need advice from the pros
    #583189 - 03/19/02 11:39 AM (14 years, 8 months ago)

i have been growing lots and lots of cakes for a short while now-i have moved on to casings-i use perlite for my cakes with great success and im sure i will for pinning my casings as well-
i have read lots and lots of different ways to set up a fruiting chamber for casings(handmistings,coolmist, blah,blah)
but which works the best?
before i go and spend lots of money on shit i really wanna get some input from different people on their own personal expericence or their close friends personal experience-
currently i am leaning towards a fish tank bubbler and pump-would i need a timer?would i run it constanly,or would i need to time it and get it to where it keeps it about 85%?
im a little confused here,so im askin the pros about their own personal experience,or their friends.
what is a good way to keep it at constant 85% with spending the big bucks?
and without handmisting?
thanks once again guys-
Lee

personally, i wouldn't stress over keeping the humidity at 85% exactly. throw casings in a rubbermaid bought at K-Mart for $7, make a wire-mesh platform above a 1.5" layer of moist perlite, and let them babies grow.



after casing, cover 'em in foil and let them sit for a few days to a week, then remove the foil and move them to the rubbermaid with the perlite and until they pin, fan every four hours and give the terrarium a light misting with a spray bottle after each fan. then once pinning starts, fan 4-5x a day (24 hr. period), leave light over the terrarium for about half the time, and let 'em do their stuff

you can try leaving the lid to your terranium slightly cracked.
