perlite + casing?
    #994660 - 10/26/02 02:02 PM (15 years, 7 months ago)

im about to put my casing into the fruiting terrerium and im trying to decide on how to keep the humidity up in the terreruim.. ive read several different opinions on what to use. i was thinking about putting some perlite and water in the bottom of the chamber, but i also read that all you need to do with casings is mist the sides of the terrerium since the water used is obtained from the casing itself. what do you experienced peeps think? also where can i get something that tells me relative humidity?

As long as there's room for the humidity to rise between the edges of your casing and the sides of your growing chamber, you should be just dandy. Though not my favorite form of humidification, perlite does work. It is a good idea to keep a hygrometer around, which you can get at Wal-Mart. They have a good digital one at my neighboorhood Wal-Mart for ~$15 that does both humidity and temperature and has a high/low memory for each.
