Title: about to start my first grow this week
Post by: noobshroomer on October 14, 2012, 07:19:01 PM
Hi guys I'm about to start my first grow this week. I'm going to use Rye berries as my substrate. I feel very confident in everything up to the point after casing. After I sandwich the colonized substrate between my casings I know the temp has to be between 75-80F and in the dark for 2-3 days then patching if needed. But what I cant find any info on is humidity.

1. During the pre-pinning stage do I need to introduce humidity or not?
2. As far as gas exchange how often should I pop the lid a little bit to allow the exchange if at all?

As far as casing goes I'm Going to be using 1 block coco coir and 1 quart of vermiculite.

Thanks for any help and contributions to clear up my confusion.
