I Can't Get It Up...The Humidity That Is...
    #576911 - 03/12/02 03:15 PM (15 years, 3 months ago)

Hi Kids,
The Temple Priests are very angry because our rubbermaid tank isn't humid enough. It has 9 eq cakes on it, and so far, we can't get the RH above 90% - which is
making these tiny dwarf shrooms with white crowns of fuzz.
We added more wet perlite, but to no avail.
Is there ANYTHING we could do to get the Humidity to get to almost
100%- There is a 2 "deep layer of perlite now. Could more hurt? HELP!

OoD

If I remember correctly, white fuzzy growth on the caps of mushrooms is a sign that the humidity is too high. Maybe I'm thinking of fuzz on cakes, but I believe I am correct. I never even bothered with measuring temperatures or humidity levels in my past experiments and had wonderful results. My guess is that I was nowhere even close to 100% humidity, you might want to try to lower the humidity. Couldn't hurt, right?

maybe yourt humidity gauge is screwy, it hard not to have enough humidity with perlite. chances are your humidity is high, whites spots on caps are a sign. is your chamber sealed in any way?

What ever one is twlling you seems to be correct. Try giving some fresh oxygen. Fan them alittle.
GoodLuck!

My mans Humidity was low in his rubbermaid container. He got some weather stripping made for doors & windows & put it around the top of the container. Worked like a charm. Easy to do also it only cost 2 bucks at lowes.

I plan on weather stripping the rubbermaid container my friend uses for an incubator. He has a problem with water leaking out from the side of the lid. It also seams like a good way to keep it better insulated.

It is possible my humidity guage is crap- its one of those dual dial temp/humidity guages you get from the pet store- it was 20 bucks, but thats no sign of quality-
The walls of the tank are dripping with humidity, and I do remember reading that wasn't good for casing, but im not sure about cakes.
The tank they are in is a rubber maid type, clear palstic tub. It is fairly air tight, there is no leaklage from the lid, and the lid gets mighty wet, even with the vaseline i spread over it.
I went back to the PF teck I got on this site, and it sez symptoms of LOW humidity are fuzzy cakes and crowns of white fuzz, but my tank is exhibiting signs of 90+ humidity.
So, I cleaned off all the abhorts, and add some more dry perlite, and I'm hoping for the best.
If in a week, it doesn't grow, Im going to case.
That always seems to work!
Thank you all for your impute.

OoD

oh no Oracle!!! you couldnt have gotten a worse gauge!!! Reptile gauges? i used to raise all sorts of reptiles and those things arent accurate enough for that. next time you go to the pet store check them all out, they will read differantly.

the way to calibrate a humidity gauge ( in case you didnt know) is to put the gauge inside a zip lock bag. inside the bag you need to have about 1/4 cup of table salt with 1 tsp of water. once you have all these things inside the bag close it and leave it alone for about 6 hrs.
for some reason salt and water will give EXACTLY a humidity of 75%
so if your gauge is higher or lower than 75 after 6-8 hrs you can adjust it.because no matter what your gauge says you know its really 75%.
