I know that humidity helps alot when you want BIG shrooms.Where should my humidity be at for casings?
I've done cakes...and i know they need a high RH level.But casings are not the same.

85% works pretty well, with 8 hours a day at closer to 95%.

I like 65-70% for casings, with wax paper on top.

does the wax paper let the casing build up C02 while pinning ? then as they grow, it raises it up, giving it more air exchenge?

The wax paper allows for gas exchange while slowing down evaporation of your moisture. As an added benefit, since most contaminant spores land on your casing due to gravity, the wax paper catches them and keeps them from landing on your casing material. Be sure to change it out every second day with a clean sheet.
