When building the fruiting chamber, what is the purpose of the tin foil platforms for the colonized cakes as shown p26 of “Magic for the Masses”?  Also, if I use a humidifier do I still need perlite in the fruiting chamber?  One more question... Fruiting temperatures are not discussed as much as initial colonization temperatures (which I've read to be 70 to 80F), what are the best temperatures for fruiting and how important is a stable temperature vs one that moves a few degrees during the day/night cycle?  Thanks in advance.

The foil is to prevent contact between the cake and the perlite. Otherwise the fungi may try to colonize the perlite.
