all?

are you doing cakes or casings?

when you see the walls sweat-i have read ,that means usually that your humidity is 95+water should not be forming on the mycellium though-or at least mine dont and they are doing great-

You didn't say if you had cakes or casings.
But i will assume...you have cakes.

You should have high humidity for cakes.....95% humidity or higher.
Temps between 72 and 76 degrees.

Do you have perilite in the bottom of your fruiting chamber?
If you don't have a humidity gauge....your best bet is to use perilite....til you get one.
Wet the perilite with a water and peroxide mix.....10 to 1.
Here is a good humidity gauge for $8.00 (Found by Anno)

I don't know why you have water droplets on your mycelluim (cakes?).
Are you spraying them ?

Both cakes and casing. The droplets for on the casing but not the cakes. The casing is cocanut-fiber with lime to up the PH. The mycellium grows extremely fast in the cocanut fiber. The cakes are brownd rice flower and verm. Also some are just rye grain. Lights are on for 12h and off for 12h. The temp is consistant at 72F. A 1" fan exchanges the air a few times a day. Over the last half year i've mastered gowing mycellium but have never seen a fruit yet. what am i doing wrong???
